Word on da street: Ferguson has broken hand; CONFIRMED, out 3-6 weeks

That's what I keep hearing from several folks that know their stuff. There was a point in the game last night where Ferguson was clearly in pain, grasping his hand. I can't recall if it was his shooting hand or not (I didn't think enough of it at the time to pay attention), but he played through it to the final buzzer.

Losing Ferguson would be a big blow to this squad already short on talent at the guard position. He's a dangerous enough shooter to knock down key threes when open, and he hustles enough on defense to be, if not a shutdown defender, disruptive.

UPDATE: ACC Now and GoPack.com are now reporting it; he'll be out 3-6 weeks with a fracture on his non-shooting hand. If that timetable holds, the earliest he would be available would be the home game against FSU on Jan. 13th; the latest (6 week prognosis) would put it around the NC Central game on Feb. 3rd.
