Duke freshman and potential No. 1 NBA draft pick Jahlil Okafor is in a walking boot after injuring his ankle in Wednesday’s overtime win over the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Okafor is questionable for Saturday’s game against Clemson.
Okafor finished the game with 12 points and 13 rebounds while playing the entire second half and overtime. But Duke is being cautious with the freshman big man.
If Okafor doesn’t play, or even plays hurt, the Blue Devils could be in trouble.
North Carolina outscored Duke 62-40 in the paint tonight. Tar Heels outscored Duke 40-22 in the paint after Jahlil Okafor hurt his ankle.
