‘Minnesota Emergency’ Edwards injured ankle … out indefinitely

The Minnesota Timberwolves suffered a devastating loss.

According to local sources, Minnesota’s ‘Ant-Man’ Anthony Edwards (Guard, 193cm, 102kg) suffered a right foot injury메이저놀이터.

Edwards was injured in an away game against the Chicago Bulls on the 18th (Korean time). He always started as a starter, but injured his right foot midway through the first quarter. He has since failed to return, and it was final confirmed that he was wearing protective gear.

He has been ruled out indefinitely due to the injury. Currently, the diagnosis is confirmed as an ankle sprain, but it is judged that it is not a light injury by looking at the need for an assistive device. The fact that it is unknown how long it will take to return immediately cannot be overlooked. It is not easy to rule out the possibility of not being able to play the rest of the regular season schedule at this point.

Edwards has been more consistent than anyone else this season. He didn’t miss a single match this time until he got hurt. Above all, he has been more consistent than anyone else, with only two games this season where he has only scored in single digits, including the injured day. While Karl-Anthony Towns was sidelined all season due to injury, he was the de facto main scorer.

He recorded 24.7 points (.461 .371 .767), 5.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.6 steals in 36 minutes per game in 71 games. He has improved every year since advancing to the NBA, and this season he is performing his best career. The average score, which reached an average of 25 points, as well as rebounds, assists, and steals, improved in many ways. He was honored to be selected as an All-Star for the first time in his career.

The departure of Edwards, like no one else, is quite painful. It is because the ranking battle is fierce at the end of the season and Minnesota’s position is unstable. Towns is scheduled to return sometime this month, but no specific schedule has been set yet. If even that is missing, the red light is on for not only the current 8th place in the Western Conference, but also for advancing to the play-in tournament.

Minnesota is 8th in the conference with a record of 35 wins and 36 losses so far this season. They were in close pursuit of the Golden State Warriors, 7th in the conference, but Edwards’ injury put a big brake on them. In addition, they are being chased by the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are in 9th place in the conference, by a half game and by one game by the Los Angeles Lakers, who are in 10th place.
