Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders said center Nikola Pekovic is finally feeling pain-free after dealing with a sore ankle at the end of the season.

Pekovic is expected to be a staple in the Timberwolves starting lineup for years to come and may become the focal point of the team's offense if they were to lose Kevin Love to free agency this off-season. As long as he enters next season with a full bill of health, he will remain a top 10 fantasy option at the center position. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
