The Timberwolves announced Thursday the surgery will be done next week in Charlotte, North Carolina, by foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson. The procedure is called a debridement and repair.
Pekovic played in only 31 games this season, averaging 12.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest. The 6-foot-11, 295-pound Montenegrin has missed the last 12 games after sitting out half of November, all of December and most of January with his ankle injury.
Since signing a five-year, $60 million contract with the Wolves in August 2013, Pekovic has played in just 85 games over these last two seasons.
