Nikola Pekovic C MIN 1 Day

Pekovic (ankle) was held to 15 minutes on the floor Wednesday. During his truncated outing, Pekovic had six points, five rebounds, and two steals.

Pekovic was a game-time decision after missing Monday's contest with ankle soreness and Flip Saunders was conservative with his deployment of his starting center. The ankle injury has been a recurring problem for Pekovic for some time now, and his workload prior to Saturday's game, where he exited after just 12 minutes, put a lot of strain on it. It looks as though his ankle soreness isn't going away any time soon, so owners would be wise to stash Gorgui Dieng on their roster if he's still available.

Pekovic said he felt better during Wednesday's shootaround, though he made it clear that he'd need to warm up prior to the game before making a final call on his status. He apparently did that without issue and is expected to return to the starting lineup at center, pushing Gorgui Dieng to the bench.

Pekovic missed Monday's game as he continues to battle pain in his ankle, but he apparently intimated that he really hopes to return to the court Wednesday. The decision will ultimately be up to the training staff, however, and that call likely won't be made until after he has a chance to test the ankle out during shootaround. If Pekovic is held out again, Gorgui Dieng will make another start in his place.

Pekovic continues to battle soreness in his right ankle, which kept him out of Monday's shootaround. He was considered questionable throughout the day, but the team has announced he'll be held out, as will starting shooting guard Kevin Martin (illness). Gary Neal will start in place of Martin, while Gorgui Dieng will likely replace Pekovic.

Pekovic (ankle) did not participate in Monday's morning shootaround and will be a game-time decision, Anthony Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Pekovic is very frustrated right now, as he is once again battling pain in the ankle that has given him trouble already this season and last season. He played just two minutes in the second half of Saturday's game, and it would not be surprising if he missed Monday's contest. This makes him an incredibly risky play in weekly leagues, while Gorgui Dieng's value is trending up.

Pekovic played just 92 seconds in the second half Saturday as his ankle was bothering him once again, the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports.

He was laboring in pain with the ankle that has given him so much trouble and the team plans to reevaluate him on Monday. Pekovic finished with just 12 minutes Saturday while Gorgui Dieng played 39 minutes and Adreian Payne saw 25 minutes. Should the T-Wolves opt to give Pekovic some time to rest, Dieng should slot into the starting lineup next to Kevin Garnett.
