Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) out at least two more weeks

Karl-Anthony Towns continues to heal from the broken left wrist, and the Wolves say surgery is not being discussed as an option, and he will be re-evaluated in another two weeks.

Fantasy Impact

This is what the Wolves said two weeks ago too, so we’re starting to get a little skeptical that Towns will return at all this season. Keep KAT stashed if you have an IR spot for him, but just realize you may not get anything from him the rest of the way. Naz Reid and Juancho Hernangomez continue to start and reap the benefits in a big way with Towns on the shelf. Reid and Hernangomez have probably been two of the most valuable waiver wire pick-ups late in the season.

Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) expected to be out at least two weeks

Karl-Anthony Towns was diagnosed with a fractured left wrist and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Towns will miss the next two weeks due to a fractured left wrist. Look for Juancho Hernangomez to see an extended role with Towns sidelined. Fantasy owners should stash KAT for now and hope he can return shortly after the two week timeframe.

Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) remains without a timetable

Karl-Anthony Towns will miss games and remains without a timetable to return from his left wrist injury, per Minnesota Timberwolves Head Coach Ryan Sanders.

Fantasy Impact

Towns missed last Wednesday's 115-108 loss to the Hornets due a left wrist injury. He is set to miss multiple games with no specific timetable for a return. Minnesota has upcoming four game road trip and return home on March 1st to play the Mavericks. Look for Juancho Hernangomez to see an expanded role and can be used as a streamer with Towns sidelined.

Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) set to miss multiple games

Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) is expected to miss multiple games after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Impact

KAT missed Wednesday’s 115-108 loss to the Hornets due to a wrist injury. He is expected to miss multiple contests after the All-Star break. It is unclear on how many games Towns will miss, but the latest news has him returning late-February or early-March. Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez would see an uptick in minutes and usage with Towns sidelined.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear exactly when he picked up the wrist injury but he'll be re-evaluated after the All-Star break. James Johnson will enter the starting lineup in his place, while D'Angelo Russell should dominate usage with KAT sidelined.
