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

Thunder center Steven Adams said Wiggins didn't intentionally try to hurt Noel.

Andrew Wiggins scored a season-high 40 points as the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 119-117 on Tuesday night.

Noel is averaging five points and 4.7 rebounds per game in 2018-19.

If you listen to the clip a few times, it does sound like Wiggins said "getting".

And Steven Adams was keen to point no blame towards Wiggins for the unfortunate incident.

Players and fans immediately grasped the seriousness of the situation as silence descended on the arena, while the Thunder medical staff rushed onto the court to help Noel.

New Democrat MP Nathan Cullen, who represents the area, said the protest he witnessed on Monday was "determined" but "peaceful". Madonna Saunderson would not say how many RCMP officers were involved in the operation.

Schroder was also involved in a skirmish with Minnesota guard Jeff Teague.

Saunders, just 32 years old, is the son of former Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders. I look right through him.

"I just tried to make an aggressive move and dunk", he said. Wiggins attacked the basket with ferocity and inadvertently elbowed Noel in the face, knocking the big man out before he face-planted into the floor. "I hope he gets healthy soon and comes back stronger".

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. He finished with eight points in 26 minutes. Westbrook was fouled on the next possession, sunk two free throws before two game-winning 3-point attempts at the buzzer. 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 see as a problem".
