Andrew Wiggins Calls Dennis Schroder "Gay" In Postgame Interview

Andrew Wiggins Calls Dennis Schroder

Noel went up to contest a dunk attempt from Andrew Wiggins midway through the third quarter.

A stretcher quickly arrived, and the arena plunged into silence as the medical team tended to the big man. Though Noel was called for a foul on the play, Schroder apparently was unhappy about the incident and was exchanging words with Wiggins.

I said: "'I don't know what's wrong with him he was just getting... acting insane for no reason, '" Wiggins wrote.

After the play, Thunder guard Dennis Schroder was seen talking to the Timberwolves as they huddled, NewsOK.com reported. Obviously, Wiggins didn't mean anything in that - that should be said. I think he fell wrong. "I hope he gets healthy soon and comes back stronger".

ESPN report he was taken OU Medical Center where he is being held overnight to undergo some tests.

After video circulated of Wiggins' statement, the 23-year-old took to Twitter to apologize - and claimed he said "getting" instead of "gay". To make matters wore, Noel's head bounced off the floor, leading to him laying there for a few minutes while a stretcher was brought out. He shouldn't be taking any blame for that whatsoever. "They're a thing that's only natural, but I feel very comfortable with this group of coaches and group if players, too".

Noel joined the National Basketball Association in 2013 as the sixth-overall pick of the draft, going to the New Orleans Pelicans before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers. The process includes a series of steps created to ensure an athlete exhibits symptom-free behavior before resuming basketball activities. There is no timetable to complete the protocol.

Noel was averaging 5 points and 4.7 rebounds heading into the game against Minnesota.

"I didn't know if it was necessarily going to work, going against their schemes", Saunders told The Athletic about an hour after a thrilling, tense 119-117 victory over the Thunder.
