Edwards recorded a team-high 24 points (8-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go with five rebounds, three steals and one assist across 35 minutes Sunday in the Timberwolves' 118-99 loss to the Suns. With Karl-Anthony Towns surprisingly passive (24.9 percent usage rate), Edwards stepped in to lead the Wolves in shot attempts. The results weren't great from a team standpoint, but Edwards' fantasy managers won't complain, so long as they're content with some rough shooting nights. Edwards has now hit the 20-point mark in three straight games, and he should continue to provide plenty of offense for at least the next three weeks with D'Angelo Russell (knee) sidelined and Anthony Edwards two games into a 12-game suspension.
Edwards had 21 points (9-22 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and a steal across 32 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Wizards. Edwards has had to experience the growing pains of being a highly touted rookie for a rebuilding franchise, but there's no question he seems to be up to the challenge. The Georgia product recorded at least 20 points in back-to-back games for just the second time this season and has scored in double digits in three of his last four outings. He is averaging 16.0 points per game since moving to the starting lineup on a permanent basis 17 games ago.
Edwards delivered 21 points (7-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and two steals across 37 minutes during Wednesday's overtime loss against the Bulls. Edwards surpassed the 20-point mark after putting up four straight performances in which he was unable to score more than 12 points as a starter, but shooting woes continue to plague the 2020 draft's No. 1 pick. The Georgia product has scored at least 20 points eight times already, but he's been shooting the ball poorly of late, making just 19 of his 73 field-goal attempts over his past five games -- a brutal 26 percent. On the bright side, he's been chipping in with rebounds, assists and some defensive stats while shooting free throws effectively, and the Wolves project to continue giving him plenty of opportunity to get into a better rhythm from the field.
Edwards compiled 12 points (3-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists and three rebounds across 32 minutes in Sunday's 103-99 loss to the Knicks. Edwards has hit a 'rookie wall' in recent days with three sub-par stat lines. Some growing pains are to be expected for young players who are more accustomed to a shorter season, and Edwards will still be given every opportunity to excel in what's quickly becoming yet another rebuilding year for the Timberwolves.
Edwards collected seven points (3-14 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot in Friday's loss to Toronto. Since scoring a career-high 28 points against the Lakers on Tuesday, Edwards has combined to scored only 15 points on 6-of-29 shooting over his subsequent two contests. Such are the ups and downs of a rookie wingman, even one who was nabbed with the first overall pick in the draft. Edwards is averaging 14.6 points per game in his debut campaign, though his 38.4 field-goal conversion rate leaves plenty of room for improvement.
