Flip Saunders is confident that Nikola Pekovic will be able to remain healthy for the 2014-15 season.
Saunders cited that the team has fitted Pekovic for a new shoe, and he's been working hard with trainers all summer. Saunders also mentioned that he plans to play more Gorgui Dieng in an effort to limit the stretches Pekovic plays. With that being said, Pekovic has never made it through more than 65 games in an NBA season, and he was only able to suit up for 54 games last year. Despite Flip's enthusiasm, Pekovic remains a huge injury risk, and that should be considered before drafting him. Aug 24 - 2:06 PM
