You can add a couple more Cyclones to the list of players banged up entering the team’s game against Kansas on Tuesday at Hilton Coliseum.

Steve Prohm said junior point guard Nick Weiler-Babb remains “questionable” due to knee tendonitis that has held him out of the Cyclones’ last four games while Hans Brase will definitely be out against the Jayhawks.

“Nick should be out in practice (on Monday),” Prohm said. “Try to go through some things non-contact today and we’ll talk at practice… We haven’t talked yet. I’ve just met with (athletic trainer) Vic (Miller) and I think there’s a lot of positive things going on there, but I need to sit down and visit with him first.

“Hans will be out for sure. He may dress, but I would assume he’s going to be out. He needs a couple more days with his treatment.”

Meanwhile, freshman center Cameron Lard (shoulder) and sophomore forward Solomon Young (knee) will both be non-contact during Monday’s practice but are considered probable for Tuesday night’s matchup.

“Cameron messed his shoulder up the other day but nothing to where he’s not going to play, he’ll just be non-contact today,” Prohm said. “Then Solomon’s got a little knee issue so he’ll be non-contact today.”

“We’ll reevaluate them tomorrow. I don’t see anything about missing game time or anything with those guys. I think it’s just more practice and stuff.”
