Minnesota Gophers women's basketball head coach Lindsay Whalen is recovering after undergoing emergency appendectomy surgery.
Whalen, 39, underwent successful surgery Tuesday evening, according to a release from the University of Minnesota. She will not coach Minnesota's game Thursday at Rutgers, instead being replaced by associate head coach Carly Thibault-DuDonis.
Whalen's status will be updated ahead of Sunday's game between the Gophers and Maryland at Williams Arena in Minneapolis.
No further information has been released.
