Marshall: 'Successful surgery. I'm screwed'

By Robbi Pickeral

Well, he's (apparently) typing.

Shortly after North Carolina issued a news release Monday afternoon updating the masses on the status of point guard Kendall Marshall's fractured right wrist, this showed up on the sophomore's Twitter account feed: "Successful surgery. I'm screwed."

Good pun for the ballhandler, who was just coming off the anesthesia a few hours before.

According to the release, Dr. Don Bynum inserted a screw to stabilize the fracture, which occurred Sunday when Marshall fell after a hard foul during the second half of UNC's win against Creighton in the NCAA tournament's Round of 32.

Coach Roy Williams confirmed in the release that no one will know what they really want to know until later in the week: Will the Cousy Award finalist be able to play in the NCAA regional semifinals against Ohio on Friday in St. Louis?

In the meantime, at least we know Marshall has retained his sense of humor.
