DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke women's star Chelsea Gray will miss the rest of the season with a dislocated right kneecap.

Coach Joanne P. McCallie disclosed the severity of Gray's injury Tuesday.

The fifth-ranked Blue Devils' point guard was hurt with 8:07 left in the first half of Sunday's game against Wake Forest. She landed awkwardly on her knee while going for a rebound and was fouled by Dearica Hamby.

Gray collapsed to the court, grabbing her right knee, and her screams filled a hushed Cameron Indoor Stadium.

McCallie had said Gray could have returned for the postseason if there were no ligament tears, but an MRI indicated season-ending surgery is necessary.

Gray averages 12.6 points for Duke (24-1, 14-0) and leads the Atlantic Coast Conference with averages of 5.4 assists and 3.6 steals.
