Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
Timberwolves' starting center Nikola Pekovic had ankle surgery today (5/15) to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. According to a spokesman from the team, the surgery was a success.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Martin O'Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.
Pekovic had a great sophomore season in the NBA. He averaged career-highs in points (13.9) and rebounds (7.4) and finished second in the NBA in field goal percentage, at .564 (Dwight Howard finished first with .573).
Pek missed 8 games because of the ankle problems. Heading into next season, Pekovic is the likely starting center, pairing up with Kevin Love in the frontcourt.
