UNC's Davis Out With Broken Wrist

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina forward Ed Davis will miss at least six weeks with a broken bone in his left wrist.

Team officials said Friday that the Tar Heels' top rebounder and No. 2 scorer broke his wrist Wednesday night when he fell to the court in the second half of a 64-54 loss to Duke.

The sophomore taped his wrist and returned to the game, but the fracture was found Thursday.

The Tar Heels (13-11, 2-7 ACC) have three big men out with injuries. Tyler Zeller has missed a month with a stress fracture in his right foot and Travis Wear is out indefinitely with a sprained left ankle.

Davis averages 13.4 points and 9.6 rebounds, and has blocked 64 shots for a North Carolina team fighting to stay out of the conference cellar.
