With Summer League and the exciting portion of free agency behind us, I figured now would be as good a time as any to dive into the injury history of one of Timberwolves’ fans most beloved players: Nikola Pekovic.

Moving on from a fan favorite like Ricky Rubio can be tough. What do the Wolves have in Jeff Teague?
