Sophomore center Marques Bolden will not see the court tonight when Duke hosts Elon to open the 2017-18 season.
After an injury-plagued 2016-17 freshman season, Bolden once again finds himself on the sidelines for the Blue Devils.
Just over an hour before Duke hosts Elon at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the program announced that Bolden is out for the game.
Bolden has come down with strep throat.

As a freshman, Bolden appeared in 24 games, playing just over six minutes per game, and averaging 1.5 points and 1.1 rebounds.
The Texas native was the No. 14 overall player and No. 1 center in the class of 2016.
