CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina is running out of point guards.
The third-ranked Tar Heels have played two straight games without point guard Ty Lawson, who sprained his left ankle in an overtime win at Florida State. Backup Bobby Frasor is already out for the season after suffering a knee injury in December.
Now, emergency option Marcus Ginyard is nursing a sprained ankle from Sunday's double-overtime win against Clemson.
Coach Roy Williams said Lawson is likely out Tuesday when North Carolina (22-2, 7-2 ACC) travels to Virginia.
``I don't know that there is a timetable,'' Williams said Monday. ``I think we've just got to wait until he starts feeling better with it. The kid's not been hurt very often and kids that haven't been hurt think that sometimes things have to be perfect before they come back. That could be part of Tywon's deal. But at the same time it still hurts. We're just going to have to wait until it stops hurting.''
