Kelly undergoes surgery on foot

Posted April 9, 2013

— Duke forward Ryan Kelly underwent surgery on his right foot Tuesday and will be sidelined for approximately 12 weeks.

Kelly suffered the injury in the first half of Duke’s win against Clemson Jan. 8 and missed 13 games before returning against Miami March 2.

“Ryan has been a terrific member of the Duke program throughout his career and has a bright professional future,” said head coach Mike Krzyzewski. “He showed amazing courage playing during the last part of our season leading us to the Elite Eight. With this surgery Ryan is expected to return to 100 percent and pursue his dream of playing in the NBA.”

Kelly returned from the injury late in the year to score a career-high 36 points on 10-of-14 shooting, including 7-of-9 from three-point range, in a 79-76 win over No. 5 Miami. He helped Duke to an NCAA Tournament Elite Eight appearance and 30-6 record.

He earned honorable mention All-ACC despite playing in just five league games. Kelly averaged 12.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.6 blocks per game, while shooting 42.2 percent from three-point range and 81.2 percent from the foul line for the season.

Kelly concluded his career with 949 points, 465 rebounds and 133 blocks in 126 games. He ranks fourth Duke history in career winning percentage with the Blue Devils compiling a 111-15 (.881) record with him on the floor.

    Yeah but Reddick plays hard, works his but off, and can shoot with or without someone guarding him. Randolph can play inside. He wasnt hurt. Look at the guys he was trying to guard, Wells, and the athletes from Ville. Hate on what? He is not as good as you guys want him to be. He looked heavy!! LOL!

    I think alot of people knew he was hurting going into the ACC tournament and definitely during the NCAA tourney. He was definitely a step or two slower than usual, because he couldn't stay in front of anyone on defense. He looked a little heavy, which was expected after not playing for so long. I think an NBA team will give him a shot, probably in the second-round or as a free agent. For a 'big', he can shoot it.

    Haters gone hate players gone play

  • I am not who you think I am Apr 10, 9:18 a.m.

    If Shavlik Randolph can play in the NBA . Ryan will have a solid career if he chooses

  • Tizu Apr 10, 8:06 a.m.

    Reddick was too slow too, remember? He's been a solid player in the NBA. Quickness doesn't account for everything.

  • itsnotmeiswear Apr 10, 7:32 a.m.

    Hope he heals well and quickly. I agree with most of you that he's too slow for the NBA game, but he'll do fine in some foreign league and probably make a very nice living doing what he loves.

  • StunGunn Apr 10, 6:50 a.m.

    Wish him the best for a speedy and full recovery. The timing of his surgery isn't good, but at least he got to finish his senior year, and he'll always have that 36-point game against Miami on senior night. Kelly is smart and he'll do well in whatever path he takes.
