Kyrie Irving warms up, but won't play

By Andy Katz


GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Injured Duke point guard Kyrie Irving created quite a stir an hour before the Blue Devils were to play Maryland in the ACC quarterfinals. In game shorts and an undershirt, the freshman went through shooting and running drills on the Greensboro Coliseum court for the first public viewing of him practicing since he tore a ligament in his right toe on Dec. 4 against Butler.

With his teammates warming up around him, Irving did slide drills, jogged back and forth and took shots off passes from his trainer.
