Red­dish’s sta­tus still un­cer­tain

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - College Basketball - — STEVE WISEMAN

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.”
