Two of the three injured Timberwolves starters had positive developments Wednesday -- but their returns likely remain weeks away. Center Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and guard Kevin Martin (wrist) both participated in contract drills Wednesday morning. "They are making a little bit of progress," Wolves coach Flip Saunders said. The Wolves, however, remain cautious with point guard Ricky Rubio (ankle). "He still has some soreness after ... he runs," Saunders said. St. Paul Pioneer Press

Saunders reports Tuesday injured Ricky Rubio is improving daily. He said Rubio ran much better at practice Monday than he did before Saturday’s game at Golden State. Pekovic also has advanced to shooting drills but won’t be cleared to run until he gets a MRI in Minnesota after the team returns home. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Coach Flip Saunders said after Tuesday’s practice that Pekovic is out the rest of the week not because of that troublesome sore ankle but because of a sprained right wrist sustained in Saturday’s loss at Dallas. Saunders said managing Pekovic’s soreness and pain in his ankle/foot is an ongoing issue, but said his absence for games against the Knicks, Spurs and Kings is due to the wrist injury. He said Pekovic will be evaluated early next week. NBCSports.com
