The Wolves hosted the New Orleans Pelicans for their regular season on Sunday, April 9.
In a huddle on Minnesota’s sideline during a timeout, Gobert and Kyle Anderson were in a heated discussion before the three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year went at his teammate.
Gobert threw a punch at Anderson before teammates separate the duo. The former Jazzman was pushed by Taurean Prince during the scuffle.

This trade keeps getting worse for the Timberwolves.
Have to think Minnesota suspends him for a game at least, and that’s a huge blow for the play-in. 🤦🏻♂️
