More tests for Duke's Irving this week

DURHAM - Duke freshman point guard Kyrie Irving will have a scan performed on the injured big toe on his right foot Tuesday or Wednesday, coach Mike Krzyzewski said.

Irving missed his fifth straight game Sunday night and remains on crutches. Krzyzewski has said Irving might be out for the season, but his status at this point in uncertain.

"As long as no surgery is needed, or it appears that it might not be needed, we're going with this action," Krzyzewski said after top-ranked Duke's 74-63 defeat of Miami at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

On Sunday, Irving's foot was placed in a new cast, and his toe was placed in a position that will aid its healing, Krzyzewski said.
