McClure May Miss Virginia Game

Third year sophomore David McClure's status is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game

DURHAM, N.C. - Duke sophomore forward David McClure’s status is doubtful for Virginia after suffering a hyperextended left knee following a second-half collision in No. 10 Duke’s 75-61 victory over Boston College on Jan. 28.

An MRI conducted on Sunday night after the game revealed no structural damage to the left knee, which was surgically repaired in 2005 to correct an osteochondral lesion on his patella. McClure missed the entire 2005-06 season for the Blue Devils recovering from the surgery. He has been a key contributor this season.

“Right now, I would say Dave is doubtful for the Virginia game on Thursday night,” said Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. “We’ll see how he responds to treatment this week. We’re pleased that the test results showed no structural damage and that at some point, he will be back. He’s had a tremendous impact on this year’s team and we need him.”

The 6-6, 200-pound McClure is averaging 5.3 points and 5.2 rebounds for the Blue Devils (18-3, 5-2 ACC). He is shooting .560 from the field (42-of-75) in 21.9 minutes per contest. One of Duke’s more versatile defenders, he ranks second on the team with 31 steals and 15 blocked shots.
