The Minnesota Timberwolves are back in action Sunday night as they face the Golden State Warriors at 8:30 p.m. ET. One player's status to keep an eye on ahead of tip-off is Anthony Edwards, who has missed been out for the past week with an ankle injury.

Anthony Edwards Injury Update (3/26/2023)

Anthony Edwards is listed as questionable to suit up against the Warriors, but the latest reports state nothing but optimism about his status. The 21-year-old is close to a return after missing each of the Minnesota's last three games and could be back in action in a crucial contest against Golden State.

Edwards originally went down early on in a game against the Bulls on March 17 and was clutching his ankle on the court in obvious pain. He was seen in a walking boot not too long after, but has worked hard to get back to basketball as soon as he can. The swelling has decreased with each passing day.

Minnesota faces a team that thrives at keeping opponents from scoring around the rim, which makes Edwards' abilities to create open shots from deep even more important. The former Georgia standout is averaging career-high marks across the board this season (24.7 points, 5.9 rebounds & 4.4 assists).

Anthony Edwards Fantasy Outlook and Prop Bets Today

Anthony Edwards is not listed among prop bets available for the Timberwolves-Warriors game on FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds, but it is worth noting no Minnesota players are. Oddsmakers are awaiting clarity on a few injury designations. Any bettors wanting to get in on the action should fade Minnesota in a tough road spot as Golden State is 9-0 against the spread in its last nine home games.

Edwards is listed among the top options on the FanDuel DFS slate tonight, though, checking in with the fifth-most expensive price tag among shooting guards ($9,000). He is averaging a dependable 41.7 FanDuel fantasy points per game and could fly past that mark against a Warriors defense that is giving up the seventh-most fantasy points to the position. He remains a solid option if ruled active.
