CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina coach Roy Williams is recovering after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder.
Williams had surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum, an injury he sustained in early October when he slipped on a wet step at a golf course during a charity event. The surgery lasted 90 minutes and Williams returned home later in the day.
Williams will wear a sling on his left arm for about four weeks and undergo several months of rehabilitation. He is expected to coach Sunday when he goes for his 600th career victory against Nevada.
The 11th-ranked Tar Heels didn't practice Tuesday.
