Duke loses Zion Williamson at a slight knee sprain when the shoe blows out

DURHAM, New York City – Duke freshman sensation Zion Williamson was forced to beat rival North Carolina on Wednesday night with what Blue Devils coach Mike Kzryzewski called a "slight knee-jerk".

Williamson gripped his right knee in pain as he clumsily slipped and fell as his left-hand Nike basketball shoe broke apart as he planted hard while dribbling near the free-throw line. The blue rubber sole came off the white shoe from heel to toe on the outside edge, leaving Williamson's foot all the way through the big gap.

He walked lightly, but on his own, before returning to the locker room without shoes.

After the game, a loss of 88-72 Blue Devils, Kzryzewski said Williamson's knee is stable and they would know more about a schedule on Thursday.
