Marshall has surgery; status unknown

By Robbi Pickeral

North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall had surgery on his fractured right wrist Monday morning, according to team sources.

Details were not immediately available, and it is still not known whether the sophomore will be available to play Friday in the NCAA Regional semifinals against the No. 13-seed Ohio Bobcats.

The No. 1-seeded Tar Heels were hoping to have an update on the Cousy Award finalist later Monday.

Marshall was diagnosed with a fractured scaphoid bone in his right wrist after top-seeded UNC's 87-73 victory over Creighton on Sunday night. He had 18 points and 11 assists in the victory.

Marshall's father wrote on Twitter on Monday afternoon that his son was coming off the anesthesia, and "all Kendall keeps asking for is his teammates."
