MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves say center Ronny Turiaf is out indefinitely with a bruised right knee.
The team says Turiaf had an exam Thursday that revealed the bone bruise. He was hurt 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.
Turiaf appeared in 23 games, 10 starts, for the Wolves this year. He averaged 4.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 20.9 minutes per game.
