Injuries Mount for North Carolina
Will all these injuries eventually catch up to top-ranked North Carolina?
With Player of the Year favorite Tyler Hansbrough and starting forward Marcus Ginyard already out, another injury has hit the Tar Heels. Freshman center Tyler Zeller is likely to miss the rest of the season after breaking his left wrist in UNC's win over Kentucky last night, according to Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com. The injury occurred when Zeller came down on his hand after missing a dunk.
"It doesn't look good; it doesn't give us a good feeling right now," head coach Roy Williams said. Zeller scored 18 points in the season-opener against Penn, but had just two points against Kentucky in his second start in place of Hansbrough.
