Duquesne Freshman Amari Kelly Will Miss Rest of the Season

Duquesne Freshman Amari Kelly Will Miss Rest of the Season

More bad injury news for the Duquesne basketball team.

This morning while speaking with PSN’s Zachary Weiss, Keith Dambrot announced that freshman forward Amari Kelly will miss the remainder of the season with what he described as a “fairly serious knee injury.”

On Wednesday, 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.

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 is now without a backup center, so Dambrot announced that Kellon Taylor would be returning to the team to help the Dukes with depth. Taylor had been with the team the last couple of years but announced at the start of the year that he would stop playing in order to focus solely on football.

Duquesne’s front court depth has taken a hit as they’ve been playing without freshman Austin Rotroff, who is out for the year with a knee injury.

Duquesne returns to the court tomorrow night for the final game of the regular season as they host Dayton.
