Jones was injured Monday night in an overtime loss to Syracuse after crashing into Frank Howard while both went after a loose ball. Jones was in obvious pain, and Duke announced afterward he would be out indefinitely.
Though Jones is unlikely to play against No. 4 Virginia on Saturday, the freshman has not been ruled out just yet because his shoulder has responded well to treatment. Top-ranked Duke (14-2, 3-1 ACC) considers him day-to-day.
"I don't know if it's for this game or the next game, but it's not going to be long term, where it's a month or something,'' Krzyzewski told The Athletic. "He's going to be back.''
Jones has been invaluable as a floor leader for the Blue Devils, averaging 8.1 points, 5.7 assists and just 1 turnover in 29.3 minutes per game.
Duke does expect Cam Reddish to play against visiting Virginia (16-0, 4-0), Krzyzewski told The Athletic. The freshman forward missed the Syracuse game with an illness.
