Anthony Edwards News
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards put together a solid second half of the season in 2020. His rookie campaign started slow, but he showed promising signs of being a cornerstone piece of this organization. Edwards recently mentioned that his goal for this season was to average two or three steals per game. That is quite a big leap for someone who averaged 1.3 steals per 36 minutes last season. His fantasy value would obviously get significantly better if he improved defensively. It seems unlikely that he'll reach his goal, but the fact he wants to get better on defense is positive for fantasy managers. It sounds like Edwards' value is on the rise heading into the season.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Anthony Edwards (ankle) has left Las Vegas and will be evaluated at the team's facility. The 19-year-old injured his ankle during a recent scrimmage against Team USA last Wednesday. Although any injury is alarming, primarily since Edwards was originally thought to have hurt his knee, he is expected to be fine and ready to go when the season begins in October. He averaged 19.3 points while sporting a 27 percent usage rate during his inaugural year in the league, and he is presumed to garner plenty of interest in fantasy drafts for the 2021-22 campaign, and rightfully so.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Anthony Edwards (ankle) was injured during Wednesday's practice against Team USA. Edwards, who was playing for the Select Team, avoided anything severe and was diagnosed with a sprained ankle, which will keep him out for the rest of the Summer. With training camps starting in just a few short months, the 19-year-old is expected to be ready to go. However, the ailment is still something to keep an eye on moving ahead as the issue may appear again at some point during the 2021-22 campaign, although it isn't something managers should consider during upcoming fantasy drafts.
Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Anthony Edwards scored a game-high 30 points in Sunday's 136-121 win over Dallas, shooting 10-for-21 from the field and 5-for-9 from downtown with a 5-for-5 effort from the line. He added four assists with two blocks and one turnover in 38 minutes. Edwards averaged 19.3 points per game to lead all rookies in scoring, and he added 4.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 steals while shooting 41.7 percent from the field and 32.9 percent from behind the arc. He'll hope that a strong second half of the season helped him to pip LaMelo Ball for the Rookie of the Year Award.
