Timberwolves unsure if Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will play Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(11:17 am ET) With Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic being bothered by an ankle injury, his status for Monday's game against the Clippers is unclear, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Pekovic injured his ankle during Saturday's contest and only played 12 minutes. Center Gorgui Dieng would likely see an expanded role if Pekovic cannot play.
The Timberwolves are 4 1/2-point underdogs.

Wolves' Gogui Dieng grabs season-high 18 rebounds in losing effort
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/26/15) Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng grabbed a season-high 18 rebounds in Minnesota's 92-84 loss to the Thunder Monday. Dieng added six points on 3 of 8 shooting from the field.
Dieng reached 20-plus rebounds twice last season, but had yet to reach 18 this year. He added three blocks and two assists on the night.
|If you picked up Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng for your Fantasy team last season, chances are he played a huge role in your success. Dieng struggled for minutes early in the season and only made his presence felt once Nikola Pekovic went down with an ankle injury, missing 14 of the last 17 games of the season. The Senegalese was all over the glass, grabbing 10-plus boards 10 times over that span, including five games of 15-plus rebounds. During his first 42 games played, Dieng averaged 6.5 minutes off the bench, 1.7 points and 2.3 rebounds while shooting 42.6 percent from the field. From March 16 to April 16, Dieng started 15 of Minnesota's 18 games and averaged 11.3 rebounds and 12.0 points on 52.8 percent shooting from the field, and 71.2 percent from the charity stripe. He logged 30.2 minutes per game during that stretch. At 24, the sky is the limit for Dieng, unfortunately -- with Pekovic back healthy -- he will be demoted to a smaller role off the bench. That said, Pekovic has yet to play a full season in the league, so Dieng should be a savvy handcuff option for owners concerned about Pekovic's durability. Target him in the middle-to-late rounds on Draft Day.
