    Lightbourne to Miss Up to Four Weeks

    AMES, Iowa – Iowa State women’s basketball player Genesis Lightbourne will be sidelined for approximately four weeks to begin the basketball season, Iowa State head coach Bill Fennelly announced Tuesday.

    Lightbourne, a senior forward, will undergo arthroscopic surgery to her left knee for diagnostic purposes on Friday.

    “I feel badly for Genesis and our team as we are thin to start with in the post,” Fennelly said. “I hope she can return soon and have an impact on our team in her senior year.”

    Lightbourne represents the only returning Cyclone in the post. For her career, she has averaged 1.1 points and 1.2 rebounds per contest. She had the same knee scoped in January after tearing her lateral meniscus.

    At least she should be back by the start of conference play.

    Just four weeks could have her back in time for Iowa.Good chance for the freshmand to realize it really is on their backs during a period when they can start with some success.

    Do our freshman twin towers of Zimmerman and Prins start now?

    With Prins recovering from a stress fracture, I wouldn't be surprised to see Poppens and Zimmerman start the first exhibition (although Prins will most likely play). I assume Prins will start at center when healthy and either Zimmerman or Poppens will be starting at 4. With Lightbourne out, we will likely see Bolte and Schroll play some 4 in a 4-guard set.

    I feel for Genesis, this was her golden opportunity to earn some quality playing time.

    That said, I am anxious to see the frosh out there, Prins and Poppens starting? with Zim getting serious minutes at both spots?

    Here's hoping for a quick recovery for Genesis.

    Via twitter:

    ISUCoachFen Tough day at practice--only 8 healthy bodies--we need to really be committed on and off the floor--exhibition game Sunday!
    Roster has 12. I assume three of the non-healthy are Lightbourne, Prins, and maybe Mosman. I hope anyone else is just ill and not injured.

    Anna participated in a full practice on Sunday, I believe. I don't remember what day I was chatting with her.

    I just now saw Fennelly's tweet.

    Re: Lightbourne to Miss Up to Four Weeks

    I feel bad for Genesis; was looking forward to seeing her on the floor more. She's tough and will bounce back. I've never seen her without a smile on her face, she deserves to have a great senior season.

    Re: Lightbourne to Miss Up to Four Weeks

    Four weeks takes us to around Thanksgiving. If she's ready to play for that tournament, then she'll end up only missing four games -- two of them exhibitions. Of course she'll still need to get back up to game speed.
