Tariq Ingraham out for season, Ian DuBose out indefinitely for Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Wake Forest says redshirt freshman Tariq Ingraham is out for the season as he recovers from COVID-19, while graduate transfer Ian DuBose is out indefinitely for medical reasons.

The school's announcement Tuesday didn't discuss additional details for either men's basketball player, citing medical privacy laws.

The Demon Deacons haven't played since Nov. 27 after pausing team activities because of novel coronavirus issues. Dr. Chris Miles, who works with Demon Deacons athletics from the Wake Forest Baptist Health system, said in a statement that Ingraham and DuBose are expected to make full recoveries.

Coach Steve Forbes said both players will remain part of the program while recovering and continuing coursework for the spring.

Athletics spokesman Will Pantages said the team returned to practice Sunday, then voted after Monday's workout to allow players to go home if they choose for Christmas with the plan of returning for practice Saturday.

Wake Forest has had four straight games either postponed or canceled. The Demon Deacons were scheduled to return Dec. 30 against Syracuse, but the Orange announced Monday they were pausing team activities because of contact tracing and that game was postponed, as well.
