In a contest that's looking to be a blowout, it's not all smiles for the Blue Devils Tuesday night.

Duke point guard Tre Jones took an elbow to the face with seven minutes left in the first half against Central Arkansas. After missing a three, Jones tried to corral his own rebound before getting hit. Jones fell to the floor, where he remained for about a minute before he walked to the end of the bench. There, a trainer tended to him, but he did not not return to the game for the rest of the half.

To start the second half, Jones came out of the locker room with some of the coaching staff after the rest of the team had taken the floor. He did not participate in warmups, watching from beneath the rim, and was ruled out of the contest, per the ACC Network broadcast.

Before leaving the game, Jones scored seven points and dished out two assists.
