Duke freshman Dariq Whitehead is on schedule to return to workouts later this month following foot surgery on Aug. 30.
A gem of the Blue Devils’ loaded recruiting class, Whitehead had surgery for a fracture in his right foot and was projected to be back within eight weeks, head coach Jon Scheyer said.
On Wednesday at ACC Media Days, Scheyer said Whitehead is “doing great and able to get on the floor a little bit more.” He could be held out of game action for up to one month.
The reigning McDonald’s All-American Game MVP and Naismith High School Player of the Year, the 6-foot-7 small forward said in September he was targeting the season opener on Nov. 7 against Jacksonville.
