Duke freshman Tre Jones suffered an AC joint separation in his right shoulder early in the first half of Monday night’s loss to Syracuse.  He dove on the floor for a loose ball when he collided with a Syracuse player and stayed down in pain.

Jones left the upset loss after five minutes with just two points, two assists and four steals.


There has been no timetable released for Jones to return to action for the Blue Devils.  After the game Coach K revealed that he expects Jones will miss “some time” with the injury.

The schedule isn’t sympathetic to Duke’s loss.  The Blue Devils will take on fourth ranked Virginia on Saturday.
