Kyle Singler Undergoes Knee Surgery
The senior is expected to make a full recovery in time for the team's first practice Oct. 15.
"Kyle had some discomfort in his knee following a very busy summer so we elected to go in and clean it up prior to the start of the season," Duke associate head coach Steve Wojciechowski said. "By all accounts, today's surgery was a success."
Singler, who averaged 17.7 points and 7.0 rebounds a game last season, will likely enter the year as the favorite for ACC player of the year honors as well as national player of the year honors.
Duke, which won its fourth national championship in April, will likely begin the season as the nation's top-ranked team. The Blue Devils open practice Oct. 15 and start the regular season against Princeton Nov. 14 in the opening round of the CBE Classic.
