On Wednesday, the Duke Blue Devils got some pretty bad news when they learned guard Matt Jones had went down with a highly sprained ankle. He was originally ruled to be out for today’s game against Louisville.
However, it looks like he could be seeing some playing time today against the Cardinals. ESPN’s Andy Katz reported that Jones was warming up against Louisville and could play.
From our crew at Duke. Matt Jones is warming up and now may play at some point against Louisville.

Jones’s presence would be a huge deal for the Blue Devils. He would add in some much-needed depth for the team and could be a big reason why they keep their current five-game win streak intact.
The Blue Devils and Cardinals take the court at 12 noon EST on ESPN.
