Karl-Anthony Towns will missed the Timberwolves‘ contest against the Hornets on Wednesday night and it’s unclear if he will miss more time. Towns has a left wrist injury, as the team announced in a press release.
Towns had an MRI on Tuesday, which revealed the ailment. The big man will be further evaluated over the All-Star break.
“He’s a guy who takes a lot of contact,” Saunders said (via The Associated Press). “He’s a guy who attacks the rim with force. There’s been times where he’s getting knocked to the floor. So we know that there is wear in that sense but no specific action.”
The Wolves’ next game is on February 21 against the Celtics. Towns, who did not make the All-Star game this year, missed 15 games earlier this season with a knee injury.
