NBA Tar Heels: Week 5 Review / Week 6 Preview

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

Happy Thanksgiving week! 

Each Monday during the NBA regular 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 back at games from November 15-21 and looking ahead to games from November 22-28.

  • Ed Davis hadn't played much this season, however following the injury to Cavaliers rookie center Evan Mobley, Davis has now started each of the Cavs' 
  • Coby White is back in action and played in all four of the Bulls games this week. Thankfully the Bulls are off to a hot start (tied for first in the Eastern Conference) and have Lonzo Ball, so can afford the luxury of easing White back into game action. He played 10 minutes in each of the first three games of the week before jumping up to 20 on Sunday.
  • Danny Green didn't play all week as he continues to deal with hamstring issues. 
  • Cole Anthony missed the Magic's last game due to an ankle injury after dropping a week high in scoring for all Tar Heels with 29 last Monday against the Hawks.
  • Cam Johnson got on a scoring roll in the back half of the week finishing with 22 points on Sunday in Phoenix's 126-97 win over Denver.
  • Johnson's Suns were 4-0 this week and now sit at 13-3 overall, the second best record in the NBA behind only the red-hot 15-2 Warriors in the Western Conference. 
  • Nassir Little has played at least 20 minutes in six straight games, the longest such stretch of his career. He is really carving out a nice niche for himself in Portland. 
  • Little and the Trail Blazers were also undefeated this week, going 3-0 to jump above .500 at 9-8 and into seventh place in the Western Conference.

There are currently 11 Tar Heels on NBA rosters, all on full-time contracts.

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.
