An already pretty thin forward spot just got a little thinner for Penn State basketball. 

Western Michigan transfer Greg Lee will miss some time to start the season with an unspecified injury, per Micah Shrewsberry at his Monday press conference. 

This news comes after Shrewsberry announced at media day a few weeks ago that fellow transfer forward Jevonnie Scott is also unavailable for the early portion of the team's schedule because of some eligibility issues with the NCAA. 

That leaves the forward spot razor-thin, with Seth Lundy occupying more of a wing role and John Harrar and Jalanni White (formerly of Canisius) at the five spot. 

"Greg's a guy who we were really going to count on," Shrewsberry said on Monday. "We also move on to what's next. Who is going to be available is the most important thing. I know Greg's bummed that he won't get a chance to play with us to start off. But the other guys have really stepped up in a big way."

"We've kind of taken on that mantra of 'Win Anyway.' Doesn't matter what the circumstances are, you can still win the game, and that's where our focus is at." 

 Penn State opens up its season on Wednesday against Youngstown State at the Bryce Jordan Center.
