MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves say center Ronny Turiaf is out indefinitely with a bruised right knee.
The team said Turiaf had an exam Thursday that revealed the bone bruise. He was injured in the fourth quarter of the Timberwolves' 104-91 win over Indiana on Wednesday night.
The 6-foot-10 center has been starting in place of Nikola Pekovic, who is out with bursitis in his right ankle. He has appeared in 23 games (10 starts) and has averaged 4.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 20.9 minutes.
