RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – North Carolina freshman Nassir Little is listed as questionable for the Tar Heels Sweet 16 matchup against Auburn on Friday.

The forward has been suffering from flu-like symptoms and did not practice Wednesday, coach Roy Willaims said. 

Williams said there was “no way” Little would play if the game was Thursday. 

He will also be held out of practice on Thursday. 

UNC and Auburn face off at 7:29 p.m. on TBS.
