CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -All-American Tyler Hansbrough was listed as probable for North Carolina's next game following a concussion during a victory at Rutgers.
The school said Monday that Hansbrough was able to fly back with the team, but it was unclear whether he would have lingering effects.
He went through a light weight workout and will be examined the next two days before Wednesday's game against Nicholls State, school spokesman Steve Kirschner said. It will be North Carolina's first home game in nearly a month.
Hansbrough was injured Sunday night while taking a charge from Earl Pettis with 5:47 left in the Tar Heels' 93-71 victory. Hansbrough went down in a sitting position and hit the back of his head on a television cameraman's knee and then the bottom of the basket support.
