After experiencing dizziness and light-headedness during Wednesday night's loss to Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, N.C., Mike Krzyzewski was back leading practice at Duke on Thursday, team spokesman Matt Plizga told the Associated Press.

The school issued a statement earlier in the day saying Krzyzewski was taken to Duke University Hospital after the game for a precautionary examination. The 67-year-old was sent home in the early-morning hours.

Krzyzewski reportedly took a knee during a timeout in second half of Wednesday's game, and assistant coach SteveĀ Wojciechowski conducted the postgame press conference.

No. 4 Duke (23-7, 12-5 ACC) plays host to No. 14 North Carolina in the regular season finale on Saturday.
