From the Associated Press:
North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson says he plans to play in the Tar Heels’ game against Gonzaga on Friday.
Coach Roy Williams also said he's optimistic that the ACC player of the year will play in the NCAA tournament’s round of 16.
Lawson missed three straight games with a toe injury before helping the top-seeded Tar Heels rally past LSU to win Saturday’s second-round game in the South Region. He experienced some minor swelling in the troublesome right big toe afterward, but nothing like what followed the regular season finale against Duke that forced him to the sideline.
He said he is walking on the toe better. He is constantly icing it and has kept a compression wrap on it to keep the swelling down.
