  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Facing legal action for chair toss

    Edwards has been cited for third-degree assault after allegedly tossing a chair that struck two Nuggets arena employees following Tuesday's Game 5 loss, Bleacher Report reports.

    After the final buzzer, Edwards jogged off the floor and appeared to pick up a chair and swing it to the ground in frustration on his way to the Wolves' locker room. The chair reportedly struck two arena employees, who sustained non-serious injuries but subsequently asked to press charges against the star guard. Edwards was cited by Denver police following Game 5, and at this point it's unclear if he'll face any additional legal action or discipline from the league.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Records double-double in loss

    Gobert registered 16 points (5-6 FG, 6-9 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 40 minutes before fouling out of Tuesday's 112-109 loss to the Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    The duo of Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns was expected to bring an imposing force to Minnesota's frontcourt, but despite the offseason acquisition of Gobert, the team barely broke even this season and crept into the quarterfinals via the Play-In Tournament. Gobert was his usual productive self as a scorer and rebounder, but his 2023 season averages of 13.4 points and 11.6 rebounds were his lowest results since his sophomore season in 2015.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-double in final game

    Towns fouled out of Tuesday's 112-109 loss to the Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals after recording 26 points (9-17 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 38 minutes.

    Although Towns posted four double-doubles out of five games in the quarterfinals, he didn't shoot especially well. He averaged 45.7 percent in the series against the Nuggets, and barely hit the double-double milestone in two of those contests. The 28-year-old's eighth NBA season can be chalked up as a disappointment, as injuries limited him to only 29 games.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Scores team-high 29 points in loss

    Edwards logged 29 points (13-27 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and two blocks in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 112-109 loss to the Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Edwards' final shot hit the rim and missed, which would have sent Game 5 into overtime. Although the dynamo helped the team to an early lead, the Timberwolves were ultimately unable to replicate their inspired performance in Game 4 that resulted in an unlikely win. Edwards became the offensive engine of a team that took risks this season, including trading for Rudy Gobert this offseason and acquiring Mike Conley at the trade deadline. However, the new core had troubles gelling as a cohesive whole, and injuries to Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns during the regular season did not help matters.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Listed as questionable

    Nowell (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 in Denver.

    Nowell has been listed as questionable for each game of the opening-round series so far, but he's yet to miss a contest. Over the first four matchups, he's averaged 3.5 points and 1.3 rebounds in 13.5 minutes. He played just four minutes during the Game 4 win.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Ruled out for Game 5

    Anderson (eye) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Nuggets.

    Anderson exited Sunday's matchup against Denver due to a left eye/facial contusion, and the injury will force him to miss at least one additional game. Taurean Prince and Austin Rivers could see a few additional minutes Tuesday as the Timberwolves attempt to avoid elimination.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Churns out double-double

    Gobert closed with 14 points (7-14 FG), 15 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 39 minutes during Sunday's 114-108 overtime victory over the Nuggets in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Gobert logged almost 40 minutes in the overtime win, recording his second-straight double-double against Denver. It's not easy to pull down 15 rebounds against Nikola Jokic, but Gobert actually recorded four more rebounds than the MVP candidate and was pivotal in keeping the Timberwolves' playoff hopes alive.
