Ryan Kelly injury: Return targeted for Senior Night

USA TODAY Sports

The 6'11 senior could be back for his final game at Cameron Indoor.

Duke forward Ryan Kelly has been off the floor since early January with a foot injury; one that has consistently nagged him for a couple seasons. Before Kelly went down, the Blue Devils had a perfect record, but they promptly lost two straight with their front-court stalwart laid up because of injury. But he could be back in time for the end of the season. CBS' Jeff Goodman reports Kelly went through some drills at practice Wednesday but nothing with contact.

Kelly played in Duke's first 15 games this season, averaging 13.4 points per contest while grabbing 5.4 rebounds per game. Kelly was also a threat from beyond the arc, hitting 52.1 percent of his 48 field-goal attempts from long range. His return is well-timed, as the conference and NCAA tournaments are on the way. The senior from Raleigh had hoped to be on the floor to face the Miami Hurricanes this Saturday, but will now aim for Tuesday's final home game against the Virginia Cavaliers.
