The father of North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall said Monday on Twitter his son is recovering from surgery on his broken right wrist. Dennis Marshall tweeted Monday afternoon: "Coming off anesthesia... all Kendall keeps asking for is his teammates." He also tweeted: "Get ready to hang another banner" in the Tar Heels' arena. Dennis Marshall didn't immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press and North Carolina said they had no update on Kendall Marshall. Dennis Marshall told CBS.com late Sunday his son would have surgery to insert a screw in his wrist. Kendall Marshall, who is left-handed, was hurt when he was fouled driving to the basket during the second half of Sunday's win against Creighton. His status for Friday's game against Ohio in the round of 16 is unclear. "I just want to be here for my team," Marshall said Sunday night. "It is what it is. We're not saying that I'm not going to play. We're not saying that I'm going to play. Bottom line, it's a fracture and now I have to deal with it." Marshall is a second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick who set the league's single-season assists record. He has been the Tar Heels' most irreplaceable player, leading the fast-paced offense with his see-everything court vision and perfect pitch-ahead passes in transition. The pass-first point guard has also stepped up his offense recently, scoring in double figures the past six games. He had 18 points and 11 assists against Creighton. The Tar Heels lost No. 2 ballhandler Dexter Strickland to a season-ending knee injury in January. If Marshall can't go, the job would fall to freshman Stilman White and versatile senior Justin Watts.
