CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina swingman Marcus Ginyard is sidelined for Monday night's game against Rutgers with a sprained right ankle.

The school said the fifth-year senior was hurt on a drive to the basket during Saturday's practice. He is considered doubtful for the ninth-ranked Tar Heels against Albany on Wednesday night.

Ginyard is the team's third-leading scorer at 11 points per game. He didn't play against Presbyterian on Dec. 12 because of a bruised left foot.
