Duke Forward Mason Plumlee Injured

Now, I don’t wish injury upon anyone. But I also don’t wish success upon Duke.

And success is going to be tough at the beginning of the season without star freshman Mason Plumlee, who fractured his wrist in practice Wednesday.

This is going to really hurt the Devils, who were probably going to have Plumlee and his brother, Miles, in the starting five. As his injury doesn’t require surgery, he’ll probably be back this season. Lucky for us that’s precious development time for a freshmen (see Tyler Zeller last year).

Hopefully he’ll be back just in time for the showdown with the Wear twins that I’m so eagerly anticipating.
