On Tuesday, Duke forward Ryan Kelly will undergo surgery on the right foot that kept him out 13 games this season. During the season it was unclear if surgery would ever be necessary, but the decision to go forward with it was made after Duke was eliminated from the NCAA tournament, according to The Chronicle.
After sitting out those 13 games this season, Kelly came back in a memorable way by pouring in 36 points against Miami. That would prove to be the best he would look all season, though. In the NCAA tournament, he averaged 6.3 points per game and went 1-for-13 from beyond the arc.
For the season, Kelly averaged 12.9 points and 5.3 assists per game for Duke.
His Duke career ended in the Elite Eight with a loss to eventual champion Louisville, so the focus on his recovery is if he will be ready for draft workouts. There is currently no timetable for his return, but an update is expected after surgery.
