According to Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500, Wolves center Nikola Pekovic has been working out in Minnesota over the past few weeks, but is “still not ready physically.”
Pek hasn’t been able to overcome his Achilles’ injury suffered back in 2015. Since signing his five-year, $60 million extension in 2013, the big man has only been able to play in a total of 94 games. As the franchise gets younger with Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng, the need for Pek on the Wolves’ roster has diminished entirely.
