Hurricanes coach Al Golden indicated the team was healthy as they prepare for Florida A&M on Saturday.

“I think we’re OK,’’ Golden said Tuesday. “Kind of holding my breath today because we let them sleep in before they went to class and a lot of them have been going to see the trainer and everything has been thumb’s up. Hopefully we came out of it healthy. There is nothing to report right now for sure though.’’

MUHAMMAD STATUS

Golden was asked about “a report from one of the Canes’ sites that Al-Quadin [ Muhammad] did not play” Monday night “because of a conduct issue with the University that needs to be resolved. Was that an accurate report?’’

Replied Golden: “That was my decision not to play him last night. As I say, with all these instances, if a young man is going to be suspended or is suspended from the University or athletic department it will come from [the sports information office] or it will come from [athletic director] Blake James. … I have a responsibility that we handle everything the right way. It was my decision not to play him. If there’s anything from a suspension standpoint we will release it to you guys.’’
