Duke reserve forward Jack White is doubtful for Sunday’s NCAA Tournament second-round game against UCF due to a lingering hamstring injury, according to Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski.
“We don’t think he’s going to play,” Krzyzewski said after Saturday’s practice.
White, a team captain, missed Duke’s first-round win Friday against North Dakota State.
The coach said the 6-foot-7 junior will test the hamstring in warmups Sunday before the second-seeded Blue Devils (30-5) face the ninth-seeded Knights (24-8) in Columbia, S.C.
White has averaged 21.5 minutes per game in 33 games this season, including three starts. The Australia native averages 4.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.
