Kyle Anderson (29) reconciled with teammate Rudy Gobert (30, France).
Anderson said in an interview ahead of the Western Conference Play-In Tournament’s top seed game against the Los Angeles Lakers on the morning of the 12th (Korean time), “It’s boring. In sports, this happens all the time.”
“People treat it like they’ve never seen this before,” he said.
He added, “It’s honestly kind of sad to see how things are going now,” and added, “We will move on.”
The Minnesota Timberwolves (hereinafter referred to as Minnesota) had a fight between Gobert and Anderson in the second quarter against the New Orleans Pelicans on the 10th. Overhearing something, Gobert suddenly hit Anderson, and the two shouted at each other even as they were separated by several people.
Gobert later posted an apology for beating Anderson. And Minnesota punished Gobert by suspending him from the Lakers game.
“I wasn’t proud of what happened off the bench,먹튀검증” said Minnesota president Tim Connelly. “They’re actually close.” He also expressed his wish, saying, “Rudy’s apology in the aftermath was great and I hope he can undo his actions.”
Meanwhile, Minnesota wasn’t alone in their problems. Jayden McDaniels, a wing resource with excellent defense and solid offense, punched the wall on his way to the locker room during halftime. Ultimately, he fractured his hand and was ruled out for the season.
As a result, three members of the main rotation, including Naz Reed, who had already been absent from the game against the Lakers, were absent from the game.
