This is a tough blow for the No. 1 Heels. Paige will definitely miss the opening game against Temple and could be out for the entire month of November. The Heels' biggest early season test comes on Dec. 1 against Maryland in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, so it will be interesting to see if Paige is back in the lineup for that game.

Paige has averaged 13.2 points per game and recorded 474 assists through his first three seasons at Carolina. He's missed only one game thus far in his career, so hopefully he recovers quickly.
