Duke freshman point guard Kyrie Irving was on the court at the ACC tournament Thursday going through some rehabilitation drills while Duke prepared to face Maryland.

A Duke spokesperson says Irving will not play in the game, but it was the first time fans have seen Irving on the court since he hurt his toe in December. The injury has kept Irving out of action for 23 straight games.

Irving was wearing Duke team shorts and a tank top. He was going through some shuffling and passing drills with a Duke trainer.
