  • Pecherov gets back into game

    News: Minnesota C Oleksiy Pecherov returned to game action for the first time in four games on Sunday against the Knicks. Pecherov played only two minutes and shot 1 for 2 from the field for two points. He added a steal.
    Analysis: Pecherov has played in 32 games this season but averages just 11.5 minutes per night with 4.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and little else to make Fantasy owners excited. Leave him on waivers in all leagues.
  • Pecherov back to doing something

    News: Timberwolves F/C Oleksiy Pecherov, whose numbers had declined since he moved out of the starting lineup, had a decent performance Wednesday against the Rockets. He scored 12 points and pulled down four boards in 22 minutes, shooting 2 for 4 from 3-point range.
    Analysis: The sad truth is Pecherov probably won't have games much better than this in his current role, and he'll score less than 10 points more often than not. He looked like a low-end sleeper earlier in the year, but he's not worth owning outside of the deepest of Fantasy leagues right now.
  • Pecherov fades back to obscurity

    News: Timberwolves C Oleksiy Pecherov played just over two minutes in Wednesday's game against Portland. He failed to score a point.
    Analysis: Pecherov was a popular waiver wire claim thanks to a few big stat lines earlier this month, but he has played a combined 9 minutes in his last two games and has returned to relative obscurity. It seems this ship has sailed -- at least for now.
  • Pecherov making impact as a starter

    News: The Timberwolves' Oleksiy Pecherov, who continues to start at power forward with Kevin Love sidelined by a broken hand, scored a career-high 24 points in 34 minutes Wednesday against the Celtics. He also had eight rebounds. In three games as a starter, he's averaging 15.0 points and 6.3 rebounds.
    Analysis: Pecherov has had his moments in preseason play, but he has never gotten an opportunity to play big minutes during the regular season until now. The Timberwolves don't have many scorers, so Pecherov could continue to put up decent numbers as long as he remains in the starting lineup. If you have a desperate need at center or power forward, consider giving him a look.
  • Pecherov gets career-high 13 points

    News: Minnesota center Oleksiy Pecherov scored 13 points -- just two shy of his career high -- after Minnesota declined to pick up his contract option for next season earlier in the day. He started and played 19 minutes, and he also added four rebounds.
    Analysis: Pecherov has minimal Fantasy value even though he's starting for the Timberwolves. Ignore him in the majority of leagues until he starts to post double digits on a regular basis.
  • Wolves decline option on Pecherov

    News: The Timberwolves declined their fourth-year option for next season on center Oleksiy Pecherov, who will be a free agent next summer.
    Analysis: President of basketball operations David Kahn says he wanted to save salary cap space, but allowed the possibility of re-signing him. He has no real Fantasy appeal.
  • Pecherov goes 20-10 like Jefferson

    News: Timberwolves C Oleksiy Pecherov, getting to start Thursday's preseason game at Detroit with Al Jefferson sidelined by flu-like symptoms, turned in a Jefferson-like performance with 20 points and 10 rebounds in 32 minutes. "That was good to see," Rambis said. "I'm very happy to see Oleksiy put up those kind of numbers."
    Analysis: Pecherov has played well in preseasons past, but he hasn't gotten much of an opportunity to perform during the regular season. He has a chance to get his most playing time yet, though, with Kevin Love sidelined to open the season. Still, he likely won't do enough with it to matter in Fantasy.
  • Pecherov finally gets some action

    News: Timberwolves C Oleksiy Pecherov played for the first time in the preseason Wednesday against the Bulls after missing the first two exhibition games with a wrist injury. He went scoreless in 19 minutes, shooting 0 for 5 from the field.
    Analysis: Pecherov has yet to do much in the NBA and will likely be one of the last options off the bench for the Timberwolves. Ignore him in Fantasy.
  • Pecherov going to Timberwolves

    News: The Timberwolves agreed to trade guards Randy Foye and Mike Miller to the Washington Wizards for the fifth overall draft pick and three players. Two NBA officials with knowledge of the deal confirmed that the trade had been agreed upon Tuesday night. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been completed. The deal would give Minnesota the fifth and sixth overall selections in Thursday's NBA draft, as well as forwards Etan Thomas, Darius Songaila and Oleksiy Pecherov.
    Analysis: Pecherov averaged just 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds last season. He will not be playing a significant role in Minnesota and is not a recommended target in Fantasy leagues.
