Rudy Gobert won't play for the Minnesota Timberwolves in their play-in game at the Los Angeles Lakers due to a suspension. Gobert will serve a one-game suspension and is expected to return for either another play-in game on Friday, or Game 1 of the Western Conference playoffs if the Wolves beat the Lakers.
Gobert and Kyle Anderson had a physical altercation during Sunday's win over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Gobert then tweeted Anderson an apology after the game.
"Emotions got the best of me today. I should not have reacted the way i did regardless of what was said. I wanna apologize to the fans, the organisation and particularly to Kyle, who is someone that i truly love and respect as a teammate," wrote Gobert.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Wolves "are not happy with either player: Rudy Gobert or Kyle Anderson. They felt Kyle Anderson played a role in escalating it. He didn't throw a punch, but he kept on Rudy Gobert verbally. Part of what Rudy Gobert was trying to say to Anderson in the huddle was he was playing injured and giving it what he could."
