Wolves center Nikola Pekovic to meet with doctor early next week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic said Wednesday he will visit a doctor at the beginning of next week and hopefully be cleared to resume practicing. He is currently sidelined due to a sprained wrist.

"Of course, it's just the beginning of the season, of course it's disappointing," he said, per The Star Tribune. "But it's more disappointing when you try to do something and you just can't. When you're in pain, you make more damage than you can help your team. That's more disappointing that just sitting on the side...It's better to sit, take a few days off, try to heal everything as much as I can and then try to come back and play how I can play."
