Nikola Pekovic to retire?

Nikola Pekovic held a press conference in Serbia in which the main subject was the future of Partizan, the club in which he is the president, the past debts and the future of it. However for the first time, Pekovic who has a contract until 2018 with the Minessota Timberwolves, stated publicly that his playing days may be over: “Two years ago I struggle with my injury, I was mentally exhausted. This year I was there for two months, I tried to do everything possible, but there are times when you simply can’t. I can not run without pain”.

Thibodeau said center Nikola Pekovic, trying to come back from the ankle and Achilles pain that has hampered him for three seasons, is not likely to be ready to practice when camp starts Tuesday. “He’s been here for a good chunk of the summer, trying to rehab,” Thibodeau said. “He hasn’t been able to do much on the court. So he’s still having some issues there. At this point I would say it’s unlikely he will practice.”
