When will Anthony Edwards return?

So far, Edwards has missed the last three games due to a high, including Friday’s practice, due to an illness. Next up on the Timberwolves’ schedule is the Golden State Warriors. Ant’s availability is up in the air, but there is a possibility he could miss the remainder of the regular season.

While the 37-37 Timberwolves are holding steady as the 7th seed in the Western Conference, one lost, and they could very well find themselves out of the playoffs.

In the NBA Playoffs last year, the Minnesota Timberwolves fell to Memphis Grizzlies in the first round. This time around, the Timberwolves have a different team. This is a roster that is far more experienced and complete and will not be so easily ushered out of postseason competition.

Offseason addition All-Star center Rudy Gobert has come in and dominated inside the paint. His presence alone has created space for shooters and advanced their performance. But now he is paired up with his former Utah Jazz teammate, point guard Mike Conley.
