IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa men’s basketball freshman Connor McCaffery underwent a tonsillectomy Wednesday morning at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics as a result of recurrent bouts of throat infections and his recent case of mononucleosis.
McCaffery, who already has missed 10 games of his freshman campaign due to a sprained ankle and mononucleosis, will be out for an indeterminate period of time.
The native of Iowa City has played limited minutes in four nonconference games.
Iowa (8-6, 0-2) returns to action on Friday hosting Northern Illinois (7-5, 0-0) at 7 p.m. (CT) at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Tickets are available online at hawkeyesports.com/tickets.
