Edwards, in his third NBA season, has become a critical scorer and shot creator for the Timberwolves, averaging 25 points a game this season. His role with the team and the offense have grown since Karl-Anthony Towns went out.
This is a critical game for both teams. At 35-35, the Timberwolves sit as the No.7 seed in the compacted West, but just 1.5 games from falling out of the playoffs entirely. The Bulls sit 12th in the East, but are just half-a-game out of the play-in.
