CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Marcus Ginyard will not play for third-ranked North Carolina against No. 4 Wake Forest on Sunday night as he continues to struggle with his recovery from preseason foot surgery.
Team spokesman Steve Kirschner said the versatile senior would not dress, which would mark his second straight missed game. Ginyard missed the first 11 games and played sparingly in the next three before sitting out Wednesday's rout of College of Charleston.
Ginyard had surgery in October to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, an injury that was supposed to keep him sidelined for about eight weeks.
On Friday, coach Roy Williams said he was frustrated and concerned by Ginyard's slow recovery. He is the team's top defender and veteran leader.
