AMES — Iowa State point guard Lindell Wigginton will be out for an indefinite amount of time due to a strain in his left foot, Iowa State athletic trainer Vic Miller said Friday before the Cyclones’ against Missouri.
Miller said Wigginton’s progress will be checked by the week but his return has no timeline at this point.
Wigginton tested NBA waters in the summer after averaging 16.7 points, 2.8 assists and 3.7 rebounds.
The 6-foot-2 Wigginton had an impressive season debut on Tuesday against Alabama State when he scored 13 points, dished out three assists and pulled down five rebounds in 24 minutes.
Wigginton left the game late in the second half, but Prohm said after the game that it was just a bruised heel and he would need to ice it. But after evaluating it, the injury is a little more serious than that.
With Wigginton’s injury, Iowa State is down to eight scholarship players, half of whom are freshmen and one of the others is a sophomore that averaged just 11 minutes a game. Cam Lard and Zoran Talley are both out due to suspensions and Solomon Young is out after having surgery.
Iowa State has a bit of a gauntlet coming up. The Cyclones play Missouri Friday at 6 p.m., then travel to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational, which starts on Nov. 19. The field features Duke, Arizona, Gonzaga and Illinois, among others.
