CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina coach Roy Williams says forward James Michael McAdoo is doubtful for the third-ranked Tar Heels' ACC opener Saturday against Boston College. Williams says McAdoo did not practice Friday with a sprained left ankle and says it will be a game-time decision. The 6-foot-9 freshman had a season-high nine rebounds in his last game against Monmouth. He averages 6.4 points and 3.9 rebounds as a top reserve. Williams also says "it's not going to be very long from now" before it's decided whether guard Leslie McDonald will play this season. McDonald has been out after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee over the summer. Williams says McDonald has practiced well and says it "wouldn't be very wise, in my opinion" to wait until February to decide.
