While Bolden is out for the ACC tournament and likely the first weekend of the NCAA tournament, Duke expects to have 6-7 junior Zion Williamson back from the sprained knee that's sidelined him since February 20.

Duke listed Williamson as day-to-day, but he ended up missing the remainder of the regular season.

The 6-foot-11 Bolden averages 5.8 points, 1.8 blocks and 4.7 rebounds for the third-seeded Blue Devils (26-5).

Williamson is expected to return for the ACC Tournament and he was named the ACC Player of the Year on Monday.
