Lawson a game-time decision for LSU

GREENSBORO - North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson will be a game-time decision for Saturday's second-round NCAA Tournament game with Louisiana State, coach Roy Williams said Friday afternoon.

Lawson, has missed the last three games with a jammed right big toe.

Williams said he planned to have Lawson practice some on Friday afternoon, then evaluate the toe afterward and again at 11:30 p.m. If it's decided that Lawson will play, he will start the game, Williams said, rather than starting off on the bench and risking that the toe will stiffen after warm-ups.

Although Lawson cautioned that he hadn't run on the toe yet during Friday's media availability, he sounded hopeful.

"I think I'm probably going to play Saturday," he said.

Game time is 5:45 p.m. – Ken Tysiac

Stomp his toe, right, has to be a Duke fan. You guys are good at forearms to the nose and throwing elbows when on the floor. Can't beat the HEELS fair, so cheat anyway you can...Typical Dookie...

I would rest him another game. LSU is no better than a Southern Conference team. Larry Drew would have been the MVP on the current Tigers team. Carolina by 28-35.

You MIShandled the Lawson-less team in Atlanta..... going thru the motions as if it was business as usual.... and coming home a LOSER....

NO Lawson is like hitting an iceberg.....and your Road Kill exhibition game is now over......

You keep playing Frasor...and Charmin Thompson big minutes...with DAVIS sitting on the bench....and this team will come home a LOSER again....just like 19 of your 20 ncaa tournament teams have likewise come home a LOSER.
