Coach Flip Saunders hopes he will be able to keep Nikola Pekovic at 26-27 minutes per game.
"With Gorgui [Dieng] improving and Ronny (Turiaf) being healthy, we can get Pek down to 26, 27 minutes a night," said Saunders. "So he’s not going to have to play 12 minutes at a time. He’s a big guy. If you can’t change his weight, you change his workload so his body doesn’t take such a pounding." Throughout the four-years that Pekovic has been in the league, he's never made it through a full NBA season. And while a decreased workload may help him stay on the court, it's also going to hurt his fantasy value a bit. Pek shouldn't be targeted until the later rounds of drafts in standard leagues.
