|James Michael McAdoo has a sprained ankle.|
McAdoo, who has averaged 6.3 points in 14.5 minutes of playing time per game, suffered a sprained left ankle during practice on Wednesday. McAdoo sustained the injury when, after jumping, he came down on Tyler Zeller’s foot. X-rays that UNC’s medical staff conducted Thursday were negative, a team spokesman said.
McAdoo did not practice on Thursday, Williams said. If McAdoo is unable to play, the Tar Heels will be without a key frontcourt reserve in their ACC opener. McAdoo has averaged 9 points per game in UNC’s past four games.
“It would be a game-time decision and I would think [he is] doubtful,” Williams said.
