His season over, with surgery looming, Wolves center Nikola Pekovic acknowledged he is concerned about his future, both on and off the basketball court.

“Of course I am,’’ he said. “I’m pretty much worrying about how this is going to affect my life in 10 years. I mean, I’m still thinking about basketball [too]. But when you deal so much with something like this. … It’s a big deal, I think.’’

Pekovic has spent so much time fighting foot and ankle pain. Wednesday, in what Pekovic described as “the last thing I can try,” he will undergo surgery to remove damaged tissue and repair his right Achilles’ tendon.

Dr. Richard Anderson will do the surgery in Charlotte, N.C., in an attempt to finally ease the pain that [has] affected Pekovic for years.
