CHICAGO (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Anthony Edwards left Friday’s game against the Chicago Bulls because of a sprained right ankle. Edwards was hurt late in the first quarter when he landed awkwardly after jumping while throwing a pass. He stayed down clutching his ankle before being helped to the back. Losing Edwards would be a big blow for the Timberwolves, who came in tied for seventh in the Western Conference and are trying to avoid the play-in. He came into the game averaging 25 points and made his first All-Star team this year.
