Anthony Edwards of the Timberwolves, who was dealing with an illness, has now been cleared to participate in Sunday’s game against the Golden State Warriors. In addition, Naz Reid, who was dealing with a neck issue, is also available for tonight.

On Friday, Edwards skipped practice, but it was a planned day off rather than due to any injury, and he was even considered questionable earlier before receiving approval to take the court today.

This season, Anthony Edwards has been remarkably consistent, not missing a single game, and his availability for this matchup maintains that streak intact.

In a recent showdown with the Spurs, Anthony Edwards showcased his skills with an impressive display, concluding the game with 28 points (shooting 9-21 from the field, 2-8 from beyond the arc, and 8-11 from the free-throw line).

Additionally, he recorded seven rebounds, five assists, one block, and two steals in a 117-110 triumph.

Throughout this season, Edwards has only failed to surpass the 20-point mark on one occasion, solidifying his status as one of the top-scoring guards in the league, regardless of the defensive challenges he encounters.

In addition to his scoring prowess, Edwards makes substantial contributions in various other statistical areas, enhancing his overall influence.

Across the eight games played so far, he is maintaining averages of 27.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.3 steals per game.
