Sanjay Lumpkin's debut is on hold. The freshman forward is battling with mononucleosis and will miss time to recover.

Lumpkin, a product of St. Louis Park, Minn., was expected to be a part of Northwestern's rotation, working in at forward. He played in the Wildcats' exhibition against University of Chicago, but was diagnosed days later.

The recovery time from mononucleosis can take anywhere from weeks to months. NU embarks on a stretch of four games in eight days, beginning on Tuesday against Texas Southern.
