Zion Williamson to return for Duke on Thursday
Zion Williamson will return for Duke on Thursday, facing Syracuse in the ACC Tournament.
The highly rated Williamson injured his left knee last month against North Caroline when he planted his foot to cut and his shoe split apart.
He has been sidelined since, with the Blue Devils (26-5) struggling in his absence, winning just three of their last six games.
However, Williamson practiced fully with Duke this week in preparation for his return against Syracuse (20-12).
He is averaging 21.6 points per game with 8.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists.
