Posted January 30, 2013 on AP on Fox
North Carolina coach Roy Williams says P.J. Hairston is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Wake Forest. The sophomore suffered a concussion last week at Boston College and missed Saturday's overtime win against Virginia Tech. Williams said Monday that Hairston did some light work Sunday, but later picked up ''a little flu bug'' that had him throwing up and eventually taking IV fluids. Williams said Hairston is ''highly unlikely'' to play Tuesday. Team spokesman Steve Kirschner says Hairston hasn't been cleared to return from the concussion and that the illness is unrelated. The plan was to test Hairston on Monday before he got sick. The team plans to test the guard Tuesday. Williams said sophomore center Desmond Hubert was also sick Sunday with a bug that's ''just going through our team.''

UNC 82 Boston College 70

Speaking for myself, the moment P.J. Hairston was injured I was less concerned about how UNC played and more concerned with them getting the win and getting out of Boston with the hopes Hairston would not miss too much time.
