Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards wasn’t supposed to be in Minnesota this week, but after suffering an apparent injury while training with Team USA in Las Vegas, he will have to return. Wolves coach Chris Finch said Monday that Edwards would be back in the coming days to be “properly assessed.” In a video that circulated on Twitter last week, Edwards was seen limping out of practice and being helped to the team bus. Although the nature of the injury was unclear, a source told the Star Tribune that it was a “sprain” and confirmed it was not Edwards’ knee.
