Lawson likely out vs. Radford, Williams says

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Ty Lawson isn't expected to play in North Carolina's NCAA tournament opener.

"There's a huge, huge probability he will not play," coach Roy Williams said here Wednesday afternoon.

Lawson missed the ACC tournament with what is being described as a jammed or sprained big right toe. He said he went through about half of practice Wednesday morning, but it seems Williams either did not see what he wanted or does not think it's worth rushing Lawson back for Radford, because the odds of the ACC Player of the Year competing Thursday are unofficially slim-to-none.

If Lawson is out, Bobby Frasor will start in his place.

The Tar Heels are 1-1 without Lawson this season, 27-3 with him.

"If I don't play Thursday, I'm sure I'll be ready by Saturday," Lawson said. "When it comes down to it, I'm going to play."

Yeah, it sure was a close game!!

 

Radford sucks and this game proved it. LSU is next to get dominated whether Lawson plays or not.

Lawson is out now, but he will be back and ready for our next big game. We have a great supporting class around Lawson to make up for him not being there today. We also have crazy T to do work today.

The DUI and subsequent drop in the draft is the only reason Lawson is back. He wanted to go pro, but the 1st round wasn't a guarantee. I hope he ends up being healthy for the tournament...he's been their best player this year.

i agree.  These guys need to find something else to write about.  Why would Roy Williams even consider playing this guy...

That's what you want to here? Where? Perhaps you actually wanted to HEAR it...or at the very least READ it.
