Andrew Wiggins denies using ‘gay’ remark after 40-point game

‘The series don’t start till you win on the road’ – Lillard on Blazers 2-0 lead against Oklahoma

Andrew Wiggins could face a fine from the NBA for his comments.

Timberwolves guard Wiggins scored a season-high 40 points in a win over the Thunder on Tuesday, but his postgame comments in the locker room garnered more attention than his play on the court.

When asked about how Thunder guard Dennis Schroder reacted toward T-Wolves players after an injury to OKC forward Nerlens Noel, Wiggins raised a few eyebrows.


“I don’t know what’s wrong with him. Uh, he was just gay. He was acting crazy for no reason,” Wiggins appeared to say. “I look right through him. He’s not someone I look at as a problem. Not at all.”


Wiggins later addressed his comments on Twitter and denied using the word “gay.”


Wiggins could face a fine from the NBA for his comments if the league determines he said “gay.” Nuggets center Nikola Jokic was fined $25,000 for using “derogatory and offensive language” in November when he described Bulls rookie Wendell Carter Jr. by saying: “No homo, he’s longer than you expect.”
