Report: North Carolina Star Guard Marcus Paige Will Not Play vs. UNI Saturday

Marcus Paige's Iowa homecoming will not involve North Carolina's star guard seeing the court. 

Paige, who broke a bone in his right (non-shooting) hand in early November, will not play against Northern Iowa on Saturday, according to CBS' Gary Parrish. 

It was thought by some that Paige, an Iowa native, could heal quickly enough to play in the contest, but he needs more time.

Paige was originally expected to miss three to four weeks; he's been out for a little more than two. He was able to get some shots up prior to North Carolina's game Wednesday night.

North Carolina and UNI are set to tip off at 2 p.m. E.T. Saturday.
