Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Leads way in win over Bulls
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

Towns had 27 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 11-12 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 33 minutes in Saturday's 129-107 loss to Houston.

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.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Explodes for 41 points in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns turned in 41 points (15-24 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists and a steal across 36 minutes in Thursday's 123-119 win over the Suns.

Towns' stat line is what fantasy managers have been hoping for since his return to action. The duo of Towns and Anthony Edwards could have beaten any team in the league on Thursday, and despite having the worst record in the NBA at the moment, their combined performance is a season highlight. If you kept your eye on Towns' usage, it was easy to see this kind of performance on the horizon. Towns was just brilliant overall, combining a double-double with five made three-pointers.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Scores 29 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns totaled 29 points (10-19 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-9 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and two blocked shots across 35 minutes Tuesday in a loss to the Lakers.

Towns tied with rookie Anthony Edwards for the team lead in scoring in the contest, registering his third-highest point total of the campaign in the process. He also chipped in with seven dimes and six boards while swatting exactly two shots for the third time in his past four games. Despite Minnesota's struggles this year, Towns continues to produce star-quality numbers with per-game averages of 22.2 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.7 blocks.

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

Towns tallied 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-6 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 40 minutes in Sunday's 114-112 win over the Trail Blazers.

Towns struggled from the floor and the free-throw line, but he added enough secondary numbers to salvage his tepid scoring totals. The standout center has recorded nine double-doubles since his return to action, and he was very close to hitting his first triple-double of the season in Sunday's win.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Scores season-high 34 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns recorded 34 points (12-21 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal across 34 minutes in Saturday's 125-121 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Towns continues to be the focal point of the Timberwolves' offense, and he delivered his best scoring output of the campaign while also notching his fourth double-double over his last five appearances. Towns also has seven double-doubles in his last 10 games and is averaging 23.6 points with 10.7 boards over that span.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Struggles vs. Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns recorded 16 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds and three assists across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 135-102 loss to the Hornets.

Wednesday's performance was arguably Towns' worst of the season, as he committed four turnovers in addition to his lackluster shooting during the Wolves' ninth consecutive loss. The effort marked Towns' first sub-20 point game since Feb. 19, where he scored 19 points against the Raptors.

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

Towns tallied 21 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal Sunday in a 118-99 loss to the Suns.

Towns will finish February with seven double-doubles across 11 games. He averaged 22.5 points during that span, a significant decrease from his 26.5 PPG posted last season. The former All-Star will now head into March without D'Angelo Russell (knee) and Malik Beasley (suspension) for most of it. Their absences will unlikely create winning results, but Towns is likely to see an uptick in usage.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns mustered 23 points (7-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and three blocks across 32 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Wizards.

Towns led the Timberwolves in points and assists while also finishing as the second-best rebounder behind Jarred Vanderbilt's 12 boards, and it's absolutely clear that he will be the engine that will make Minnesota's offense run on a nightly basis. Since the coaching change, Towns has shot at least 19 field-goal attempts in every game while recording two double-doubles -- one with assists and one with rebounds. Towns has seven double-doubles in his last 10 games.
