DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski says the seventh-ranked Blue Devils will be without backup center Marques Bolden for Wednesday night's game at Pittsburgh.

Krzyzewski also said Monday that sixth-man Javin DeLaurier is doubtful for that game with a hamstring injury. Bolden missed the loss at North Carolina State last weekend with a sprained knee.

Neither DeLaurier nor Bolden have started a game this season. The starting five accounted for all but four of the team's points and all but 24 total minutes played in the 96-85 loss to the Wolfpack that dropped Duke (13-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) five spots in the AP Top 25.
