Duke faces another ACC test against the Syracuse Orange at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Monday night. The Blue Devils buzz is full throttle in Durham, as fans were lining up outside the door as early as this weekend to see this star-studded Duke team with their own eyes.
While Zion Williamson is in the starting lineup and will play despite getting poked in the eye against Florida State, Cam Reddish--who hit the heroic game-winner against the Noles--is not in the starting-five and will likely not play due to an illness.
Cam Reddish is out tonight for Duke. So they'll have to turn to their other 5* future NBA lotto picks to help them.— /r/CollegeBasketball (@redditCBB) January 14, 2019
Reddish is a sharpshooter and key part of the Blue Devils' offense, as he allows Coach K to spread the floor with a proven perimeter shooter. Without him, expect RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson to try and fill in as threats from 3-point range.
However, considering both have struggled at times to shoot from long distance, that might be easier said than done.
