UNC forward James Michael McAdoo is 'doubtful' for Saturday's ACC opener against Boston College

James Michael McAdoo has a sprained ankle.
CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina coach Roy Williams said Friday that freshman forward James Michael McAdoo is “doubtful” for the Tar Heels’ ACC opener on Saturday against Boston College (2:30 p.m., WBTV channel 3).

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.

Get Desmond Hubert some minutes; rest JMM until he's 100%.

I think that it was correct that the UNC did not let him play and that they preferred to wait for his complete recovery than having a relapse
