In April, Edwards averaged 21.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.6 steals a game. He was the only rookie to average more than 20 points a game. The Wolves ended the month with a four-game winning streak.
Edwards surpassed the 1,000-point mark last month, becoming the fifth-youngest player ever to reach that milestone, behind LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Devin Booker.
The 19-year-old guard is in the conversation to win the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award.
The Wolves currently have the second-worst record in the Western Conference.
