Timberwolves injured big man Nikola Pekovic is considering retirement due to mental exhaustion and pain.
“For two years I have struggled with this injury,” Pekovic said at a press conference in Serbia, according to Sportando. “I have been mentally exhausted. This year I went to Minneapolis for two months and I did everything possible to return to the court, but there are times when you simply can’t. I can’t run without pain.”
Pekovic played in just 12 games last season before the pain from ankle and achilles injuries derailed his season, and he’s already been ruled out for the rest of this season.
According to Hoops Rumors, Pekovic is getting paid more than $12 million this season and he’s due to make more than $11 million next season. He’s guaranteed to make the money, but the Wolves could get salary cap relief if Pekovic is ruled medically unable to play.
