Duke continued to have injuries ravage its top-ranked freshman class. The school confirmed that five-star center Marques Bolden will miss time with a left lower-leg injury. Bolden sat out the team’s final exhibition game, but he appeared courtside and didn’t appear to be limping. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said that his absence was an attempt to give Bolden rest before the start of the regular season. Several outlets, including 247Sports reported that Bolden had been seen on campus on crutches on Monday morning. Bolden will be held out of Duke’s home game against Marist on Nov. 11 and against Grand Canyon the following day. He will be reevaluated following the weekend. Bolden scored seven points and added seven rebounds in the Blue-White game. He had 13 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks against Virginia State in the first exhibition game.The Blue Devils didn’t have five-star freshmen Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum for their first two preseason exhibition games. Giles is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, while Tatum suffered a foot sprain in preseason practice. Tatum is expected to play in Friday’s season opener, and Giles is expected back later in the month.
