At a Friday press conference at the Smith Center, North Carolina men's basketball coach Roy Williams said senior guard Marcus Ginyard will probably play in Saturday's game against the Texas Longhorns at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
"I did expect him to play," Williams said. "Sort of still do. His foot is a lot better."
Ginyard and freshman guard Dexter Strickland both missed Saturday's game with Presbyterian with injuries.
Ginyard, who had an injury to his left foot, participated in 40 to 50 percent of Thursday's practice, Williams said, but sprained a pinky finger in Friday's practice.
"I told him I was so doggone happy that something happend to him besides his foot," Williams said.
Strickland is questionable and was still limping around with a hamstring injury, Williams said.
"If he' still feeling tight like that tomorrow morning, I will not play him," Williams siad. "I would like to watch him warm up and see before I make a decision on him."
