Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Pekovic injured, unlikely to return tonight

Posted by: Kent Youngblood under Wolves news Updated: January 27, 2014 - 7:55 PM

Wolves starting center Nikola Pekovic tweaked his right Achilles tendon midway through the first quarter of Monday's game against Chicago at the United Center.

Quickly replaced by Ronny Turiaf, Pekovic is listed as doubtful to return. It is the first injury for Pekovic this season. 

The injury came in a fight for a rebound under the Chicago Bulls' basket. Pekovic left the game with one point and one rebound.

And that means tonight's game will be played largely without either starting center; Bulls center Joakim Noah missed the game with an illness.
