Iowa State’s Wigginton has cast on left foot

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State sophomore guard Lindell Wigginton, a preseason All-Big 12 selection, showed up to Friday’s game against Missouri with a cast on his left foot and could be out of action for a considerable period of time.

The Cyclones have yet to announce what Wigginton’s injury is or how long they’ll be without him. But the fact that Wigginton was using a scooter to get around isn’t a good sign for either him or the Cyclones.

Wigginton averaged 16.7 points a game last season and nearly declared for the NBA Draft before returning to school. Wigginton had 13 points in Iowa State’s 79-53 win over Alabama State on Tuesday.

Nick Weiler-Babb will likely be Iowa State’s main facilitator in Wigginton’s absence, and freshman Tyrese Haliburton’s playing time should spike considerably.
