Timberwolves head coach Ryan Saunders said Tuesday that Towns (wrist) has started to increase his activity in workouts, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports. "He's doing a little bit more, where he can kind of handle a ball on the court," Saunders said of Towns.
Towns was diagnosed with a dislocated left wrist after Minnesota's second game of the season and hasn't played since. The injury is to the same wrist he fractured last season, and at this stage, the Timberwolves appear to be considering him week-to-week. The fact that he's making progress and doing on-court work with the ball is a positive sign, but he'll remain sidelined through the end of the Wolves' road trip -- which concludes Thursday in Portland -- and likely a few more games after that.
