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 12-18 and looking ahead to games from April 19-25.

Justin Jackson still hasn't been picked back up by a team.a

Harrison Barnes was nearly once again the highest single-game scorer for the Tar Heels this week, dropping in 24 points against the Mavericks. 

Barnes was, however, eclipsed by Coby White, who had a bit of a roller coaster week. On Wednesday, against the Magic, White played a season-low 12 minutes. However, he came back in the Bulls very next game to record his second-highest point total of the season (27). Those 27 points were the highest by a Tar Heel this week. Following Zach LaVine's absence while in COVID protocol, White has temporarily jumped back into the starting lineup. The 27-point outburst was the first game of LaVine's absence.

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.
