UNC freshman Cole Anthony is out indefinitely for the Tar Heels as he deals with a right knee injury, the team announced

Treatment plans for Anthony will be evaluated and determined over the "next few days," per the team. The Tar Heels' starting guard was not  available for No. 17 UNC's game against Wofford on Sunday

Without Anthony, Carolina lost 68-64 to the Terriers.

Listed at No. 6 in Jeremy Woo's latest NBA Draft Big Board, Anthony has been UNC's leading scorer during the team's 6-3 start. Anthony has averaged 19.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists in his first nine games, behind just Anthony Edwards (19.8) as the second-leading freshman scorer in the country. 

Anthony has recently struggled with consistency following back-to-back games with a 4-15 performance from the field. 

Sophomore Leaky Black also missed UNC's game against Wofford with a sprained right foot and is on a game-to-game basis.
