DURHAM, N.C. --
Duke men's basketball
coach
Mike Krzyzewski
was released from the Duke University
Medical Center at approximately noon today (Nov. 15).
Krzyzewski suffered an injury to his iliopsoas muscle in his

He will continue his recovery at home during the weekend.
According to Claude T. Moorman III, M.D., Duke's director of

week."

Duke was already scheduled for a two-day break during this
weekend. The Blue Devils return to practice on Monday.
