Thunder's Noel stretchered off floor following scary fall

During the middle of the third quarter, Andrew Wiggins - who was in the midst of another impressive game in OKC - took it strong to the basket.

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.

The game was delayed for more than five minutes with 5:16 remaining in the third quarter after Oklahoma City's Nerlens Noel went up for an attempted block against Wiggins.

Saunders, just 32 years old, is the son of former Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders.

He attacked the rim, drawing defenders from all over the court due to his hot hand, then calmly found a wide-open Josh Okogie in the corner who knocked down what would end up being the game-sealing triple. Uh, he was just gay.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins appeared to call Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder "gay" when questioned about Schroder's on-court behavior in a postgame interview, but Wiggins later denied making the homophobic remark once his comments went viral on Twitter.

Towns was 8 of 14 from the field and finished with 20 points.

It is hard to tell what exactly Wiggins said. I didn't really see it until I saw him on the ground.

National Basketball Association player Nerlens Noel had to be stretchered off the court after getting knocked out in a sickening fall during a game on Tuesday night.

Schroder was also involved in a skirmish with Minnesota guard Jeff Teague.

Continues Wiggins, "I look right through him".

And Steven Adams was keen to point no blame towards Wiggins for the unfortunate incident.

"I just tried to make an aggressive move and dunk", Wiggins told ESPN after Tuesday's game.
