|Wolves Nikola Pekovic Out 7-10 Days|
The Timberwolves just can't seem to keep anyone healthy this season. This time big man Nikola Pekovic, one of the team's most consistent players this season, is out for the next 7-10 days after he suffered a right quad contusion.
If this Wolves squad - currently losers of five straight - gets healthy they could make a serious push for the playoffs. Here's hoping they get right.
The Wolves asked for and were granted an injury roster exception by the NBA, given to teams with at least four players out for more than two weeks. Couple that with Lazar Hayward's expired 10-day contract and Kahn has two roster spots he can fill. And he needs to do so.
Center Nikola Pekovic is out for seven to 10 days because of a right quad contusion incurred Thursday against the Clippers. Guard Alexey Shved, who turned his left ankle in the same game, is day-to-day, though he will almost certainly miss Saturday night's game with Houston.
One spot should be filled with 6-7 swingman Mickael Gelabale. The 29-year-old small forward played two seasons with Seattle from 2006 to 2008 and most recently played in Spain.
