The Minnesota Timberwolves have to hope that Anthony Edwards is healthy enough to compete in this one. After all, the 2022-23 NBA season for the Timberwolves all comes down to the final eight games. And with the emotional boost that the long-anticipated return of Karl-Anthony Towns gave the team in an electrifying win at Target Center, the Minnesota Timberwolves will need more to compete successfully on their upcoming three-game road trip.

And so, the Minnesota Timberwolves begin their three-game road trip by traveling to face the red-hot Golden State Warriors, a team that has picked off the Houston Rockets, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Philadelphia 76ers, and look to climb the ladder in the NBA Western Conference once more by winning today. They will have an emotional boost, as former Warriors Gary Payton, who had been out, appears ready to play for the first time since re-joining the Warriors.

Anthony Edwards’ injury history

Anthony Edwards has played in three NBA seasons for the Minnesota Timberwolves and has been one of the team’s healthiest players so far this season. He refused to sit out after a hard fall against the Milwaukee Bucks and even returned in the fourth quarter of that contest to try to rally the Timberwolves.

Edwards has missed just three games this season due to his current injury and has played in 215 of the possible 228 games over the past three seasons. So it’s safe to say that the Timberwolves have reason to expect Edwards to suit up for this important game.

Will Anthony Edwards pair with Karl-Anthony Towns tonight?

Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns have not played together since November 2022. While there may only be one basketball, neither player is selfish, and both have openly cheered for one another after a positive play. The Warriors are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA and have an undeniable ability to score from three-point range. To counter, the Timberwolves will need lots of points, and that means both Ant-Man and KAT need to play.
