Minnesota Loses Two More to Injuries
The Wolves lost two more players yet again to injury in Thursday’s 90-77, but this time they’re getting a new, healthy body back at least when European swingman Mickael Gelabale signs on Friday.
Nikola Pekovic left the game in the third quarter with a bruised thigh and did not return.
Alexey Shved walked off the floor and straight to the locker room in the game’s final five minutes after spraining his ankle.
It wasn’t immediately known how serious either injury was other than…
Pekovic didn’t appear back at his locker while reporters remained in the locker room after the game. Usually you see him, but Thursday night there was no sign of big Pek and I got the feeling his injury probably is worse than Shved’s and could keep him out in the short term.
