CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson probably will miss his fifth straight game with a sprained left ankle.
Coach Roy Williams said Monday during the Atlantic Coast Conference's weekly media teleconference that Lawson is feeling better but isn't expected to play Wednesday night at rival North Carolina State.
Lawson sprained the ankle Feb. 3 early in an overtime victory at Florida State. He missed a loss to Duke, a double-overtime victory against Clemson, a one-point victory at Virginia and, most recently, a rout of Virginia Tech.
Also, Williams said starter-by-default Quentin Thomas is battling the flu. Thomas has started the past four games in Lawson's absence.
