Injury Update: Good News / Bad News Edition [UPDATED]

Update: UNC has announced that Travis Wear is out indefinitely with a severely sprained ankle, but there is no fracture.


First, the good news: Tyler Zeller has been cleared to begin shooting and straight-ahead running. The initial prognosis was that he would be out for 4-6 weeks, which would be the middle-to-end of February. Hopefully this is a sign that he is healing as was expected.

And now the bad news: there are multiple reports that Travis Wear injured his ankle in practice yesterday. There is no official word on the severity of the injury.

For those who are keeping track at home, this makes 6 ankle injuries (Ginyard, Strickland, Graves, Watts, Davis, and Wear), 1 foot injury (Zeller), and one hand injury (Drew II). Injuries are a part of sports, but this is an unusually large number for a single season.
