For the first time since breaking his wrist one week ago, UNC guard Kendall Marshall was back on the practice court, going through a few light drills with the team. Marshall was able to dribble and shoot -- a good sign for Tar Heels fans -- but remains a game-time decision, head coach Roy Williams said. Marshall missed Friday night's game against Ohio while recovering from the injury.
While Marshall did practice, he didn't do anything more than a light workout, Williams said.
"Kendall today [Saturday] went through the dummy stuff," UNC coach Roy Williams said. "It was the first day he's bounced a ball, the first day he caught a ball, the first day he shot a ball."
Williams said Marshall did not participate in any of the Tar Heels' live drills.
It's still anyone's guess whether he plays on Sunday, and Williams will be playing it close to the vest right up until the game. Even if Marshall does play, it's a near certainty he'll be far less than 100 percent. Whether that's effective enough remains to be seen.
