Canadian NBA star Andrew Wiggins denies calling opponent 'gay'

Donovan Mitchell sends prayers to Nerlens on Twitter after scary fall

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins (22) drives between Oklahoma City Thunder forward Jerami Grant (9) and center Steven Adams (12) in the first half of an NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City, Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019.

Noel took an elbow to the face from Andrew Wiggins as the Timberwolves guard went up for a dunk attempt in the third quarter.

The next morning, Wednesday, Jan. 9, reports by The Athletic said that Noel has been diagnosed with a concussion and avoided fracturing his skull.

Astronomers have revealed details of mysterious signals emanating from a distant galaxy, picked up by a telescope in Canada . There's no definitive cause of these fast radio bursts and it's unclear what caused multiple FRBs from the same location.


"I don't know what's wrong with him".

While speaking with the media, Wiggins was asked about the Schroder altercation and he had some not so nice things to say about him.

Except, between Wiggins telling reporters, "I don't know what's wrong with him", and, "He was acting insane for no reason", video of the exchange appeared to show him say of Schroder, "He was just gay".

China-US trade talks end on positive note
Europe, Japan and other trading partners echo Washington's complaints that those violate Beijing's market-opening obligations. The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.4 percent in the third quarter but surveys show consumer confidence weakening.


Wiggins said he was trying to be aggressive, but not trying to hurt Noel.

Players and fans offer prayers after Nerlens Noel crashes hard on court. He shouldn't be taking any blame for it whatsoever. "I hope nothing but the best for him". It's just one of those insane plays that happen. "Down the stretch, there were so many times where we could have disbanded and then the crowd could have got into us". Schroder later got into a shoving match with Minnesota point guard and former Atlanta Hawks teammate Jeff Teague that resulted in an ejection. "He was acting insane for no reason".

The incident sparked an angry reaction from the Thunder's Dennis Schroder, who spotted the Wolves bench laughing in the aftermath and assumed they were mocking Noel. He's not someone I look at as a problem.

"New captain" Ryan Saunders has Timberwolves' trust in interim role
Assistant coach Ryan Saunders will assume the role of the interim head coach for the remainder of the 2018-19 season. It will be the first time we get to see how the team's offense, defense and rotations will differ from Thibodeau.


Noel's injury overshadowed a superb performance from Wiggins, who finished with 40 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, shooting 11 of 24 from the field.
