Duke's Javin DeLaurier Underwent 'Clean-Up' Surgery for Elbow Injury

Duke Blue Devils forward Javin DeLaurier underwent elbow surgery on Wednesday, something Duke officials called a "clean-up" procedure.

"Just a routine thing," Duke associate head coach Jon Scheyer said, according to Steve Wiseman of the News & Observer. "He's doing really well recovering. It wasn't too big a procedure. He's in a good place."

DeLaurier initially declared for the 2019 NBA draft in April, but after testing the waters, he opted to return for his senior season. According to Scheyer, DeLaurier's decision to withdraw from the draft pool was not related to his elbow injury.
