DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke says forward Amile Jefferson will be out indefinitely with an unspecified right foot injury.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski announced the injury Monday in a brief statement issued by the school.
Krzyzewski called the injury "unfortunate, to say the least," but praised Jefferson as being "strong in both person and character."
Jefferson — the leading returning scorer from last year's national championship team — has started all nine games this year while averaging 11 points and 10 rebounds for the seventh-ranked Blue Devils (8-1).
They return from a 10-day break for exams to play host to Georgia Southern on Tuesday night.
