Mike Krzyzewski says Outstanding Duke Freshman guard Kyrie Irving will return to action for the Blue Devils' NCAA Tournament opener against Hampton on Friday.
Irving has been out of the lineup since injuring his toe on December 4th.
Before his injury Irving was averaging 17.4 points and 5.1 assists per game and is considered by many to be a future NBA lottery pick.
Krzyzewski said Irving will play limited minutes off the bench and that "I don't have a set number of minutes," Krzyzewski said.
Duke will take on Hampton Friday at 3:10pm at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte.
