DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -Duke center Brian Zoubek will be sidelined for at least eight weeks after surgery to repair a broken bone in his left foot.
The 7-foot-1 sophomore was injured during a pickup game Monday. He had surgery Tuesday to repair a fifth metatarsal fracture. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Zoubek should be fine when practice opens in the fall.
``It is a setback for Brian,'' Krzyzewski said. ``He worked diligently this summer to add weight to his frame and he did so successfully.''
Zoubek is at 266 pounds after weighing 250 as a freshman, when he averaged 3.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 7.3 minutes per game.
