Flip Saunders said recently that Nikola Pekovic (Achilles) is "still hurt," and wouldn't say whether Pekovic will start ahead of Karl-Anthony Towns.
Kevin Garnett will start in coach Saunders' frontcourt but he's unlikely to play more than 20 minutes per game, and it's not clear who will join him in the starting five. Saunders was asked directly if Towns would start ahead of Pekovic, to which he replied, "Well, Pek is still hurt. And we have another guy who isn’t bad in Gorgui Dieng." Pekovic should go undrafted in standard fantasy leagues due to the uncertainty of his health and the increasing competition in Minnesota's frontcourt. Aug 2 - 6:57 PM
