MINNEAPOLIS Nikola Pekovic will miss his third consecutive game with a left calf contusion on Monday night against the Jazz.
This will be the 19th game this season that the center has missed with various injuries. Coach Rick Adelman has not confirmed whether the team will simply shut him down for the season with just one game remaining after Monday's.

Last Friday in Utah, Greg Stiemsma started in Pekovic's place. On Saturday, Adelman went small, starting Dante Cunningham.
