The UNC Tar Heels landed Pitt transfer Cam Johnson this offseason thinking he would be a key piece in their attempt to repeat.
Roy Williams and co. were right, as Johnson has added another threat from behind the arc, and a player that has the ability to score from just about anywhere on the court.
At this point, most top teams can't afford to lose key contributors, and that's the case with these Heels. Just moments after Joel Berry left briefly with an ankle injury (he returned), Johnson was taken to the locker room as a Miami big landed awkwardly on his back, putting added pressure on what appeared to be his hamstring.

The play itself looked scary, as that amount of weight landing on Johnson's lower back could provide a more serious injury than just a pulled hammy.

Thankfully, Johnson was able to return to the game and avoid what looked to be a lower back issue at the onset.
