Mike Krzyzewski out vs. Wake Forest, non-COVID related illness

As Duke looks to rebound for last Saturday’s home loss vs. Miami, the Blue Devils will be without head coach Mike Krzyzewski at Wake Forest on Wednesday.

According to a tweet from the official Duke Basketball account, Coach K will be out due to a non-COVID 19 related virus.

Jon Scheyer will serve as the team’s acting head coach.

This marks the the third time in the last few years that Krzyzewski has missed a Duke-Wake Forest game. Back in 2017, then associate head coach Jeff Capel filled in for Coach K — with Duke winning in Winston-Salem.

During the 2020-21 season, Scheyer held court for Coach K when Duke defeated Wake Forest in Durham, too.
