DURHAM, N.C. (AP) 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.
