Jefferson to miss rest of the season


Duke senior forward Amile Jefferson will miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season. Team doctors have determined that he will not be able to return due to a right foot fracture sustained in December.

Jefferson missed all but nine games this season due to the injury. In those nine games, he averaged 11.4 points and 10.3 rebounds.

Duke will seek a medical hardship waiver on Jefferson’s behalf in anticipation that he will be eligible for the 2016-17 season.
