Who knows how long Zion Williamson will miss in this monstrous rivalry contest, but he came up lame on Duke's first offensive possession of the game. Despite the stumble, there was no shortage of evidence of Williamson's strength. On the injury, he literally tore through a Nike shoe with one firm stomp like a madman out of a comic book.

The grabbing of the back of the leg was far more worrisome, but the enduring image will be this true Hulk stuff, as well as Barack Obama pointing at a prone Zion, pointing out the injury issue.
None of the folks who paid thousands of dollars to attend this one, from Spike Lee to Ken Griffey Jr., wants to see Zion Williamson laid up. In the early minutes, however, he was able to walk off the court, and RJ Barrett has more than picked up the slack.
This team isn't even real life.
