Word from the workouts

Individual workouts started at North Carolina on Thursday and the talk was about Jackie Manuel's frame. Coach Matt Doherty said Manuel added 10 pounds of muscle, which made him even quicker off a first step in running and jumping tests. Raymond Felton and Rashad McCants, the two guards who will be rotating in or next to Manuel in the backcourt, were just as consistent in workouts as they were during the summer playing on campus. ... Meanwhile, freshman forward Sean May is on the shelf for a few weeks with tendonitis in his knee and classmate Damion Grant is unavailable for workouts because of a nagging Achilles tendon injury.
