NEW YORK (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star guard Anthony Edwards has been fined $50,000 by the NBA for a postgame outburst following the team's ouster from the playoffs in Denver.

NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Joe Dumars announced that Edwards was punished for "recklessly swinging a chair in frustration that struck two bystanders as he exited the court."

The incident occurred after the Timberwolves lost Game 5 of their first-round series to the eventual champion Nuggets.

Edwards was initially cited by Denver police for misdemeanor third degree assault. The charges were dismissed last month.
