The Minnesota Timberwolves just can't catch a break. It's not that there's a slew of bad things happening all at once, it's just that they're in the middle of a very tough road trip - seven games over 13 days - and with two games to go, it's not getting any easier. Those games are against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday.
Pekovic played just 11 minutes in Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors, starting the first and third quarters, but went back to the locker room after only a couple minutes in the second half. He initially thought he'd play against San Antonio, making the trip with the rest of the team, but has since flown back to rehab. It's likely Darko Milicic will get the start.
