Marcus Paige has been playing through plantar fasciitis in his right foot, but apparently the injury got worse during the Tar Heels’ win over Louisville on Saturday.
Inside Carolina.com’s Dijana Kunovac has Paige’s take on the injury:
Marcus now, on his foot injury: "it's probably some of the worst pain I've ever been in in my life."

If the preseason ACC Player of the Year has to miss time, it would be a huge blow to North Carolina, which is already thin on the perimeter with freshman Joel Berry dealing with a groin injury. Sophomore Nate Britt is the healthiest option at point guard for the time being. Check back in with Today’s U for further updates on Paige’s status.
