No. 5 Duke will again be without its top two reserves Monday night when it plays No. 25 Miami Hurricanes.

Javin DeLaurier, a sophomore forward, and Marques Bolden, a sophomore center, will miss their third and fourth straight games respectively with injuries. Neither of them dressed out during warm ups.

DeLaurier has a tight hamstring, while Bolden has an MCL sprain. Associate head coach Jeff Capel III said Saturday that both are progressing, but he did not have a timetable for their return.
