The father of North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall says his son is recovering from surgery on his broken right wrist.
Dennis Marshall said on Twitter Monday afternoon: "Coming off anesthesia... all Kendall keeps asking for is his teammates." He also tweeted: "Get ready to hang another banner" in the Tar Heels' arena.
Dennis Marshall didn't immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press and North Carolina said they had no update on Kendall Marshall.
Dennis Marshall told CBS.com late Sunday his son would have surgery to insert a screw in his wrist.
Kendall Marshall was hurt when he was fouled driving to the basket during the second half of Sunday's win against Creighton. His status for Friday's game against Ohio in the round of 16 is unclear.
