 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina coach Roy Williams says suspended guard P.J. Hairston can practice with the team when it begins workouts Friday.
Williams suspended his leading scorer indefinitely in July after he was charged with speeding and reckless driving. He had also twice been cited by authorities during the offseason while driving a rental vehicle linked to a felon.
In a statement Thursday, Williams said it is Hairston's ``first step toward permanently earning his place back on the roster.'' He also said Hairston will sit out an undetermined number of games.
Hairston said in a statement that he was sorry for actions that brought ``such negative attention'' to the team and his family. He says he knows he ``let a lot of people down.''
UNC's first game is Nov. 8 against Oakland.
