Anthony Edwards has to leave game after rolling ankle

This could be trouble for a Timberwolves team trying to make the playoffs.

Anthony Edwards inadvertently came down on Alex Caruso’s foot and rolled his ankle. He had to be helped off the court.

Edwards was ruled out of the rest of the game. There are no further updates on his condition.

Edwards, in his third NBA season, has become a critical scorer and shot creator for the Timberwolves, averaging 25 points a game this season. His role with the team and the offense have grown since Karl-Anthony Towns went out.

This is a critical game for both teams. At 35-35, the Timberwolves sit as the No.7 seed in the compacted West, but just 1.5 games from falling out of the playoffs entirely. The Bulls sit 12th in the East, but are just half-a-game out of the play-in.
