Marvin Bagley III will not play Sunday against Georgia Tech after suffering a mild knee sprain he suffered Thursday against North Carolina as a "precautionary measure," according to the team's official Twitter. 

Bagley suffered the injury in the first half of the game against the Tar Heels, according to the tweet, but stayed in the game for 39 minutes. He scored 15 points and pulled down 16 rebounds in the Blue Devils' 82-78 loss Thursday. 

Bagley has come on as a star for the Blue Devils as a freshman, leading the team with 21.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. This is the first game that Duke will play with a different starting lineup all season—it had run out Bagley, Gary Trent Jr., Wendell Carter Jr., Grayson Allen and Trevon Duval in every single game thus far.

Heading into Sunday's 6 p.m. contest against the Yellow Jackets, the Blue Devils (19-5, 7-4) have lost three of their last four games, with two of those losses coming on the road. Georgia Tech (11-13, 4-7 in the ACC) has been reeling, dropping six of its last seven games.
