Sophomore point guard Ty Lawson will not play against the Hokies due to a
sprained left ankle, an injury he suffered on Feb. 3 against Florida State.
Lawson did not play the final 36 minutes of the game in Tallahassee and was
unable to play against Duke, Clemson and Virginia.
Sophomore power forward Deon Thompson, who has started all 25 games and is
averaging 9.4 points a game, hyper-extended his left knee at Virginia and is
questionable for Saturday's game. He was unable to practice yesterday, but
is scheduled to practice on a limited basis today.
Junior forward Danny Green, the fourth-leading scorer, has the flu and is
unable to practice today.
Junior forward Tyler Hansbrough (infected toe), junior guard Marcus Ginyard
(sprained right ankle, turf toe on left foot) and senior guard Quentin
Thomas (back spasms) are expected to play against Virginia Tech.
