Duke knows it needs to get bigger to keep up with the forest of trees over in Chapel Hill. Unfortunately, for the Blue Devils their big lineup just got smaller.

Freshman Mason "Handsome Devil" Plumlee, the athletic, 6-foot-10 center who was on track to possibly start for Coach K, is out indefinitely after suffering a fractured left wrist in practice Wednesday, the school announced.

The injury will not require surgery and will be evaluated weekly by the Duke medical staff.
"We are confident that he will make a full recovery," coach Mike Krzjnml9wski said in a statement.

"Mason is going to be a very good player for us and we look forward to him getting healthy and returning to the court (or I'll run him out of here)."

Plumlee is a McDonald's All-American who averaged 12 points, eight rebounds, three assists and three blocked shots in exhibition wins over Pfeiffer and Findlay.

Duke begins the regular season at 7 p.m. Friday against UNC Greensboro.
