UNC's Travis Wear recovering from ankle sprain
North Carolina coach Roy Williams doesn't sound optimistic about getting freshman Travis Wear back for this weekend's game at Wake Forest.
Williams said Friday that Wear is participating in limited portions of practice and would have to go through a lot more with no effects from his sprained left ankle before he can play again.
Wear was hurt in practice and has missed five straight games.
The injury is one of several to hit the struggling Tar Heels. They have likely lost Ed Davis for the year with a broken left wrist, while Travis' twin brother David is also likely lost for the rest of the year with a left hip injury suffered in a recent practice.
North Carolina (14-14, 3-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) has lost 10 of 12 games.
