Wolves center Nikola Pekovic will miss the entire 2016-17 season due to recurring right ankle pain according to a Wolves press release.
Pekovic has struggled to stay healthy during his six seasons with the Wolves. He has posted career averages of 12.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. It is likely that the Wolves and Pekovic discuss a buyout of his contract before the season begins. It is also likely that Pekovic may not play another game in the NBA.
