Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic worried about long-term future after injury
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic has been plagued by ankle and foot problems for the last three seasons.
He's about to have Achilles tendon surgery, which ended his 2014-15 season early, and he's beginning to worry about the impact of all of these injuries down the road.
"Of course I am,’" he said. "I’m pretty much worrying about how this is going to affect my life in 10 years. I mean, I’m still thinking about basketball [too]. But when you deal so much with something like this. … It’s a big deal, I think."
Pekovic said that the surgery was "the last thing I could try" to alleviate the pain, per the Star Tribune.

|(4/2/15) Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic will undergo a debridement and repair of his right achilles and miss the remainder of the season, the team announced on Thursday.
Pekovic, 29, only played in 31 games this season, averaging 12.5 points and 7.5 rebounds.
Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic (ankle) out remainder of the season
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(3/30/15) Nikola Pekovic has been out since March 13 with an ankle injury and the Timberwolves announced Monday that the center will not return this season.
Pekovic is currently second on the team this season with 7.5 rebounds per game and was also averaging 12.5 points.
Timberwolves unveil injury report for Monday's game vs. Jazz
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) The Timberwolves continue to be plagued by numerous injuries and released a lengthy injury report for Monday's game against the Jazz.
Forward Anthony Bennett is listed as probable with an ankle injury, which he aggravated during Sunday's loss. Meanwhile, guard Ricky Rubio (ankle) was downgraded to doubtful, while guard Gary Neal (ankle) and centers Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Gorgui Dieng (concussion) are out.
The Timberwolves are 6-point underdogs.
|At this point, it doesn't even make sense to say "If Nikola Pekovic could stay healthy ..." -- he can't. Pekovic has never played more than 62 games in a season, as a result of ongoing ankle issues that only seem to be getting worse. He was once a double-double machine with a rare mixture of strength and touch that made him a beast in the post, but Pekovic managed to shoot just 42.4 percent from the field in 22 games following his return from injury last January -- before another season-ending injury. At this point, Pekovic is probably little more than a situation big man and he doesn't do enough beyond score and grab boards to stand out, so he has little appeal beyond a late-round flier in deeper standard Fantasy scoring leagues.
