In a text message to The Associated Press yesterday, Marshall’s father Dennis said his son is wearing a removable splint now. Marshall said on Twitter he had shed the cast earlier in the afternoon.
Dennis Marshall said it was still too early to know if his son could play against Ohio on Friday in the NCAA tournament’s round of 16 in St. Louis. He said his son “hasn’t been ruled out, but not cleared to play either.”
(Ahhh...Dads, we can be so delusional...There is NO WAY he’s playing on Friday against Ohio. NO WAY. Unless, of course, he DOES. Who knows? Hey! That’s what Ol' Roy said 4,234,981 times already.)

The talented sophomore’s dad told Inside Carolina,"The coaching staff and trainers and doctors are doing a great job with Kendall in taking every precaution necessary, making sure Kendall will heal in the long run. Everyone is happy with the way it's progressing."
The left-handed Marshall was hurt when he was fouled on a drive against Creighton and had surgery Monday to install a screw in the wrist.
Marshall is averaging about eight points and 10 assists for the top-seeded Tar Heels (31-5) in the Midwest Regional.
