Video: Andrew Wiggins Calls Dennis Schroder "Gay" In Postgame Interview

The opening six minutes of the second half was much like the first with both teams exchanging buckets before a freak Nerlens Noel accident changed the tone of the game.

After being taken off of the court on a stretcher Tuesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Nerlens Noel has been diagnosed with a concussion, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. "I can't say enough about that team". "He obviously comes from a great pedigree with his dad (the late Flip Saunders), and he's been around it for a long time, and being around Thibs and in the game, so I'm sure he'll do a good job".

After video circulated of Wiggins' statement, the 23-year-old took to Twitter to apologize - and claimed he said "getting" instead of "gay". Schroder later got into a shoving match with Minnesota point guard and former Atlanta Hawks teammate Jeff Teague that resulted in an ejection. Though Noel was called for a foul on the play, Schroder apparently was unhappy about the incident and was exchanging words with Wiggins.

Except, between Wiggins telling reporters, "I don't know what's wrong with him", and, "He was acting insane for no reason", video of the exchange appeared to show him say of Schroder, "He was just gay".

Karl-Anthony Towns added 20 points and nine rebounds in 24 minutes as the Timberwolves won 119-117 to mark Ryan Saunders's first game in charge.




As Wiggins elevated, his elbow caught Noel flush to the face, dazing him. The play was reviewed, and no additional fouls were called.

"I don't even remember when I was 32", Thunder coach Billy Donovan joked before the game.

Timberwolves: G Derrick Rose missed his sixth straight game with a sprained right ankle.

Wiggins made 16 of 18 free throws, one short of his career high for made free throws. I said: "I don't know what's wrong with him he was just getting ... acting insane for no reason", he said on Twitter.

Oklahoma's next game is against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday (Friday NZT).
