New York (AP) -- Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards was fined $40,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for homophobic comments he made on social media.

The league announced the punishment for Edwards' use of “offensive and derogatory language" in a since-deleted Instagram video he later apologized for.
