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

Towns totaled 33 points (12-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 23 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 112-99 win over the Grizzlies.

Towns hauled in 20-plus boards for the second time in the last three games, and for the eighth time through 70 appearances this season. The 23-year-old big man has continued to raise his scoring average (24.7 per game) as the year has progressed, and he could ultimately surpass his previous career high in that area (25.1 points per game in 2016-17). Regardless, he's averaging career highs in rebounding, assists, threes, and steals while matching his best blocks average. Despite the fact that the Timberwolves have been eliminated from playoff contention, Towns and company seem to be focused on finishing strong and building some positive momentum heading into the offseason.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Dominant performance in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Playing through knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns is playing through a sore knee, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

This isn't exactly new information, as Towns has missed three games over the last month with a sore knee, but he continues to play through the ailment, even as the Wolves fall further out of the playoff picture. Towns has played 32.2 minutes per game over his last 11 contests, and while he continues to be among the league's best fantasy assets, it's possible the Wolves could hold him out of a few games down the stretch for precautionary reasons.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: 26 points and 21 rebounds in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns produced 26 points (10-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 21 rebounds, four assists and a steal over 35 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.

Towns produced his sixth 20-point, 20-rebound game of the season in Tuesday's loss. It's his second such game in his last 10 contests, and over that productive stretch, he's averaged 32.8 points, 13/1 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.3 blocks.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Another double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns finished with 22 points (8-22 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, and two blocks in 29 minutes during Sunday's 117-102 loss to the Rockets.

Towns managed another double-double in Sunday's loss but shot just 8-of-22 from the field. Clint Capela did a good job defending Towns, however, this was arguably Towns' best game against the Rockets big man. He should continue to be a beast down the stretch, even with the Timberwolves out of playoff contention. It is unlikely he will be rested given his work ethic and commitment to playing, meaning he could push to be the number one player over the final weeks of the season.
