Williamson was, of course, injured on the first possession of Duke’s loss to North Carolina. The next day, it was diagnosed as a Grade 1 knee sprain. In the two games without Williamson, Duke is 1-1 with win at Syracuse and a loss at Virginia Tech. Once again, RJ Barrett will need to lead the Blue Devils.
Williamson is the No. 1 draft prospect in the country and the frontrunner for ACC Player of the Year.
