Theo Pinson played only six minutes in Thursday’s 91-72 win against Virginia Tech before leaving the game with what is being described as a rolled right ankle. But even in that short time, he made his presence felt by bringing an energy to the Tar Heels off the bench, along with five points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal. It’s a contribution, described by coach Roy Williams as “a huge part of the game,” that won’t be available for Saturday’s road game at Miami. UNC has announced that Pinson will be held out of the game while doctors continue to evaluate his injury. No timetable has been set for his return. Pinson missed the 16 games this season while recovering from a broken bone in the same right foot. He suffered this unrelated injury when he landed awkwardly while grabbing a rebound at the 10:14 mark of the first half. The junior wing is averaging 6.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists in the six games he’s played, all Tar Heel wins.
