Former Duke Player Daniel Ewing signs with Russia Team

After Daniel Ewing was released from the Los Angeles Clippers this summer, he wasn’t sure where he would be playing basketball next.  No other NBA team picked him up, so he decided to pack his bags and head to Russia where he signed a two year contract to play for the Khimki team in Russia.

We wish Daniel all the best, and hope to see him back in the NBA soon.  Keep your head up high and keep on ballin!

DeMarcus Nelson breaks left wrist

Duke senior DeMarcus Nelson suffered a left wrist injury on Thursday, July 12 in the evening session of the Pan American Games Trials at Haverford College. Nelson, one of 32 collegiate players seeking a roster spot on the team, is expected to return to Durham to have the wrist examined by the Duke medical staff. 

**Update, Nelson does have a broken bone in his wrist and will be out 4-6 weeks.  Just like Zoubek, we can expect him back for fall practices.**

Nelson averaged a team-high 14.1 points per game and was one of two guards in the ACC to average over 5.0 rebounds per game last season. In addition to finishing second on the team in rebounds (5.4 rpg.), he also led the Blue Devils in steals with 44. As a junior, Nelson more than doubled his scoring output from his sophomore season and connected on 47.8 percent of his field goals and 36.4 percent of his three-pointers.

Brian Zoubek breaks foot in pickup game

Duke center Brian Zoubek will be sidelined for at least eight weeks after surgery to repair a broken bone in his left foot.The 7-foot-1 sophomore was injured during a pickup game Monday. He had surgery Tuesday to repair a fifth metatarsal fracture. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Zoubek should be fine when practice opens in the fall.

“It is a setback for Brian,” Krzyzewski said. “He worked diligently this summer to add weight to his frame and he did so successfully.”

Zoubek is at 266 pounds after weighing 250 as a freshman, when he averaged 3.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 7.3 minutes per game.
