Towns (wrist) tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Towns, who recently returned from a six-game absence due to a wrist injury, now will miss extended time with a positive coronavirus diagnosis. Towns' mother passed away due to complications with the virus, so this is a personal issue for him as well, as evidenced by his emotional social media post. While Towns is isolating and recovering, Naz Reid and Ed Davis will likely see the majority of center minutes for Minnesota.
Towns (wrist) and the Timberwolves will not play Friday against the Grizzlies as the game has been postponed, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Postponements continue to run rampant throughout the league, and the Timberwolves and Grizzlies are the latest victims. As far as we know, the game between the Wolves and Hawks on Monday is still on.
Towns (wrist) is probable Friday against the Grizzlies. Towns has played two games after recovering from a wrist injury, and he hasn't looked slowed down at all, averaging 25.0 points, 13.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.5 blocks in those contests. Chances are, he'll see the court again Friday.
Towns had 25 points (8-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in Wednesday's 118-107 loss to the Grizzlies. It was a tale of two halves for Towns, who scored 17 points in one half and grabbed 10 boards during the other. The performance marked his ninth consecutive double-double dating back to 2020. It shows Towns will likely remain the Timberwolves' top option despite playing just 14 games for them last year.
Towns (wrist) will start Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, Wolves radio voice Alan Horton reports. As expected, Towns will return to action Wednesday after missing Sunday's game on the second night of a back-to-back. In his return from a wrist injury on Saturday, Towns finished with 25 points, 13 boards, four assists and three blocks in 37 minutes.
