Duke looks likely to get freshman point guard Tre Jones back from his shoulder injury on Saturday when they take on Georgia Tech in Durham.

“Tre is probable for this game,” head coach Mike Krzyzewski said, according to Duke’s official twitter account. “He has really progressed well and hopefully he will be ready to go on Saturday.”

Jones has been MIA since suffering a sprained AC joint in a collision early in Duke’s loss to Syracuse on January 14th. He did not play in wins over Virginia or Pitt, and was initially thought to be out for an extended period of time, but the injury did not end up being as severe as first feared.

On the season, Jones is averaging 8.1 points, 5.7 assists and 3.1 boards.
