Our own Eric Black reported on November 26 that Pekovic and Turiaf, who have been battling a right wrist hip injury, respectively, would be out of the lineup.
It appears that both will continue to miss at least a few more games. Jon Krawczynski, who covers the NBA for the Associated Press, tweeted the following on Perkovic and Turiaf.

Pek and Turiaf closer to return but at least another 10 daysWith Turiaf and Pekovic out, the Timberwolves are very thin at center behind Gorgui Dieng , who scored 15 points and hauled in 16 rebounds in 41 minutes against the 76ers.
