Duke basketball announced on its official Twitter account today that freshman forward Marvin Bagley — the ACC’s leading scorer and rebounder — will not play against Georgia Tech this evening. Bagley suffered a mild knee sprain in the first half of Thursday’s loss at North Carolina.
This will be the first game Bagley’s missed this season; according to KenPom, the star freshman has played in 82 percent of Duke’s minutes this season. Bagley projects as consensus top-5 pick in this year’s NBA Draft. That guarantees a first-year salary of over $4 million.
