Zion Williamson ruled out Saturday against Miami

The Skechers ad which ran in the sports section of Sunday’s New York Times is titled “Just Blew It.”

The Skechers ad which ran in the sports section of Sunday’s New York Times is titled “Just Blew It.”

Earlier in the week, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski proclaimed that Zion Williamson could very well suit up on Saturday (tonight) when the Blue Devils meet Miami on home court.

Zion Williamson #1 of the Duke Blue Devils reacts after falling as his shoe breaks against Luke Maye #32 of the North Carolina Tar Heels during their game at Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 20, 2019 in Durham, North Carolina.

Williamson has missed two games since injuring his knee early in a loss to North Carolina on February 21. He is considered day-to-day with a Grade 1 knee sprain.

Despite holding off the Orange in the team's first game without Zion, Duke struggled against Virginia Tech.

As Bon crawled toward her, she held the gun over her head and used a chair to protect herself from him before tossing it away. The suspect, 59-year-old Larry Ray Bon, is from MI but recently was living in the West Palm Beach area, according to Fleck.

Williamson, the presumed No. 1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft by many, is averaging 21.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game for the Blue Devils. Miami has had a rough season to date, entering the contest with a 12-15 record, including a awful 4-11 mark in ACC play.

They close the regular season at No.5 North Carolina (23-5, 13-2) on March 9 at 6 p.m. "But until that time is, which we don't know yet, we're just going to keep playing how we know how we can play and come back even stronger".

"I think we are obviously a different team right now with Zion out but I think we are finding some pieces and we're growing a little bit", said Duke sophomore guard Alex O'Connell, who has entered the starting lineup in Williamson's absence.

And yet, here we are, 3 games away from the ACC Tournament, and Zion Williamson still hasn't been cleared to resume team activities, let alone game time action. "We're trying to adjust to not having him, and day by day we're getting there, but hopefully, we'll have him back soon".
