NBA Tar Heels: Week 15 Review / Week 16 Preview

Each Monday during the NBA season, All Tar Heels will review the prior week and preview the week ahead for each Tar Heel in the NBA.

Each Monday during the NBA season, All Tar Heels will review the prior week for each Tar Heel in the NBA and preview the week ahead. This week, we are looking at games from March 29-April 4 and looking ahead to games from April 5-11.

Cole Anthony Is unfortunately still out with his rib injury, although he may return to action this week with the Magic coming home from a road trip.

Two different Tar Heels had rather efficient outings in the past week. Justin Jackson scored 15 points in just 12:00 minutes. Cam Johnson was slightly less efficient, although no less impressive, in scoring 17 points in just 17:42.

Harrison Barnes once again had the highest single game point total for the week, dropping 26 on the Lakers. 

Seven of the 12 NBA Heels missed at least one of their team's games this week due to injury or a coach's decision. Coby White was "inactive" for three of the Bulls' four games, but no specific indication was given as to why.

There are currently 12 Tar Heels on NBA rosters, either full time or on a two-way contract.

Here’s a brief look at each Tar Heel in the NBA, what he did in the previous week of games, and a preview of the week ahead.

Note: all times listed are Eastern and PM.
