Wiggins Was Incredible In Win Over Thunder

Video: Andrew Wiggins Calls Dennis Schroder

Thunder big man Nerlens Noel was released from the hospital Wednesday after being held overnight as a precaution, the result of suffering a concussion in a scary fall during Tuesday night's game against the Timberwolves, the team announced.

Per the NBA's Concussion Policy, Noel will now begin the NBA-mandated Return-to-Participation Protocol. There were initially fears that he may have suffered some sort of fracture, but that was not the case.

On the dunk attempt, Noel took an elbow in the face as Wiggins went up, and Noel's head hit the ground hard.

"Coach put the ball in my hands at the end", Wiggins said, "and I did the best I could to try to get everyone involved and make the plays we needed to win".

Noel lost consciousness after he fell to the ground and hit his head. The play was reviewed, and no additional fouls were accessed.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Nerlens Noel is wheeled off the court on a stretcher in the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves in Oklahoma City, Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019.

"I think that's something I'm just going to keep between Andrew and I as our conversations and things unfold", Saunders told KFXN. Schroder later got into a shoving match with Minnesota point guard and former Atlanta Hawks teammate Jeff Teague that resulted in an ejection.

Said Thunder star Russell Westbrook: "I'd just rather not talk about it". "He tried to contest it".

Andrew Wiggins torched the Thunder all night long, posting 40 points (11-24 from the field, 2-4 from three and 16-18 from the line), 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes while Paul George led OKC with 27 points on 9-24 shooting. I look right through him. Hopefully, he's good. I hope nothing but the best for him.

When asked about Schroder after the game, Wiggins made remarks that will likely earn him a call from the league office.
