The Minnesota Timberwolves will be without starting center Nicola Pekovic for 7-10 days due to bursitis in his right ankle.

The injury was suffered 6 minutes into the game against the Chicago Bulls.

With the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns currently sitting in the 7th and 8th seeds and the Memphis Grizzlies surging, every game matters for the 22-22 Wolves.

The bruising center is averaging career highs of 18 points and 9.1 rebounds this season.
