MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves will be without center Nikola Pekovic until at least Friday because of bone spurs in his right ankle.

Pekovic missed the final two games of the previous road trip and the home game Sunday against Denver. He will also miss games at Memphis and Charlotte on Tuesday and Wednesday. Pekovic says he hopes to play Friday against Boston.

Pekovic is averaging 13.5 points and 7.4 rebounds this season. He says doctors have told him that the bone spurs are the result of ankle injuries when he was a younger player.

He plans to play as many games as he can over the final month of the season and could need surgery this summer. That decision will be made once the season is over.
