Hansbrough X-rays negative

CHAPEL HILL -- X-rays on North Carolina forward Tyler Hansbrough's hyperextended left elbow "showed nothing severe enough to show that he can't play," coach Roy Williams said. "It's going to bother him for a while, and that's it.

Hansbrough hurt his elbow late in the first half of UNC's win at Virginia on Thursday, but he returned to lead the team with 28 points.

No. 5 UNC plays Miami on Saturday.

Excellent game-watching skills there, sparky. He never hit the floor on the injury.

Can't blame him...shooting 35 free throws a game would make anyone's elbow hurt.
