The Timberwolves officially announced that Nikola Pekovic (right ankle) will not play during the 2016-17 season.
Previous reports suggested that it is "highly doubtful" Pekovic will play again in the NBA due to his chronic ankle injuries. Insurance will cover his salary for this season, and the Wolves will likely negotiate a buyout for the $11.6 million he's owed in the final year of his deal in 2017-18. Minnesota signed free agents Cole Aldrich and Jordan Hill this summer, improving their depth despite the loss of both Pekovic and Kevin Garnett. Sep 25 - 10:15 PM
