Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Wisconsin guard Traevon Jackson, who has not played since Jan. 11 due to a broken foot, will be a game-time decision for Thursday's NCAA Tournament game against North Carolina.
The senior was cleared to return to action last week but did not feel comfortable. He was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Jackson was hurt during Wisconsin's surprising loss to Rutgers on Jan. 11. He had started 84 straight games prior to the injury for the Badgers, the top seed in the West Region.
In 17 games this season, Jackson has averaged 9.4 points and 2.9 assists.
The Tar Heels are waiting to find out the status of a key player themselves for Thursday's Sweet 16 matchup. Forward Kennedy Meeks is questionable with a knee injury.
