Ant misses Wolves’ tipoff: ‘Lost track of time’


Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards was forced to come off the bench in Monday night’s 119-114 win over the Portland Trail Blazers because he missed the opening tipoff.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker replaced him on the court, and the Wolves were awarded a delay of game violation.

“I lost track of time,” said Edwards, who usually spends much of pregame warmups doing resistance band work outside the team locker room.

Edwards checked in with 11:25 remaining in the first quarter and ended up scoring 13 points in 35 minutes. It was the first time he started a game off the bench since his rookie season.

Edwards was shaken up by a right elbow contusion in the third quarter and was listed as questionable to return, but he was back to start the fourth quarter.
