Karl-Anthony Towns: T’Wolves supporting him emotionally, ‘giving him space’

After the tragic death of his mother due to COVID-19, The Minnesota Timberwolves have been supporting Karl-Anthony Towns emotionally and “giving him space” as it relates to his physical recovery from a broken wrist.

Fantasy Impact

Towns’ mother tested positive for coronavirus and tragically passed away as a result of the infection, so the team has been doing everything they can to support KAT mentally and emotionally. This is absolutely the right thing to do given the circumstances. Towns was also recovering from a broken wrist when the NBA got suspended. In regards to his physical health, President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas said, “when the time is right, we’ll share more details.” Minnesota will not be making the trip down to Walt Disney World to finish out the 2019-20 NBA season, so Towns will get ample time to heal the broken wrist. Stay strong KAT.

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.

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) 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.
