Quinn Cook Aggravates Previously Injured Knee

Quinn Cook may have suffered a setback while recovering from his injured knee according to at least one CBS Sports report following Duke's 91-73.  Duke freshman point guard Quinn Cook has been a bit of a revelation over the last month of the season for the Blue Devils.

There was was string of games where he had 17 assists and 0 turnovers. He has shown the ability to be able to get into the lane and has an offensive game that, while not polished, has to be respected.

But during the Wake Forest game last night Cook at times was beaten badly on defense, something he has been working on getting better at.

However, as the CBS Sports indicated Mike Krzyzewski acknowledged that Cook may have tweaked the knee in his last game.

“He hurt his (right) knee again,” Krzyzewski said in the CBS report. “He did something at Clemson and couldn’t do anything on it Monday. He’s still a little ginger with it.”

Following a three point shot against Wake Forest on Thursday, Cook was noticeably limping and favoring the injured knee. He suffered a partially torn meniscus prior to his senior year at Oak Hill Academy.

At that time Cook rushed back from the injury but it has been a nagging one that force the Duke staff to sit him during the team's overseas trip to China and Dubai this past August.

Krzyzewski said at the time that he wanted Cook to rest and get his surrounding muscles stronger in the hopes of avoiding further injury.

No other additional information is known at the time and no status has been indicated from Duke or any other source. In fact the only mention of it was the linked CBS Sports blurb.

So is he hurt? Will he miss time? Is this just a false alarm generated by a quote taking out of context?

I guess we will al find out Saturday when Florida State comes to town. If Cook were to miss any time, it was be a setback as his play has been a bit of a boon to the Blue Devils, who despite an 18 point victory over Wake Forest, didn't look all that good.
