Noel, who will likely be placed in the league's concussion protocol program, logged six minutes in Tuesday night's 119-117 loss, scoring six points on 3-of-4 shooting from the field and one rebound.

Former University of Kentucky big man Nerlens Noel was taken off the court on a stretcher after suffering a head injury during the Oklahoma City Thunder's game Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Hopefully, he's good. I hope nothing but the best for him.

After video circulated of Wiggins' statement, the 23-year-old took to Twitter to apologize - and claimed he said "getting" instead of "gay". Schroder, unhappy about the play and other incidents in what was a testy game, eventually was given a technical foul for an altercation with Timberwolves guard Jeff Teague.

Much of that came with Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns on the bench. "I hope he gets healthy soon and comes back stronger". Westbrook added 25 points and 16 assists while Steven Adams scored 20.

Experts still aren't sure whether the planet hosts life, but say if plants were transferred there, they would likely survive. It orbits a red dwarf star around 40 million light years away, and scientists think it holds giant oceans of magma.

Wiggins, however, says he was misunderstood. Saunders, 32, is not only the youngest active head coach in the National Basketball Association but also the youngest in at least 40 years.

Minnesota forward Andrew Wiggins is backtracking after using the word "gay" on to describe Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder's behavior during the recent game between the two teams.

A Minnesota turnover with 15.5 seconds left gave the Thunder one last chance, but two Russell Westbrook 3-point attempts missed the mark and Paul George's desperation putback went wide to give the Timberwolves their third consecutive win. Oklahoma City made 19 free throws overall. I said: "I don't know what's wrong with him he was just getting ... acting insane for no reason", he said on Twitter. He's not someone I look at as a problem.
