  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Scores team-high 30 points

    Edwards amassed 30 points (9-20 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 7-7 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one steal across 38 minutes during Thursday's 116-108 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Edwards notched his first 30-point outing since dropping 38 on Dec. 15 against the Nuggets. He continues to stay hot from three and is shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc on 8.8 attempts per game. On the season, the second-year pro is averaging 22.6 points, 5.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds in 35.5 minutes and continues to be one of the bright young stars in the league.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Another all-around performance

    Edwards recorded 24 points (9-16 FG, 6-9 3Pt), six rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal in 29 minutes during Friday's 135-105 victory over the Thunder.

    Since returning from a six-game absence due to COVID-19 protocols, Edwards has scored 20-plus points in four of his last five appearances and has averaged 23.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.6 steals during that stretch. The 2020 No. 1 overall pick also dished out seven assists Friday, tying his season high -- a mark he's reached three times during the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Surpasses 20-point mark once again

    Edwards closed Wednesday's 98-90 win over the Thunder with 22 points (8-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and five steals across 32 minutes.

    Edwards is having a breakout season after enjoying a stellar rookie year and continues to be one of the most productive young players in the league, as he hasn't backed away from leading the team when he has to and is now firmly entrenched as Minnesota's second-best scoring alternative behind Karl-Anthony Towns. He has scored at least 20 points in five of his last six games and is averaging 26.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.5 steals per game in that span.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Leads team to big win

    Edwards notched 28 points (11-17 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 33 minutes during Monday's 122-104 victory over the Clippers.

    Edwards was an efficient and productive scorer in the victory, leading all players with 28 points while knocking down 11 of his 17 field-goal attempts. The second-year star's point total was his highest in his three contests since returning Dec. 31 from a six-game absence due to COVID-19 protocols. Edwards has improved in nearly every statistical category in his second NBA season, posting per-game averages of 22.3 points, 5.6 boards, 3.5 assists, 3.1 three-pointers, 1.5 steals and 0.7 blocks.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Active Sunday

    Edwards (conditioning) is available to play Sunday against the Lakers.

    Edwards is working his way back from health and safety protocols, as the guard logged 32 minutes of action against the Jazz on Friday after missing six straight games due to COVID-19 protocols. The guard will likely see similar minutes versus the Lakers on Sunday. Edwards is averaging 22.2 points and 5.7 rebounds across 29 appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Questionable Sunday

    Edwards is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers due to return to competition reconditioning.

    Edwards played 31 minutes and scored 26 points in his return from the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols during Friday's 120-108 loss to the Jazz, but he apparently felt out of shape, so it's possible he'll need to take a breather Sunday. If that's the case, more minutes could be available for Malik Beasley, Taurean Prince and Minnesota's other wings.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Available Friday

    Edwards (COVID-19 protocols) will be available for Friday's game against the Jazz, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    As expected, Edwards will step on the court for the first time since Dec. 15. Coach Chris Finch noted that he'll have his conditioning watched, so fantasy managers shouldn't necessarily expect 30-plus minutes out of the sophomore. In December, he's averaged 22.4 points, 3.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 35.0 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Expected to play Friday

    Edwards is listed as questionable to play for Friday's game against the Jazz but he did clarify at Thursday's practice that he plans to play, Dane Moore of reports.

    Edwards cleared health and safety protocols Tuesday but required a bit of time to ramp up his activity before he returns to a game. It appears extremely likely he'll be back in the lineup Friday, giving the Timberwolves another dynamic scorer to pair up with Malik Beasley. With D'Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns still in protocols, Edwards should be the primary ball handler until Russell is able to return.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Clears protocols, will need ramp-up

    Edwards officially cleared the NBA's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday, but he's expected to require a ramp-up period prior to returning to game action, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Edwards moving out of protocols is a big step in the right direction, but he won't be available for Tuesday night's contest against the Knicks due to conditioning concerns. The dynamic guard hasn't played since Dec. 15 at Denver, so he figures to need at least a couple of days to get his wind back before being cleared to play in games. With off days coming up Wednesday and Thursday, the hope is that Edwards could be back on the floor for Friday's game at Utah or Sunday's game at the Lakers.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Not ready to return

    Edwards (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) will remain out for Monday's game against the Celtics, Dane Moore of reports.

    Monday marks the 11th day since Edwards entered the health and safety protocols, but the second-year standout apparently hasn't been cleared to end his quarantine. With the Timberwolves concluding a back-to-back set Tuesday against the Knicks, Edwards is more likely to make his return to the lineup for the start of the team's road trip, which kicks off Friday in Utah. That would give him a chance to practice and regain conditioning before seeing game action again.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Remains out Sunday

    Edwards (COVID-19 protocols) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

    Edwards was placed in the league's health and safety protocols Friday and will be sidelined for a second straight game. Malik Beasley, Jaden McDaniels and Josh Okogie should see increased playing time against Dallas.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Placed in COVID-19 protocols

    Edwards was placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols and is expected to miss at least Friday's game against the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Edwards and Taurean Prince will both be sidelined Friday while they await clearance from the protocols. The 20-year-old is set to miss his first game of a breakout sophomore campaign, leaving an opening for Malik Beasley, Jaden McDaniels and Josh Okogie to take on increased roles on the wing.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Shines against Nuggets

    Edwards recorded 38 points (14-21 FG, 10-14 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 124-107 win over the Nuggets.

    The second-year guard delivered one of the best games of his young NBA career, and he carried the team offensively while also looking extremely efficient from beyond the arc. The 38-point output was a season-best mark for the former Georgia standout, but Edwards has been delivering excellent scoring numbers of late. He has notched 18 points or more in eight of his last nine appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Solid output against Portland

    Edwards closed with 24 points (7-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal over 29 minutes during Sunday's 116-111 victory over Portland.

    Edwards went four straight games without clearing the 20-point mark but ended that skid in this one with a strong output in which he also displayed better efficiency when compared to his previous games. Through six games in December, Edwards is averaging 19.8 points per game but shooting just 40.8 percent from the field and 31.1 percent from deep.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Productive yet inefficient night

    Edwards chipped in 13 points (6-17 FG, 1-8 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals over 33 minutes during Friday's 123-106 loss to Cleveland.

    Edwards managed to put up numbers across the board in the loss yet struggled to find the basket on offense. He's been a constant source of production to begin the season, although his shooting, in general, leaves a lot to be desired. An increased role on the offensive end has resulted in Edwards eclipsing 50 percent shooting just three times all season. For those invested in him, punting FG% should have been a consideration from day one.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Starting against Nets

    Edwards (illness) is starting Friday's game against the Nets.

    Edwards was one of several players dealing with a non-COVID illness ahead of Friday's matchup, but he'll be able to play through the issue. He's averaged 21.8 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 39.2 minutes per game across his last five appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Listed probable for Friday

    Edwards (illness) is considered probable for Friday's game against the Nets.

    An illness seems to be making its way through the Wolves' locker room, as Edwards is one of four players who appear on Friday's injury report due to a non-COVID illness. Edwards battled through the same ailment during Wednesday's loss to Washington, which he finished with 25 points, three rebounds, three assists, a block and a steal in 38 minutes. Even if he's still under the weather Friday, the Wolves expect the 2020 No. 1 overall pick to once again play through the illness.
