The injury is a bone bruise in his left knee, according to the school. The 6-foot-8 junior is averaging 12.3 points and 7.4 rebounds.

North Carolina plays four games in the next two weeks, the most notable of which is a game against UCLA in New York on Dec. 19th. They begin ACC play on Dec. 30th, with is a little more than two weeks from today.
