Anthony Edwards is out indefinitely after suffering an ankle injury
The Minnesota Timberwolves will not be using the services of Anthony Edwards indefinitely. According to head coach Chris Finch, Edwards is out indefinitely after suffering an ankle injury in the first quarter of Friday night’s 139-131 overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls.
Edwards suffered the injury while jumping and throwing a pass, and when he came down, the All-Star guard rolled his ankle and was in significant pain. He needed help getting into the dressing room and when he reappeared on the bench Edwards had his right foot in a boot. Finch said Edwards remains in a boot.
With a calf injury that has kept Karl-Anthony Towns out since late November, an extended Edwards absence would be the worst-case scenario for a Minnesota team caught in the middle of the Western Conference playoff hunt. Wolves are eighth in the West with a 35-36 record. The team is one game behind the Dallas Mavericks for the 6-seed, but they are also just one game ahead of the Utah Jazz, who are currently the first team to emerge from the postseason.
Edwards is averaging 24.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.6 steals in 36 minutes per game.
