DURHAM — Duke freshman Zion Williamson will not play against Virginia Tech on Tuesday night, Coach Mike Krzyzewski says.

Williamson sprained his right knee during a fall during the first minute of Duke's 88-72 loss to North Carolina on Wednesday night. The shoe on his left foot slipped and tore apart.

Duke is using a four-step recovery process, Krzyzewski said during an ACC coaches teleconference today.

"He's going through that, and when he gets through all of them, we'll see where he's at," Krzyzewski said. "There's no timetable. We don't want to put the pressure of time on him."
