In today's ACC media call, Coach K announced that he will miss the game after members of his family tested positive for COVID-19 and he will remain in quarantine. He has tested negative for the virus.

"I'll be quarantined for the rest of the week and I've had Zooms with my staff to go over Boston College," he said Monday. "Right now they're saying 10 days. Obviously I'm involved as much as I can be.

Krzyzewski was going to miss last Saturday's battle against Florida State before the game was postponed due to a positive case on the Seminoles. Assistant coach Jon Scheyer most likely will stand in as head coach with the Eagles and Blue Devils face off. Coach K's status for Saturday's game against Wake Forest.
