Duke is a different team without Ryan Kelly. The Blue Devils will likely be without the 6-foot-11 senior for at least another couple weeks, sources told CBSSports.com.
Kelly reaggravated a foot injury, and sat out Duke's road loss to N.C. State this past weekend. His absence changes the Dukies, because Kelly can spread the floor with him ability to shoot the 3. He's also a solid, positional defender who helps Plumlee on the glass. Now Josh Hairston and Amile Jefferson will share Kelly's minutes -- and neither is overly skilled.
Anyway, the word I've gotten on Kelly is that medical personnel are confident he'll return this season, but that a realistic return date is early to mid-February.
