Each Monday during the NBA season, All Tar Heels will review the prior week for each Tar Heel in the NBA and preview the week ahead. This week, we are looking at games from April 5-11 and looking ahead to games from April 12-18.

There is just over a month left in the regular season. Final games prior to the play-in tournament will be on May 16. 

Harrison Barnes and Reggie Bullock each turned in 21-point games this week, the highest single game total for the week.

Additionally, Tony Bradley turned in arguably his best performance of the season on Saturday for the Thunder. He totaled 16 points, 14 rebounds, and three blocks in 25 minutes of action.

Unfortunately, last Monday, the Thunder waived Justin Jackson and he is yet to be picked up by another team. Hopefully Jackson will be able to find his way back to the NBA quickly.

Cole Anthony finally returned to action this week after having not played since February 9. Against the Pacers, he finished with eight points, nine rebounds, and five assists in just 25 minutes of action. Anthony seems destined for a triple-double sooner rather than later. Not saying that he is Russell Westbrook, but Anthony's rebounding and playmaking allow him to have that same type of impact.

On the other side of the injury front, Danny Green missed the 76ers most recent game with a left hip injury. He is listed as day-to-day and so shouldn't miss too much time.

Cam Johnson played a season-high 36:54 in the Suns' win over the Jazz this week. Outside of the bubble, it's his career high in minutes played. 

Coby White continues to come off the bench for the Bulls, although he is still routinely playing 25-plus minutes per game.

There are currently 11 Tar Heels on NBA rosters, either full time or on a two-way contract.

Here’s a brief look at each Tar Heel in the NBA, what he did in the previous week of games, and a preview of the week ahead.
