Duquesne forward Amari Kelly left Duquesne’s game at Saint Louis on Wednesday night with a serious-looking left knee injury.
Kelly was injured after grabbing a rebound with 14:20 to play in the first half. He landed squarely on both of his feet and there was no obvious contact, but Kelly toppled to the floor in a heap, screaming and grabbing his left knee.

Kelly had played two minutes and scored two points on 1-of-1 shooting and three rebounds. Kelly was playing in relief of starter Mike Hughes at the five spot. The Dukes led the Billikens, 34-31 at halftime.
On the season, Kelly, a 6-foot-9 freshman from Long Island, N.Y., has averaged 2.1 points, two rebounds per game and 0.7 blocks per game.
Duquesne has already been playing without fellow forward Austin Rotroff, who is out for the year with a knee injury.
