|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.

|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.
|Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic enters the 2014-15 season with a big question mark. The 28-year-old missed 14 of the last 17 games of the season -- including the final nine -- as a result of an ankle injury and has yet to play a full season in the league. He got off to a fast start last season when healthy and was clearly not the same player once he was bothered by a sore ankle. From the start of last 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 in 2014, he only appeared in 23 of Minnesota's final 51 games, averaging 17.4 points, 8.0 rebounds in 26.7 minutes while shooting 56.5 percent from the floor in 23 contests. According to Flip Saunders, Pekovic is fully healthy and ready to go this season. In 2013-14, Pekovic averaged a career-high 17.4 points and added 8.7 boards per game in 54 contests. He also enjoyed arguably his best shooting season in the league, converting 54.0 percent of his field goal attempts, and 74.7 percent of his shots from the charity stripe. He shot a career-best 56.4 percent from the field in 2011-12, but took 246 less shots than he did last season. Fantasy owners know what they're getting with Pekovic when drafting him. It's incredibly difficult to have him healthy for 82 games, but we still like him in the middle rounds come Draft Day.
