Timberwolves unsure if Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will play Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) With Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic being bothered by an ankle injury, his status for Monday's game against the Clippers is unclear. The team announced Monday he will warm-up before the game and then decide on his playing status.
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.
Timberwolves C Gorgui Dieng doubles up vs. 76ers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/30/15) Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng scored 14 points on 5 of 10 shooting while racking up 10 rebounds in his team's 103-94 loss to the 76ers Friday.
The double-double was the seventh in 16 January games for Dieng. He also blocked three shots for the third consecutive game while kicking in two assists and two steals in 32 minutes. He'll match up with the Cavaliers Saturday.
|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.
