DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN/AP) – Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said freshman Zion Williamson is doubtful for the Blue Devils game against North Carolina on Saturday. 

Krzyzewski said Williamson would probably “not be doubtful” for the tournament. 

The race for player of the year honors in the five power conferences is wrapping up this week with the end of the regular-season schedule.

The list of top candidates include Duke’s freshman duo of RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson in the Atlantic Coast Conference. 

Williamson, a freshman, suffered a Grade 1 sprain in his right knee in the opening minute of the Blue Devils’ clash with rival North Carolina on Feb. 20. 

Williamson was second in the Atlantic Coast Conference with 21.6 points per game and third in rebounds with 8.8 on average, the release said. He also leads the conference in field-goal percentage (.683) and steals per game (2.2).
