Zion Williamson is clearly 100-percent, after laying waste to the ACC Tournament. Duke didn't finish that run at full health though.

Beyond the four terrific Duke freshmen, forward Marques Bolden may be the next most important player for the Blue Devils. He's been solid, averaging 5.8 points and 4.7 rebounds in about 20 minutes per game.

In the ACC regular season finale against North Carolina, he played just three minutes before leaving with an injury after a nasty looking spill. He sat out the team's entire ACC Tournament run.

Ahead of tomorrow's Duke-North Dakota State game, the Blue Devils announces some good news on Marques Bolden's status.

Per Dan Wolken, the team has announced that Bolden is back and good to go.

Duke isn't at full strength though. Jack White will be out with a hamstring injury.

White's role has been up-and-down, as he's been a very streaky shooter for Duke this season. He played in the team's three ACC Tournament games, against Syracuse, North Carolina, and Florida State, but was held scoreless in 27 total minutes.

On the season, White is averaging 4.4 points and five rebounds in 21.5 minutes per game. Still, Duke will want all of its guys as we enter the Big Dance.

Duke and NDSU face off at 7:10 p.m. ET on Friday.
