Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic: Out indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pekovic has been ruled out indefinitely as he continues to recover from surgery on his right Achilles. "Our main concern is for the health of Nikola," Wolves GM Milt Newton said in a press release issued Tuesday. "Our priority is getting him back on the court, playing at a consistent level for a sustained period of time."

Pekovic underwent a debridement and repair of his right Achilles in April 2015, and while he's appeared in 12 games for the Timberwolves this season, he hasn't looked like himself and is clearly still hampered by the injury. The team's press release didn't provide a timetable for Pekovic's return, but he figures to miss several weeks, at the minimum, especially considering the Wolves have no incentive to rush him back as they careen toward a high lottery pick. "While we've made significant strides with Nikola since his surgery, we've come to the conclusion that to ensure he has the best opportunity for sustained success on the court, we need to continue to focus on his rehab and make that the priory," Wolves vice president of sports performance Arnie Kander stated in the release. "We will continue to do that for the foreseeable future with the goal of him returning to the court at the appropriate time."

Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic: Out Monday against Boston
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pekovic (ankle) has been ruled for Monday's game against the Celtics, Timberwolves radio play-by-play announcer Alan Horton reports.

This will be the eighth straight game Pekovic will miss due to the foot injury, and with Kevin Garnett (knee) also ruled out, Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng will once again consume most of the frontcourt minutes. Pekovic's next opportunity to play will arrive Wednesday against the Raptors.

Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic: Will not play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nikola Pekovic (foot) will not play in Saturday's game against the Knicks, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.

Pekovic is dealing with a foot injury and despite the extended time off with the All-Star break, he'll miss his seventh straight game. Kevin Garnett is also expected to sit out with a knee injury, so the Minnesota Timberwolves will likely have to rely on both Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng for increased minutes in the frontcourt.

Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nikola Pekovic (foot) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Memphis.

Even with the extra time off during the All-Star break, Pekovic will not be available for Friday's matchup. Kevin Garnett has also been ruled out, so the Minnesota Timberwolves will likely be relying on Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng to shoulder most of the minutes up front against the Grizzlies.

Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic: Doubtful for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pekovic (foot) is considered doubtful for Friday's matchup with Grizzlies.

Pekovic missed the last five games heading into the All-Star break and is now in danger of his missing his sixth straight after failing to practice Wednesday. If he ends up getting ruled out for Friday's tilt, it doesn't bode well for his chances to play Saturday night against the Knicks, either.
