CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson will miss his sixth straight game Sunday night when the third-ranked Tar Heels face Wake Forest.
Lawson has been sidelined since he sprained his left ankle against Florida State on Feb. 3. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Quentin Thomas, who recently played through a case of the flu.
After Sunday, North Carolina will have three ACC games left, including two on the road.
UNC spokesman Steve Kirschner said Deon Thompson would play for the Tar Heels against the Demon Deacons. He hyperextended his left knee in a win at Virginia on Feb. 12.
