North Carolina coach Roy Williams is still unsure whether junior forward John Henson will be ready for the Tar Heels' opener in the NCAA tournament Friday. Henson sprained his left wrist in a fall during the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and missed the last two games. He went through about 70 percent of the team's practice Thursday morning in Chapel Hill, then participated in a light workout with his teammates at the Greensboro Coliseum in the afternoon. Trainer Chris Hirth wrapped Henson's wrist and included a protective pad on it just before the workout. Henson said he's improving each day and wants to try to play in top-seeded Tar Heels' game against 16th-seeded Vermont in the Midwest Regional. But Williams says he's ''not convinced'' Henson is ready just yet.
