Lawson, Williams differ on toe outlook

GREENSBORO - North Carolina coach Roy Williams said Thursday that he has no idea whether point guard Ty Lawson will play in a second-round NCAA Tournament game Saturday against Louisiana State.

Lawson has missed three straight games with a jammed right big toe.

“If he’s able to practice (Friday) and do some things in practice, I’ll probably play him,” Williams said. “But if he’s like he was (Wednesday), then I’m not going to play him.”

After watching Thursday’s 101-58 defeat of Radford from the bench, Lawson said he expects to play Saturday.

“It’s feeling better – a lot better,” he said. “I was out there running around, laying the ball up and just doing little things like that. I was actually walking on all five of my toes, so I think it will be a good possibility that I play on Saturday.” - Ken Tysiac and Robbi Pickeral

6 days in a row and counting, Lawson's injury on the front of charlotte.com. Jesus Christ would not get this much attention. I am sure a couple Jack and Cokes would make his foot all good.

Anon at 7:47 is correct. This is an embarassing amount of coverage. How does the Observer's Ombudsman let this happen? My guess is you don't have one. Lawson's DUI did not get remotely the same amount of coverage.

It is now 3 oclock, i need to know if his toe is better.

I seriously cannot get it up for my wife with this lingering in my head.

The bankrupt Observer can pay 5 guys to cover the ACC and I can't get a toe update but once per day?
Disgraceful.
