While at a faculty retreat Thursday, North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham offered a brief glimpse into the future for North Carolina star forward P.J. Hairston.

Is Hairston set to play at some point next season? Cunningham took a question from the crowd and answered ...

That'll come not so much as a shock but as welcomed news for North Carolina fans. Hairston is currently indefinitely suspended. On Wednesday, UNC coach Roy Williams expressed fatigue and irk over discussing Hairston so much. Williams suspended Hairston in late July after he was caught speeding, his third run-in with police this offseason

Now the question becomes, when will Williams decide on a timeline for Hairston? How many games will be out? Some believe, nay, they bet P.J.'s back for Kentucky.
