‘Strong optimism’ Wolves star could return on Sunday
Have “strong optimism” defending/moving forward Anthony Edwards May return to Minnesota Timberwolves’ roster for Sunday’s game at Golden State, sources say Chris Haynes by TNT and Bleacher Report.
Edwards has missed the past three games – his first absence of the season – after sprains his right ankle last week against the Chicago Bulls. He was injured in the first half when he landed awkwardly and flipped his ankle after a jump pass across the field.
The former No. 1 player scored eight points after eight minutes of the match, a match the Wolves lost without him. They led 2-1 in the next three games to keep a record 37-37, and held the seventh seed at the Western Conference.
While the injury certainly looked bad at the time, Edwards was listed as problematic before being disqualified in the past three competitions, showing a sprain. not serious as it could have been.
A first-time All-Star in 2022-23, Edwards is Minnesota’s top scorer, reaching career-highest averages in points (24.7), rebounds (5.9), assists create (4,4) and steal the ball (1.6) per game. He had a shot record of .461/.371/.767 in 71 games (36.0 minutes).
