Irving working out again, but won't play

GREENSBORO - Freshman guard Kyrie Irving is working out with Duke's basketball team again before the Blue Devils' ACC final game with North Carolina this afternoon, but will not play.

Irving suffered a toe injury Dec. 4 and has not played since. In addition to jogging and shooting, Irving performed some half-speed, one-on-one dribbling and defensive drills with walk-on Todd Zafirovski.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski has said there is no timetable for Irving's return and that the team is preparing as if Irving will not be available to the Blue Devils for the rest of the season.

You're killing me Kyrie! Just come back by the second round and we should be able to repeat.

What a big tease, Coach K is! I hope Irving comes back next week, and Duke gets steamrolled by some mid-major upstart. Spare us the drama.
