The Minnesota Timberwolves appear to have made the leap, sitting at the top of the Western Conference after about a quarter of the 2023-24 season. A big part of that leap is star forward Anthony Edwards, who has increased his production across the board and is also improving on the defensive end. Edwards has missed the last two games with a hip injury he suffered on November 28, but the Timberwolves have kept winning without him. Minnesota hopes to get him back Wednesday against the San Antonio Spurs with a chance to push this winning run to five games in a row. Here’s the latest on Edwards’ status Wednesday.

Anthony Edwards injury updates

Update: As expected, Edwards is suiting up for tonight’s contest. According to head coach Chris Finch, the star forward won’t be on a minutes restriction as he comes back from his hip injury.

Edwards is officially being listed as questionable, but head coach Chris Finch said the forward is on track to play in this game. Edwards did not come back into the game against Oklahoma City where he did suffer the injury, but appeared to be relaxed about his long-term availability. He did miss two games, although the second was likely to give him some extra rest. He’ll look to continue his impressive start to the season against the worst defensive team in the league Wednesday.

If for some reason Edwards does not suit up, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Kyle Anderson would be the players to target in DFS lineups at the small forward position. Karl-Anthony Towns likely takes over as the primary scorer, but Anderson is a high-floor option while Alexander-Walker has the upside with his ability to hit shots from the perimeter at a high clip.
