GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Just minutes after missing North Carolina's first-round win over Radford, Ty Lawson promised he'd be "ready" for Saturday's second-round game with LSU here at the Greensboro Coliseum.
"It's not painful anymore, just stiff," Lawson said when asked about his injured right toe. "I'm ready to play."
Lawson dressed but did not participate in Thursday's 101-58 win over Radford.
He has not played since a March 8 win over Duke.
