DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -Duke guard DeMarcus Nelson will be sidelined at least six weeks after surgery to repair a broken bone in his left wrist.
The surgery, performed Tuesday at Duke University Medical Center, repaired a scaphoid fracture suffered during last week's Pan American Games Trials in Haverford, Pa.
Nelson, who will be a senior, was the Blue Devils' leading scorer and second-leading rebounder last season, when he averaged 14 points and 5.4 rebounds.
Nelson's Duke career has been plagued by injuries, including a ruptured thumb ligament his freshman year and a broken right ankle as a sophomore.
His surgery comes about a week after Duke center Brian Zoubek underwent a procedure to repair a broken bone in his left foot.
