Solomon Young’s return to the basketball court is being further slowed by a recent injury.
The Iowa State forward underwent surgery Thursday in Philadelphia for a groin injury sustained in practice Oct. 10, athletics spokesperson Matt Shoultz told the Des Moines Register. Iowa State will continue to re-evaluate Young’s condition, but his expected return would be mid- to late December.
Thursday’s update further cements the overall development another blow to an Iowa State roster that has already dealt with its share of troubles this season. Zoran Talley Jr. suffered a broken nose. George Conditt IV and Tyrese Haliburton have dealt with mono. Zion Griffin already underwent knee injury, and Talen Horton-Tucker has dealt with a foot issue.
Young has started 38 games the last two seasons. The junior started 26 games last season before suffering a meniscus tear in his left knee that needed arthroscopic surgery and ended his season. The 6-foot-8, 245-pounder has averaged 5.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 56 career games.
Iowa State is scheduled to begin the season Nov. 6 against Alabama State at Hilton Coliseum.
