Funderburk, Hellems Will Be Game-Time Decisions For Syracuse

February 10, 2020

NC State head coach Kevin Keatts stated today that forwards D.J. Funderburk and Jericole Hellems will be game-time decisions for Tuesday night's matchup against Syracuse.

“Both guys were able to get some reps up yesterday," Keatts stated today on the ACC’s teleconference. "Both guys will be more of a game-time decision.  I'm hoping to have both guys to be able to play tomorrow night."

Hellems missed the game against Miami last week after sustaining an injury during practice.  The 6-foot-7 sophomore is averaging 9.4 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 38% from the field and 31.3% from three-point range.

Funderburk was injured in the second half against Miami, a game where he played just 14 minutes and scored two points.  He played one minute in the second half.

The 6-foot-10 redshirt junior is averaging 12.5 points and 5.9 rebounds this season for the Wolfpack.  He’s shooting 61.3% from the field and 75% from the free throw line.
