We’re slowly but surely nearing the second anniversary of The Day Sports Stood Still, and while I’d like to tell you the world quickly learned from its mistakes and put all of that silliness behind it, basically everyone on the planet knows that is decidedly not the case.

Virtually every league in existence is currently grappling with a fresh wave of health issues that caused the NHL to temporarily pause its season, has led to the cancelation of multiple college football bowl games, and forced NBA teams to play with a roster full of guys a lot of fans have either never heard of or forgot existed in the first place.

However, it turns out some players are running into similar issues.

On Monday, the Minnesota Timberwolves took to the floor without a single active member of their usual starting five, but they still managed to walk away with a 108-103 victory over the Celtics.

Minnesota secured the win with a little bit of help from Greg Monroe, a 31-year-old journeyman who was signed to a 10-day contract before the game and may or may not have updated his Wikipedia page immediately after the contest.

Following the game, Monroe succinctly summed up the struggles NBA teams are grappling with when he gave props to Jaylen Nowell for his performance before admitting he had no clue who his teammate was prior to the showdown.

It didn’t take long for NBA fans to start chiming in with some appropriate reactions.

We live in some truly wild times.
