UNC guard Strickland on crutches

CHAPEL HILL -- North Carolina guard Dexter Strickland was on crutches Wednesday with a bruised right hip after a collision with former Tar Heel Jawad Williams during a pick-up game.

Team spokesman Steve Kirschner said the training staff will keep an eye on the injury, and the player may later have more tests, but that it has been diagnosed as a bruise.

"I was guarding Raymond Felton, and Jawad came over and set a screen,'' Strickland said. "I got over the screen, but Jawad poked his hip out ... I should have had my padded Under Armour on. ... It just got worse as I kept playing, so I went to the trainer's.

"...Hopefully it's not that bad. It hurts, but I'll get through it."
