Wolves center Nikola Pekovic had surgery today to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. The team said the surgery was successful.

The operation was performed by Dr. Martin O'Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

Pekovic missed eight games last season because of ankle issues. He averaged career highs in points (13.9) and rebounds (7.4) and was second in the NBA with a .564 field goal percentage.

Pekovic was third in the league's Most Improved Player voting.
