Duke’s Jones misses 2nd straight with foot sprain

Duke point guard Tre Jones will miss Saturday’s matchup against Brown with a mild left foot sprain, the school announced.

He remains day-to-day.

It’s the second consecutive game that Jones has missed for the Blue Devils. He was also absent against Wofford on Dec. 19.

Jones is averaging 15.6 points and 7.1 assists for a Duke team that will return to conference play on Tuesday against Boston College.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski didn’t seem concerned about Jones’ long-term viability after the team’s win on Dec. 19.

“He has a slight sprain and it’s better with this break to get well,” Krzyzewski said then. “He’ll be back and he’ll play right away.”
