(MINNEAPOLIS) — Minnesota Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic will miss 7 to 10 days of basketball activities after an MRI revealed he has bursitis in his right ankle, the team announced Tuesday.
The 6-foot-11, 285 pound Pekovic will be re-evaluated after the time off.
Pekovic left Monday’s game versus the Chicago Bulls and did not return. The 28-year-old, who received a five-year, $60 million contract this offseason, is averaging a career-high 18 points and 9.1 rebounds this season.
