Minnesota Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards cited for assault after swinging chair at employees following playoff loss

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards has been cited for third-degree assault after allegedly swinging a chair and hitting two female employees following the team’s loss to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.

The incident happened as Edwards was heading towards the Wolves’ locker room after the game, and the employees’ injuries were not serious. The Wolves said they are aware of the alleged incident and are gathering more information.

Edwards is scheduled for a court date in Denver on June 9, and if convicted, he faces possible jail time and a fine of up to $1,000. Third-degree assault is considered a class one misdemeanor in Colorado and is defined as “knowingly or recklessly” causing bodily injury.

Denver won the NBA playoff series against Minnesota in five games with a score of 112-109, and Edwards missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer that could have tied the game.
