Duke says senior forward Ryan Kelly is out indefinitely with a right foot injury. Team officials said Wednesday night that there is no timetable for Kelly's return. The 6-foot-11 Kelly was hurt late in the first half of the top-ranked Blue Devils' 68-40 win over Clemson on Tuesday night. He had 12 points in the first half but did not play in the second. Coach Mike Krzyzewski says Kelly ''is playing the best basketball of his career'' and calls it a ''tough setback.'' Kelly averages 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds for Duke (15-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), which plays No. 20 North Carolina State on Saturday.
