Iowa State senior forward Melvin Ejim likely will be out until December after hyperextending his left knee in practice. The Cyclones say that Ejim, a preseason All-Big 12 pick and the league's top rebounder last season, is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. Ejim absence will be a huge blow for Iowa State to overcome during its non-conference schedule.

Iowa State will open its season on Nov. 10 against UNC-Wilmington with just one returning starter, sophomore Georges Niang.
