Towns Out At Least Another Two Weeks

Timberwolves star center Karl-Anthony Towns will be sidelined at least two more weeks with a left wrist fracture, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Towns hasn’t played since February 10 due to the injury, though it wasn’t diagnosed as a fracture until 11 days later.

At that time, the Timberwolves said they would re-evaluate Towns in two weeks. That timetable passed and the team now says the injury will be re-evaluated once again after giving it two more weeks to heal.

Towns has struggled to stay on the court this season. He also missed 15 games due to a sprained left knee and two others for a league-imposed suspension. He’s played just once with his new pick-and-roll partner, D’Angelo Russell, since the high-scoring guard was traded from Golden State.

On the positive side, Towns’ wrist won’t require surgery but his chances of returning to action before next season have diminished. Towns, 24, is averaging career highs in points (26.5 PPG) and assists (4.4 APG).

      Yeah mon very overrated… SMH!!! KAT has had 3 MVP caliber seasons in his 3 first years, very few players ever can claim that, oh boy the day people stop dissing him! Can’t wait for him to be back, the league ain’t the same without him!

    Problem with KAT is he thinks he’s AD, he’s not. Yet the Wolves sure act like it as well.
    Excellent player, just not where can be, yet.

      The one thing that KAT can do better is shoot threes. There has never been a player his size that can consistently shoot 40% from deep, while AD only has a career high 33.7% from three this season. On the right team KAT would be an invaluable asset.
