The Minnesota Timberwolves’ season came to an end last night.
The T-Wolves lost to the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 in Denver despite a strong effort that saw them tied at the end of the 3rd quarter.
Unfortunately, their season coming to the end wasn’t the end of the disappointing night for the Timberwolves.
After missing a potential game-tying 3, Anthony Edwards headed straight to the locker room. Along the way to the locker room, it appears he may have gotten himself in trouble.
According to 104.3 The Fan’s Jake Shapiro, Edwards allegedly swung a chair on the way, unintentionally striking 2 female security guards that were working at the game. Edwards has now been cited by Denver police for 2 cases of third -degree assault stemming from the incident.

According to the report, both women injured in the incident, but neither individual’s injuries were serious.
The report adds that according to Colorado law, third-degree assault carries a punishment of up to 18 months in jail and/or a $1000 fine.
The NBA may want to hold a workshop or something for their stars on how to keep themselves out of trouble. Ja Morant spent plenty of time in the headlines for his off-court issues this season.
Even just since the start of the playoffs we’ve seen Draymond Green suspended for stomping on Domantas Sabonis. Dejounte Murray was suspended for an incident with a ref at the end of a game against the Celtics.
Now Edwards has gone and gotten himself in trouble with law enforcement.
Luckily nobody was seriously injured as a result of Anthony Edwards’ outburst, but this incident makes a disappointing ending to the year for the Minnesota Timberwolves even worse.
