As expected, Pekovic will remain out Wednesday, marking his fifth straight absence as the Wolves head into the All-Star break. Pekovic remains without a timetable for a return, though with more than week off on tap, he would figure to have a decent chance to return when the Wolves resume play Feb. 19 against the Grizzlies.
Pekovic will miss a fourth straight game, meaning Gorgui Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns will again pick up a few extra frontcourt minutes. The 29-year-old should be considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Raptors, though with the All-Star break looming, the Wolves may opt to hold Pekovic out to avoid irritating the injury.
Nikola Pekovic (foot) is doubtful to play in Monday's game against the Pelicans, Jim Eichenhofer of Pelicans.com reports.
Pekovic has missed the last four games, as he continues to recover from a foot injury. Pekovic joins Kevin Garnett (knee) as players likely going to sit out, which means extended frontcourt minutes for the likes of Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng. If Pekovic does indeed sit out, his next opportunity to take the court would be Wednesday versus the Raptors.
Nikola Pekovic (foot) has been ruled out Saturday against the Bulls.
He has missed the last three games with a foot injury, and even prior to the injury he was playing fewer than 15 minutes per game. Developing players like Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng, both of whom are already better two-way players than Pekovic, will be the team's primary focus going forward. His next chance to play will be Monday against the Pelicans.
Nikola Pekovic (foot) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.
If he is officially ruled out, this will be the third game in a row Pekovic will miss due to foot soreness. However, given that Pekovic has been buried in the frontcourt rotation this season, his absence has had little-to-no impact on the minutes distribution.
