Cassius Stanley missed the Michigan State game with a hamstring injury.

After beating Michigan State Tuesday short-handed, Duke men's basketball will get a key piece back in its ACC opener.

Freshman guard Cassius Stanley is set to start after sitting out the game against the Spartans with a hamstring injury. The California native suffered the injury last week against Winthrop when he awkwardly jumped on a breakaway layup attempt.


Stanley ranks third on the team with 12.9 points per contest and will start alongside Tre Jones, Vernon Carey Jr., Jack White and Matthew Hurt against the Hokies.
