The latest on UNC’s injuries and illnesses, via Tar Heels coach Roy Williams on his radio show Monday night:
Starting forward James Michael McAdoo, who hurt his back near the end of Saturday's win over Virginia Tech and sat out Sunday’s practice because of soreness, went through about half of Monday’s practice, Williams said. “And unless it flares up again, I would expect him to play,’’ against Wake Forest on Tuesday, he added.
Starting center Desmond Hubert, who was suffering flu-like symptoms during Sunday’s practice, also went though about half of Monday’s practice. “He didn’t feel great, he was worn out … but again, I would expect him to play,” Williams said.
As for P.J. Hairston, who missed Saturday’s game because of a concussion, also came down with the flu Sunday night: “I really don’t see how P.J. can play.” Williams reiterated that the sophomore was administered an IV on Monday morning, but was only able to watch practice Monday afternoon. His illness is not related to his concussion.
