The 20-year-old rising star suffered a setback after colliding knees with center Day'Ron Sharpe. After the impact, Edwards was unable to put any weight on his leg.

However, he told coach Chris Finch post-game that he expects to be fine, according to various USA media outlets.

The Timberwolves star is averaging 22.2 points, 5 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 1.5 steals over 40 games this season. He is guiding T-Wolves to a 23-23 NBA record and seventh place in the Western Conference.

Without him, Minnesota loses a key shot-creator in the perimeter. Last night Edwards hit 4 treys in 8 attempts, eclipsing 300 career threes. At 20y-171d, Edwards became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 300 three-pointers. He passed Luka Doncic, who sank his 300th career triple on 2/21/20 in Orlando at age 20y-358d.
