North Carolina forward John Henson is in uniform and has his sore left wrist taped as he is participating in warmups before Sunday's ACC championship game against Florida State.
Tar Heels spokesman Steve Kirschner says Henson will play ''only in an emergency situation.''
Henson missed the No. 4 Tar Heels' win over North Carolina State in Saturday's semifinals after hurting his wrist in the first half of Friday's win over Maryland.
North Carolina said his status for the championship game will be determined at gametime.
Saturday's game was the first Henson has missed in his three-year career.
The 6-foot-11 Henson, a junior, is averaging 13.8 points and a team-leading 10.1 rebounds per game.
