Brendan Haywood (UNC '01) played in his first regular season NBA game last night.
Haywood grabbed a team-high eight rebounds in Washington's 94-75 loss at Cleveland. He added two points (1-4 FG) and two blocks in 30 minutes of action.
The Tar Heel grad was activated off the injured list yesterday. He had been sidelined since Oct. 13 after suffering torn ligaments in his left thumb. Haywood averaged 6.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in his two preseason appearances before the injury.
