Towns revealed Thursday that he has a Grade 3 right calf strain and will be out longer than the initially reported 4-to-6 week timetable, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "I wish it was four to six weeks. I knew then it wasn't going to be four to six," Towns said during a Twitch livestream.

Towns hurt his calf on Nov. 28 and initial reports said he would be out 4-to-6 weeks which would've put his return in mid-January. While it's not clear how long he'll be out, the Star Tribune notes a Grade 3 calf strain typically has a recovery time of more than two months. Towns did say his rehab was going well but didn't offer specifics.
