Lucius suffered the freak injury while playing on the ice with his younger sister, and he will miss the start of the second half of the Eredivisie season when the campaign resumes in late January.
The 25-year-old will be cursing his ill luck, as he had established himself in the team due to an injury to Mark van Bommel, and will have to battle back to fitness during February.
Rob Wielaert, meanwhile, is unsure where his future lies. The PSV defender is currently on loan at NEC Nijmegen, but he has not been told if he will be wanted in Eindhoven next term.
NEC are expected to make a decision on whether or not to make a permanent bid for his services at the start of March, so Wielaert will have a month to impress the Nijmegen outfit.
Wielaert came through the youth system at PSV, but failed to establish himself and was loaned out to Den Bosch before being taken on by NEC.
