IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa forward Nicholas Baer, the Big Ten's reigning Sixth Man of the Year, could miss up to a month after breaking his left pinky finger.
    
The Hawkeyes announced on Monday that Baer suffered the injury in practice over the weekend. Baer won't need surgery, but he'll have to sit for 3-to-4 weeks.
    
Baer averaged team highs in rebounding (5.8), steals (1.4) and blocked shots (1.3) per game in 2016-17 and was in position to jump into the starting lineup before he got hurt.
    
Iowa's depth ought to help it overcome an injury to a key player. The Hawkeyes could have a 12-deep rotation when they open play Friday against Chicago State.
