Why it’s important for Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski to have knee replacement surgery right now

After losing eight players from last season and adding six freshmen, Duke Blue Devils basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski was consistently available for the team since his USA Basketball duties ended after 11 years as its coach. The team was scheduled to take a trip to the Dominican Republic this month, but that plan went awry this week with the worsening discomfort Coach K felt in his right knee. He’s having knee replacement surgery this weekend.
