Reddish’s status still uncertain
Cam Reddish said the left knee injury that caused his last-minute removal from No. 1 Duke’s lineup Friday is something that has bothered him since the team’s game with North Carolina on Feb. 20.
The chronic condition, he said, worsened Thursday.
It’s the second time this season Reddish, a 6-foot-8 freshman forward, had to be removed from the starting lineup so close to tip off. On Jan. 14, Reddish became ill in the half hour prior to Duke’s home game with Syracuse.
On Saturday, Reddish’s availability remained uncertain.
“It will be a game-time decision,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “He’s getting treatment today.”
Reddish said the knee is swollen after he tweaked and aggravated the condition. He’s going through massage therapy and cold tub sessions to aid in healing.
How he feels Sunday will determine if he’ll play.
“I just want to be close to 100 percent,” Reddish said. “I’d love to feel good.”
