Minnesota Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic underwent an MRI Tuesday that revealed bursitis in his right ankle.

Pekovic will be withheld from basketball activities for 7-10 days and will be reevaluated at that time. He will be sidelined indefinitely, the team announced.

Pekovic left Monday night’s game at Chicago at the 6:00 mark of the first quarter and did not return.

The 6-foot-11 Pekovic has appeared in all 44 games this year for the Wolves, averaging career highs in points (18.0 ppg), rebounds (9.1 rpg) and minutes (32.5 mpg).
