Duke freshman wing Jayson Tatum is being evaluated for a possible foot injury, according a Duke team spokesman.

DraftExpress’ Jonathan Givony tweeted that Tatum suffered a “stress reaction in his foot” on Tuesday at Duke’s Pro Day. Givony indicated on Twitter the information was from an NBA scout who was at the practice.

Tatum, a highly-touted forward from St. Louis, scored 18 points in Duke’s Blue-White scrimmage on Saturday. He made his first four shots from the field and finished 6-of-11 with two assists, a block and a steal.

The 6-foot-8, 205-pound Tatum is part of Duke’s talented rookie class, which also includes forward Harry Giles. Giles is currently recovering from knee surgery.
