Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Leads charge in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns scored a team-high 24 points (8-14 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 4-7 FT) while adding five rebounds, five assists and a block in 26 minutes during Friday's win over the Heat.

After missing the last two games while honoring the one-year anniversary of his mother's passing, Towns didn't see his usual workload or production but still came through when Minnesota needed him before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. The big man had reeled off 10 straight double-doubles prior to his absence, so look for him to begin a new streak soon enough.

Towns' family is holding a private memorial for his mother Monday, so he'll miss at least one game as the Timberwolves embark on a four-game Week 17. The big man is coming off another monster effort Sunday night against the Bulls, when he finished with 27 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists and two blocks in 37 minutes.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns posted 27 points (8-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 12 rebounds, eight assists and two blocks in Sunday's win over the Bulls.

Towns reeled off another monster effort as he continues to rank among the best players in all of fantasy basketball over the last month. Entering Sunday, Towns had racked up four 30-point efforts in his last five games, with averages of 30.8 points, 13.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.6 made threes in that stretch.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Posts 25th double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns tallied 30 points (10-22 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 42 minutes during Friday's overtime loss to the Celtics.

The 25-year-old has now scored 30-plus points in five out of his last seven games. Towns is off to a hot start in April, averaging 30.8 points, 13.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.6 three-pointers and 1.0 steals over his last five games. The sixth-year center will look to keep the good times rolling Sunday at home against the Bulls.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Scores 32 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns scored 32 points (12-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds, six assists and one block across 35 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

Towns continues to see massive playing time, as he's averaging 38 minutes per game across his last six contests. He's taken advantage by amassing impressive volume statistics, highlighted by 28.8 points, 14.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.3 blocks per game. Even with the return of D'Angelo Russell, Towns remains the predominant offensive threat on the Wolves and should deliver his usual brand of across-the-board production for the remainder of the campaign.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Extends double-double streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns recorded 23 points (8-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists and two steals over 36 minutes in Monday's 116-106 win over the Kings.

Towns has registered a double-double in seven straight outings while scoring at least 20 points in six of those contests. Over that span, he is averaging 28.1 points, 14.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.4 blocks per game. The uptick in assists in especially encouraging, as Towns seems to be taking on a more focalized role in the Minnesota offense just as head coach Chris Finch had promised when he replaced Ryan Saunders on the bench.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Sixth straight double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns tallied 39 points (11-23 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 13-14 FT), 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block during Saturday's 122-113 loss to the 76ers.

The 25-year-old has now recorded a double-double in six straight games -- a span in which he's averaged 29.0 points, 15.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.8 three-pointers and 1.7 blocks. The sixth-year center has been on a tear lately, and he should continue providing elite production in points, rebounds, three-pointers and blocks along with solid assists the rest of the way for the last-placed Timberwolves.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Posts another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns recorded 30 points (11-25 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block across 34 minutes in Friday's loss against the Grizzlies.

Towns didn't have his best shooting night and struggled badly from deep, but that didn't stop him to produce a monster stat line -- he recorded 30 or more points for the sixth time this season while also ending just one board shy of tying his season-best mark. Towns has scored 20-plus points in nine of his last 10 games and has scored at least 25 points in seven of those outings. His role as the Timberwolves' go-to player on offense is completely safe despite Anthony Edwards' recent performances and should remain one of the most productive big men in the league going forward regardless of your league's format.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Monster double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns recorded 18 points (7-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 17 rebounds, six assists and a block across 40 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

Towns didn't have his best shooting performance and needed 18 shots to finish with 18 points, but he supplied value both on the glass and as a playmaker. The offense has been going through Towns since the Timberwolves made their coaching change last month, and the star big man has benefited from that new approach, putting up excellent numbers on a nightly basis. He's posted four straight double-doubles and six in his last eight contests.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Another big game, another loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns posted 31 points (13-22 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists and three blocks in Monday's loss to the Nets.

Towns continues to pile up monster fantasy performances, but they rarely lead to wins for the Timberwolves. The big man typically contributes in all categories except for steals, and he's hit multiple threes in 10 of 11 games since the All-Star break.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Puts up 27 and 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Wolves continue to struggle, but Towns has been among the league's most productive fantasy players of late. Since the All-Star break, Towns is putting up 26.8 points, 9.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 3.0 three-pointers and 1.2 blocks in 34.9 minutes per contest.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Flirts with triple-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns ended with 29 points (9-26 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 16 rebounds, eight assists and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 107-101 victory over the Rockets.

Towns was fantastic again for the Timberwolves, helping them to an unlikely victory. Despite trailing midway through the final quarter, the team rallied to pour in 22 unanswered points down the stretch, securing them the win. Since returning to the lineup, Towns has looked incredible and is certainly beginning to look more aggressive on the offensive end of the floor. As long as he stays healthy, he should be able to continue putting up elite numbers on a nightly basis.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Goes for 22 on off shooting night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns scored 22 points (8-20 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six assists and five rebounds in a 128-108 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Towns has scored 20-plus points in five consecutive games and continues to be one of the most dominant centers in the league. Although this wasn't his best overall shooting game, the big man has shot very well from distance since returning from the All-Star break, having made multiple threes in seven of his last eight games. Over that stretch, Towns has posted impressive averages of 26.5 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Big game in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns had 33 points (10-28 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and a block in Monday's loss to the Thunder.

Towns carried the Wolves' offense on a night when they shot 41.3 percent from the field as a team and had only four players score in double figures. The big man has cranked up his production of late, scoring at least 24 points in four straight games while adding 8.8 rebounds per contest in that span. Towns' assist numbers tend to come and go, but he's remained a consistent contributor on the defensive end, as well.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Efficient shooting night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns finished with 24 points (9-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine boards, one assist and one block in 36 minutes of a 113-101 loss to Phoenix on Friday.

Towns narrowly missed out on his second consecutive double-double, falling one board shy. Towns only attempted 12 shots from the field, well below his season average, but made up for it with a sharp shooting night. He's now made eight three-pointers in his last two games on just 11 shots. He'll face the Thunder on Monday.
