UNC’s McDonald says knee '100 percent'

Leslie McDonald’s world changed last summer, when he was playing in the Greater NC Pro Am, a summer league at North Carolina Central. McDonald, the junior guard at North Carolina, suffered a knee injury – a torn ACL – that put an early end to his college season.

Nearly one year later, McDonald said on Wednesday that he has recovered from his injury.

“I am 100 percent back and the knee feels fine,” McDonald said. “I have no problems in the knee.”

Tar Heels recruit Marcus Paige is latest UNC injury

North Carolina’s basketball season is over but the injury list just keeps growing.

Recruit Marcus Paige, predicted by many to take over the Tar Heels playmaker role in 2012-13, has been scratched from a weekend all-star game in Portland, Ore.

Paige, a 6-foot-1 left-hander, suffered a foot injury at some point late last week during practice sessions in Portland.

The extent of the injury isn’t known at this point.

If he comes in to my room tomorrow and says, ‘My wrist feels great,’ and he drops down to the floor and does 10 right handed pushups on his right hand, then I’ll say I’ll probably play his rear end. But I don’t expect that to happen. I mean, the guy can’t brush his teeth right now.
