Josh Oglesby out six weeks
Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery said Oglesby broke a bone during practice Wednesday and was set to have surgery Friday.
Oglesby is one of Iowa's top perimeter shooters even though he struggled last season.
Oglesby, a native of Cedar Rapids, made 42 3-pointers last season but shot just 27.4 percent from the field.
Freshman Peter Jok could take Oglesby's place as a shooter off the bench when Iowa opens its season Friday against UNC-Wilmington.
