Is Zion Williamson hurt?
Zion's injury was called a knee sprain by head coach Mike Krzyzewski. It's considered a minor injury but with Williamson's massive potential and expectation that he will be the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the minor injury made major headlines.

Duke will be looking to have a strong week to close out the month of February as they aim to reclaim the No. 1 ranking in the nation. Gonzaga took over the top seed in the country in the latest AP Top 25 Poll which was released on Monday.
The Blue Devils (24-3, 12-2) will be looking to win on the road without Zion on the floor against Virginia Tech (21-6, 10-5). In the meantime, RJ Barrett takes over.
