Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards had to be helped off the floor in their showdown against the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday following a non-contact injury.

Late in the second quarter, Edwards appeared to twist his ankle while attempting to shake off his defender. He fell to the floor and quickly held his left ankle in pain. He stayed lying on the floor for some time before needing assistance to get up and off the court.

As Edwards walked off the court, Timberwolves fans in attendance showed their support for the All-Star guard and chanted “MVP” to raise his spirits up. Edwards clearly couldn't put any weight on his left foot as he headed to the locker room.

Fortunately for the Wolves, Anthony Edwards was able to return in the third quarter. The team didn't provide an update on his injury as well, so the hope is it's not a serious issue and won't bother the superstar scorer.

With just a few games left on the season and the Timberwolves fighting for a postseason spot, the team couldn't really afford to lose their best player at this crucial juncture. Entering Tuesday's contest, Edwards was averaging 26.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.2 assists on 46/48/83 shooting splits. He's also making 1.2 steals per game.

Prior to his exit in the second quarter, Edwards had 18 points after dropping 12 in the opening period.

While Edwards was able to go back, his condition and health status moving forward is definitely something to monitor in the next few games for Minnesota.
