Anthony participated in a 5-on-5 contact practice Thursday. Williams said as long as he feels fine Friday and Saturday he will play him on Saturday night when UNC hosts Boston College.
Williams added that if Anthony experiences any pain or soreness between Friday and game time Saturday, he will not play him.
A source close the the #UNC program confirmed to me Cole Anthony went through a full 5-on-5 contact practice yesterday. Which was the last “check point” before he was cleared for game action.— Bridget Condon (@BridgetABC11) January 31, 2020
So the assumption is that he will play for a little tomorrow.@ABC11_WTVD
The Heels are currently 10-10, they went 4-7 without Anthony.
Anthony has missed 11 games over the course of the six weeks since he had surgery.
