North Carolina Tar Heels point guard Marcus Paige broke his hand less than two weeks ago and in the fashion of a true leader, is already back on the practice court and shooting the ball without a cast.
Pictures of Paige practicing before tonight’s game against Wofford were posted to social media and though he won’t play in the game, it is an encouraging sign.
Needless to say, though Paige’s initial timeline for a return wasn’t until December, it seems a pretty safe bet that he’ll be back on the hardwood sooner rather than later and help the Tar Heels look even better than they have during a strong start.
Tip-off tonight is slated for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN3.
