New Timberwolves Nikola Pekovic and Nemanja Bjelica won't participate in summer league play because of commitments to their national teams, but you can catch three of five games that Wesley Johnson, Lazar Hayward as well as Jonny Flynn, Wayne Ellington and Patrick O'Bryant will play on NBA TV.

NBA TV will show these Wolves games from the Las Vegas Summer League:

July 14, 9 p.m. vs. Sacramento/ It's the first chance to see Wes Johnson and DeMarcus Cousins -- the fourth and fifth players taken in last month's draft -- face each other.

July 16,  9 p.m. vs. Memphis

July 17, 9 p.m. vs. Portland

NBA TV starts its extensive summer league coverage with games from the Orlando league on Monday.

The opening night marquee matchup is a 6 p.m. game featuring Evan Turner and Philadelphia against Derrick Favors and New Jersey.

If you're an absolute summer-league junkie -- I know you're out there from your obsessive blog postings -- you can get all 78 games from Orlando and Las Vegas on Internet broadband for $14.95.

The Wolves team will gather at Target Center on Thursday for three days of workouts before they head to Las Vegas.

Former Gophers Damian Johnson and Lawrence Westbrook will try out during those three days for one or two extra roster spots.
