Kendall Marshall Injury: Carolina PG Game Time Decision

North Carolina Tar Heels point guard Kendall Marshall practiced with the team on Saturday, but heading into Sunday afternoon's game vs. the Kansas Jayhawks, he still remains a game time decision. According to Steve Wieberg of USA Today, the Tar Heels will make the final call on Marshall's status sometime during or after the team's pre-game shootaround.

Marshall was absent for UNC's 73-65 victory over the Ohio Bobcats, and the Tar Heels, a team with several projected first round NBA draft picks, often looked lost on offense. Marshall's replacement Stilman White was not a disaster, but he didn't make a shot from the field and when the game got tight in the second half resorted to swinging the ball around the perimeter. The Tar Heels are talented enough to beat Kansas without Marshall, but it would be hard to say that it's likely.
