North Carolina senior point guard Joel Berry II will likely miss a few games early this season after breaking a bone in his right hand.

The Tar Heels announced the injury earlier this week as they said Berry will likely miss four weeks of action.

At the ACC Media Day on Wednesday, North Carolina head coach Roy Williams revealed to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman that Berry broke his hand after losing in video games to teammate Theo Pinson and a North Carolina manager.

Berry allegedly punched a door after losing and that is why he’s out for the next several weeks. North Carolina opens its season on Nov. 10 against Northern Iowa.

Hopefully we’ll at least find out what game they were playing that caused Berry to get so upset.
