Senior guard Seth Curry will not play Saturday against Delaware due to a left ankle injury, according to Duke Men’s Basketball’s official twitter account.
The same tweet tabs junior Tyler Thornton as Curry’s likely replacement in the starting lineup. Thornton is averaging 3.4 points and 20.6 minutes.
Curry has been dealing with a lower leg injury dating back to the preseason and has been limited all season. He aggravated the injury in the second half of the Blue Devils’ 73-68 victory over Ohio State on Wednesday. Despite the injury, this is the first game he’ll miss this year.
