McAdoo questionable for Saturday's game

North Carolina freshman James Michael McAdoo is questionable to play in the the Tar Heels' ACC opener against Boston College on Saturday after spraining his left ankle in practice Wednesday.

X-rays performed on the injury Thursday were negative, a team spokesman wrote in an email. It occurred when McAdoo landed on teammate Tyler Zeller's leg after jumping into the air.

McAdoo, a 6-foot-9 reserve, is averaging 6.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 14.5 minutes for the Tar Heels. If he can't play, expect 6-5 senior Justin Watts and 6-9 freshman Desmond Hubert to get more minutes in the post.
