Zion Williamson injury update: Duke expects star back Thursday for ACC Tournament

Zion Williamson injury update: Duke expects star back Thursday for ACC Tournament Williamson initially suffered the knee injury during the Blue Devils' first matchup against the Tar Heels on Feb. 20. "I think we'll get Zion back for Thursday," Krzyzewski told reporters after his team's loss to No. 3 North Carolina on Saturday. "He worked out this morning — again, no contact — but Monday, there will be. Hopefully, we'll get a couple good days of practice where he can be 5-on-5, and then see how that goes. But the way he looks right now, I think it's just a matter of getting in shape, getting in game shape, and going forward.

Zion Williamson's sneakers were the talk of college basketball on Feb. 20 when he slipped and bursted through his PG 2.5s at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C. The freshman phenom has been out of the lineup since the injury, but will return on Thursday against Syracuse in the ACC Tournament.

So with Zion returning to the floor, an obvious question arose on Thursday morning: What shoes will he wear when he returns to the floor?

It looks like Williamson will be eschewing the PG 2.5s on Thursday, instead opting to wear the Kyrie 4s. Hopefully Zion's new shoes will stay on his feet against the Orange.
