​Zion Williamson scared the entire basketball world on Wednesday when he ​busted through his shoe and collapsed to the floor with an injury in the opening minute of Duke's matchup against North Carolina.


According to the team, Williamson sustained a Grade 1 right knee sprain and his status is day-to-day, which should be a massive relief for Blue Devils fans.

​​The consensus top pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, Williamson has led the Blue Devils to 23-3 record. He's averaged 21.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game this year.


His presence was sorely missed last night as Duke succumbed to UNC in an ugly 88-72 loss at home. He was ​pulled immediately after the injury, logging only one minute of play. The team says that he's progressing as expected, but we're not sure what that holds for his future in the NCAA.


He came up with a noticeable limp after sustaining the injury, and it only seemed to get worse when he walked to the locker room.

He's one of the premier talents in college basketball right now and looks to have a promising NBA career ahead of him, and all eyes will be on his injury leading up to March Madness.
