Mike Krzyzewski provides update on health

Duke traveled to Georgia Tech earlier this week but did so without Mike Krzyzewski for the first time since 1995as he had to stay behind after being hospitalized in Durham.

Friday night, however, Coach K returned to patrol the sidelines for the Blue Devils, and gave out more details on his absence.

Beat writer Laura Keeley of the Raleigh News & Observer has the details.
