Well it's an ankle and he was able to walk-off. Really good news it wasn't a knee. Looks like he turned it pretty good. It's also a positive that he was able to hobble off on his own.

I'm guessing an ankle sprain - miss a week or two. Hopefully it doesn't linger. :-?

Yeah a sprain

Pekovic said his ankle is "not bad" but wants to see how it is in the morning before he makes any predictions about his return

More Jerry Zgoda (I thought this was funny):

Trainer Gregg Farnam carried crutches out of training room while Pek limped toward bus. "I don't use crutches," big Pek said.

Hopefully, he'll be fine.

We need him more than any other player (other than maybe Kirilenko) right now with Love and Rubio out.

He's a tough guy. He'll be back in less than expected.

He probably snapped them in half with ease. Or bent them in u-shape without breaking a sweat.

Might be irrelevant, but I remember KG rolling his ankle like this a few times and not missing a game. Hopefully Pek can do the same.

Crutches tremble in fear at the sight of Pek.

There is a terrific story about Pek and his past over here, quite long;

He also said, "I didn't hurt nothing, just a lot of pain." :lol: freaking Conan. Got that quote from a Wolves blog but it sounds accurate.
