Anthony Edwards logged 28 minutes in Tuesday’s 106-103 win over the Thunder finishing with 28 points (7-16 FG, 3-6 3PT, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one block.
Edwards exited in the third quarter and didn't return, making his availability for Thursday's game against the Jazz unlikely. Fantasy managers should formulate a backup plan in case they have to proceed without one of the key cogs on their roster. The former Georgia Bulldog has been an excellent scoring threat and a top-15 fantasy asset across all formats. He's gone six straight games with 20 or more points, and the Timberwolves offense runs through Ant-Man. So if he's to miss time, it would be a massive blow to the Timberwolves' rotation. The team plays two more games in Week 6, starting with Thursday's matchup against the Jazz. Expect Karl-Anthony Towns to lead the way offensively, with Troy Brown and Shake Milton likely in line for extended run if Edward's is unable to suit up.
