Zion Williamson expected to play in ACC Tournament
The return of Zion Williamson is imminent.
Coach K said after Duke’s 79-70 loss to North Carolina on Saturday that Williamson is expected to play in the ACC Tournament. The freshman phenom is also set to participate with contact in practice on Monday.
K: Initial diagnosis on Bolden is MCL sprain. Not sure how severe. Also said Zion expected to play in ACC Tournament and take on contract in practice Monday.

Williamson hurt his knee in the first minute of Duke’s loss to UNC on Feb. 20 after his shoe ripped apart. He exited the game and missed the team’s remaining five regular season games. They went 3-2 in that span and were 3-3 if you count the game against UNC where he only played a minute.
Getting Williamson back for the postseason will be a huge boost for Duke. They looked like the best team in the country with him on the court and merely a good ACC team without him.
