DeLaurier will compete with Marques Bolden for Duke's fifth starting spot, ESPN's Jeff Borzello
DeLaurier has a bit of catch-up work to do, as he recently returned to practice after missing two weeks due to a stress reaction. Now ready to get back in the mix, DeLaurier will compete for the center job with another two-year veteran of the program that has posted very similar statistics over that time. The scoring ceiling will be limited for both players with prolific prospects Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett and Cam Reddish also in the starting lineup, but both Bolden and DeLaurier can provide statistically significant contributions in scoring, rebounding and blocks for fantasy owners in ACC-only formats. The first indication of where coach Mike Krzyzewski is leaning will arrive in an Oct. 23 exhibition matchup against Virginia Union.
