CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson did some conditioning work and shot free throws prior to the team's departure for the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, but his playing status remains in doubt.
School spokesman Steve Kirschner said it's possible that Lawson won't play when the top-seeded Tar Heels face Virginia Tech on Friday. But Kirschner said Lawson's status won't be known until officials see how his swollen right big toe feels before the game.
The speedy junior was honored as the ACC player of the year Tuesday after guiding top-ranked North Carolina to the league's regular-season championship despite an 0-2 start in the conference.
Lawson played through the injury in Sunday's win over Duke. On Tuesday, North Carolina coach Roy Williams said Lawson's toe was badly swollen.
