Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert swung at teammate Kyle Anderson during a second-quarter timeout and was escorted to the locker room during Sunday afternoon’s 113-108 win over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Just after halftime, the Timberwolves announced Gobert was out for the remainder of the game.
Video of the incident showed Gobert and Anderson having words while standing on opposite ends of the Timberwolves huddle. The two continued to exchange words until Anderson said something Gobert took exception to. Gobert stepped over Timberwolves coach Chris Finch and then swung at Anderson, appearing to hit him in the chest.
Timberwolves have sent Rudy Gobert home after Gobert threw punch at teammate Kyle Anderson during a timeout huddle, per sources. He is out for remainder of game.
