UNC sophomore Tyler Zeller, who suffered a minor concussion and a laceration above his left eye that required five stitches on Saturday, is 50-50 to play at UAB on Tuesday in the quarterfinals of the NIT, coach Roy Williams said.
"I talked to the trainer last night, and they said it’s 50-50, it just depends on how he feels this afternoon, and what he feels like when he wakes up tomorrow: are you having headaches, have you been able to sleep? Those kinds of things,'' Williams said. "Last night, everybody started feeling better about it, but he’s not going to practice today either. He’s going to shoot some, but they have to give him the release and then go from there tomorrow."
The reserve seven-footer has scored 20 points in two NIT games.
