by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Pekovic has been bothered by his right ankle since January, limiting him to just 54 appearances this season.

From the start of the season to Dec. 30, Pekovic averaged 17.5 points. 9.1 boards in 33.8 minutes while shooting 52.3 percent from the field over that span (31 games). Since the start of the calendar year, he's only appeared in 23 of Minnesota's last 49 games, averaging 17.4 points, 8.0 rebounds in 26.7 minutes while shooting 56.5 percent from the floor in 23 contests.

Kevin Martin, Nikola Pekovic still expected to sit
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Timberwolves will likely be missing two injured starters yet again Friday against the Rockets, as Kevin Martin (foot) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are both considered doubtful. Both players have been dealing with these injuries for a while, though Pekovic's battle has been much longer, and we might not see them again this season.
