CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Roy Williams told reporters on Friday that he is “cautiously optimistic” that junior wing Reggie Bullock will play at Virginia on Sunday after sitting out North Carolina’s win over UNLV due to a mild concussion.

“Reggie was able to go through about half of practice today,” Williams said. “If he doesn’t have any headaches or any recurrence of the symptoms that they’re worried about with the concussion, I would expect him to completely practice tomorrow, and if he does the same thing after that, I would expect him to play on Sunday.“

Williams indicated that Bullock had not done any contact work prior to Friday since suffering the concussion in practice on Dec. 27. Bullock and sophomore forward James Michael McAdoo collided while battling for a long pass running down the floor.

Senior guard Dexter Strickland told reporters that Bullock “looked great” during Friday’s practice.

“He was a little tired running sprints because he hasn’t been running, obviously, but he looked good,” Strickland said. “His shot’s still good and I’m pretty sure he’s looking forward to playing on Sunday.”

Bullock is UNC’s second-leading scorer (13.1) and rebounder (5.7) and leads the ACC with a 47.5 percent shooting percentage (29-of-61) from behind the arc.
