Kendall Marshall Injury Update: Fractured Wrist, Status Uncertain

This is just terrible news for North Carolina.

Kendall Marshall, who set the ACC single season record for assists this year, and who many college hoops analysts feel is among the handful of most indispensable players to his team in the country, fractured his wrist during today’s North Carolina-Creighton game.

According to Roy Williams, who was interviewed just a short time ago by Tracy Wolfson on CBS, Marshall’s status for next weekend’s Sweet 16 games is unknown.

Here is video of Marshall suffering the injury (hat tip The Big Lead):


Interestingly, the injury happened with more than 10:00 minutes left in the game. Marshall received some treatment during an ensuing timeout and continued to play. He finished with 18 points and 11 assists.


It could be argued that only Draymond Green and Anthony Davis have larger individual presences on title contenders in the country. Unquestionably, Marshall’s loss will be felt in a big way. Fortunately, North Carolina will face either Ohio or South Florida in the Sweet 16. One would think they have enough talent to beat either team, but it will certainly be made much, much more difficult without their floor general.

What do you think? Can North Carolina still contend for a national championship if Kendall Marshall cannot play or is not close to 100%?

Andy Bottoms will have more on the impact of Marshall’s injury when his North Carolina Sweet 16 preview is posted. Stay tuned.
