The UNC basketball program was without sixth man Seth Trimble on Tuesday night, as the sophomore guard was dealing with what is being called an "upper-body injury."

Trimble's presence was certainly missed, given that he is a sparkplug off the bench but also is a strong defensive player as well. The Tar Heels could've used Trimble in the loss to Clemson, as his energy and presence could have helped prevent the upset.

Ahead of Saturday's clash with the Miami Hurricanes, head coach Hubert Davis provided an update on Trimble's status when he spoke to the media.

"He's continuing to improve, and it's gonna be a game-time decision. But every day, he's getting better."

The good news is that Trimble's health is improving. It seems, based on what Davis said to the media, that there is at least a possibility that he can return to action on Saturday.

However, this may be something the UNC basketball program doesn't rush.

Although unconfirmed, Inside Carolina has reported over the last few days that Trimble was accidentally hit in the head by a teammate during a collision in practice on Monday.

If it is a head injury that Trimble is dealing with, don't be surprised if he doesn't suit up once again. The UNC basketball program will look to make sure that he's fully healthy when he returns to the court.

The UNC basketball program will look to bounce back following the loss to Clemson as they travel to Coral Gables to take on the Miami Hurricanes. We will continue to provide the latest injury updates regarding Trimble's status as we inch closer to tip-off.
