Injured Right ankle bursitis Open link
Pekovic went through drills in practice on Thursday for the first time, a positive sign that he is nearing a return, and is being called "day-to-day". Coach Rick Adelman had previously said the hope is that Pek will be able to slowly increase his activity level over the next few days, but Ronny Turiaf's knee injury could move up those plans. President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders said in a radio interview on Friday that Turiaf will be out three weeks and the he "hopes" Pek can play some minutes this weekend, but we're still considering him out for now. Pekovic has been sidelined since Jan. 27 with bursitis in his right ankle and has missed the Wolves' last 10 games. Dante Cunningham will likely move into the starting lineup with Turiaf now also on the shelf.

 Comment11/25/2012 8:27 PMZeroStatic 83% (6)His rebounds have actually increased since Love's return - If you watch their games, Love and Pekovic are the 2 guys boxing out in the paint and Love's presence helps Pek I think.
 Comment11/25/2012 7:08 PMk-rok 0% (5)With Kevin Love back, his numbers might take a hit?
