GREENSBORO, NC (AP) -- Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski says while junior forward Ryan Kelly will dress, he is not expected to play Friday against 15th-seeded Lehigh because of a sprained right foot.

Krzyzewski says Kelly has made "steady progress" but that "it's not good enough to where I would have confidence in putting him in a game. Maybe to shoot a free throw, or a possession or two in an end-of-game situation."

The 6-foot-11, 235-pound Kelly sprained his right foot against North Carolina in the Blue Devils' final regular season game and did not play in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

He's averaging 11.8 points and 5.3 rebounds per game off the bench.
