Jayson Tatum to miss two weeks with foot sprain

Duke says freshman Jayson Tatum will miss the Blue Devils' two exhibition games with a sprained left foot.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski announced the extent of Tatum's injury Wednesday, one day after he was hurt during practice.

The school says the anticipated recovery time is two weeks and Krzyzewski said it was "the best possible news" because it's "a manageable injury that will not impact Jayson long-term."

Tatum will not play in exhibition games against Virginia State on Friday night or Augustana on Nov. 4.

Tatum is a 6-foot-8 forward and key member of a six-man freshman class that has the Blue Devils voted No. 1 in the coaches' preseason Top 25. The Associated Press poll will be released Monday.
