CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina says guard Marcus Ginyard will miss Saturday night's game against Presbyterian with pain in his left foot.
School officials said Friday that the move is a precaution. Team doctor Tom Brickner says the senior's pain is unrelated to the stress fracture that cost him most of his 2008-09 season, and says he is being evaluated but that "he does not have a fracture."
Ginyard missed all but three games in late December and early January last season and received a medical waiver that granted him a fifth year. He started each of the first nine games for the 11th-ranked Tar Heels (7-2), is averaging 10.4 points and has the team's best shooting percentage from 3-point range.
