Carter left the game with 7:50 left and played only 24 minutes. He has been playing with the injury since before the ACC tournament.
Carter says it stems from a sprained ankle he had earlier in the season, and the only thing he can do for treatment is stretching or ice. But doctors said he was in no danger of further injury if he kept playing on it.
As for the way he felt against Iona, Carter said, "I felt good once the adrenaline started going."
