UNC guard Leslie McDonald returns to practice on a limited basis

Bookmark and Share

North Carolina coach Roy Williams said today during his weekly ACC teleconference that junior guard Leslie McDonald, who suffered a torn ACL during a summer league game in July, has been practicing with the Tar Heels on a limited basis.

The UNC medical staff last week released McDonald to practice. Williams said that McDonald participated in some five-on-five work on Friday. The plan, Williams said, is to “gradually increase” McDonald’s work load before deciding on how much – if any – he’ll be able to play this season.

If he doesn’t play this season, McDonald would receive an extra year of eligibility. A decision on his status would be made within the coming weeks, Williams said.
