CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina says point guard Joel Berry II won’t play Wednesday against Davidson due to a sprained left ankle.

Berry was hurt early in the second half of Sunday’s win against Radford. The junior is second by averaging 14.8 points for the seventh-ranked Tar Heels, and is questionable for Sunday’s home game against Tennessee.

In addition, the school said in a news release that junior swingman Theo Pinson had X-rays Monday to evaluate his recovery from a broken bone in his right foot that has sidelined him all season.

UNC says the bone “is healing as expected” after surgery Oct. 26 and Pinson is expected to miss 8-12 weeks. He will have a CT scan to determine when he can begin running and jumping.
