Iowa Athletics

Iowa freshman Tyler Cook will miss the next three weeks after suffering a fractured finger.

He underwent surgery on the finger on Tuesday.

“After discussions with Tyler and the medical staff, it was determined that surgery was the best treatment for Tyler in terms of proper healing and recovery time,” said McCaffery. “We expect Tyler to make a full recovery and look forward to him rejoining his teammates on the court soon.”

Cook was averaging 13.7 points and 5.3 boards this season. He started the first six games of his college career.
