For the second time this season, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards was named the Western Conference’s Rookie of the Month, receiving the award for his efforts in April.

Toronto Raptors guard Malachi Flynn was the Eastern Conference's choice for April.

Edwards, who was also honored as the conference’s top rookie in March, averaged 21.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 16 games in April. He shot 43.7% from the field and 34.4% from 3-point range last month, his best single-month marks in both categories.

Edwards never scored more than 28 points in any April contest, but he did rack up 22+ points in 10 of 16 contests as he continues to establish himself as a consistent scoring threat for the Wolves.

During the Wolves’ last four games in April -- all which resulted in wins -- Edwards averaged 20.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.3 steals per contest.

Edwards and the Timberwolves return to the floor Wednesday night to host the Memphis Grizzlies (32-32) at 7 p.m.
