Hansbrough Likely Out at Least Two Weeks

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Carolina men's basketball senior forward Tyler Hansbrough underwent a bone scan Friday on his right shin that confirmed he has a stress reaction, but there is not a fracture, head coach Roy Williams announced.

"Tyler had some tests today that gave us more information," Williams says. "There is a great possibility that we will hold Tyler out of practice for the next two weeks, then re-evaluate his condition at that time.

"Of course we are all disappointed for Tyler and our team, but everybody on the roster has a chance to do a little more and play a little better to help make up for the loss of the national player of the year."

Hansbrough did not miss a single practice his freshman and sophomore seasons and only one his junior year. That came the night after he played 47 minutes in a double overtime win over Clemson, a game in which he played with an infected toe on his right foot.
