CHAPEL HILL — X-rays on North Carolina forward Tyler Hansbrough’s hyperextended left elbow “showed nothing severe enough to show that he can’t play,” coach Roy Williams said. “It’s going to bother him for a while, and that’s it.
Hansbrough hurt his elbow late in the first half of UNC’s win at Virginia on Thursday, but he returned to lead the team with 28 points.
No. 5 UNC plays Miami on Saturday.
