Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Makes easy work of Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns recorded 28 points (10-19 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and three steals in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 119-100 win over the Pistons.

Towns extended his streak of scoring at least 20 points to 11 games Tuesday, and he scored at least 27 points for the third straight contest. While his rebounding has been down -- four straight games with single-digit boards -- Towns' passing has continued to be good. Tuesday marked Towns' 24th game of the season with at least five assists.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: One rebound shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns totaled 27 points (10-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 29 minutes during Sunday's 128-96 win over the Magic.

That's now 10 straight games in which Towns has topped 20 points, and he's collected five double-doubles over that stretch. His two blocked shots snapped a streak of six straight games of going without one.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Drops 27 in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns had 27 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-11 FT), six rebounds and four assists in Friday's loss to Miami.

For the third straight game, Towns found himself in foul trouble, so he played only 31 minutes in a game that was fairly close throughout. The big man still put up a strong stat line, though he failed to block a single shot for the sixth consecutive game.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Scores 22 points in 24 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns tallied 22 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 139-135 loss to the Grizzlies.

The 25-year-old ran into foul trouble Wednesday, which led to playing a season-low 24 minutes. Towns still managed to post his 35th 20-plus point game in limited minutes but failed to record a block for the fifth straight game. He'll look to get back on track as a shot blocker Friday on the road against the Heat.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Puts up 28 and 14 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns had 28 points (8-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and three steals in Saturday's overtime loss to the Pelicans.

The Wolves' four-game winning streak was snapped, but Towns turned in yet another fantastic statistical performance. While he did not block a shot for the fourth straight game, Towns continues to provide elite scoring, rebounding and out-of-position three-point production.

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

Towns totaled 22 points (6-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 11 rebounds and seven assists in 33 minutes during Thursday's 126-114 victory over the Warriors.

Towns struggled with his shooting in the victory but still managed yet another double-double. Not only were the rebounding numbers on point, but he also continues to flash upside with his passing. The Timberwolves are playing their best basketball of the season right now and so as long as he remains on the court, Towns should close out the season as an elite fantasy option across all formats.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Scores game-high 31 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns tallied 31 points (12-22 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 114-107 win over the Rockets.

The 25-year-old has been on a roll since missing two games in a row back on April 13 and 14, averaging 24.0 points, 9.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 2.4 three-pointers and 0.9 blocks over his last seven games. Towns also recorded his 10th 30-plus point game of the season Tuesday. He'll look to make it three wins in a row for the 14th-seeded Timberwolves Thursday at home against the Warriors.

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

Towns scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT) with 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in a 105-104 victory over the Jazz on Monday.

Towns scored 20-plus points for the fourth consecutive game and also secured his third double-double across that span. The center has averaged 24.3 points, 11.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.3 blocks per game over that stretch. Towns has been one of the most consistent players in the league this season, recording 29 double-doubles in his 40 games played.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Leads team with double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns produced 24 points (9-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot across 37 minutes in Saturday's 101-96 win over the Jazz.

Although the Timberwolves are suffering through an abysmal season, Towns has aided them in some surprising victories. The standout big man appears to have Utah's number, as he successfully produced another double-double to go to 2-0 against the league-leading Jazz this season. Towns has notched six double-doubles over his last 10 games, allowing his squad to play break-even ball over that span.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Paces team in narrow loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns totaled 26 points (7-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 9-9 FT), six assists and five rebounds across 33 minutes Wednesday in a loss to Sacramento.

Towns couldn't quite repeat his performance against the Kings from the previous night, when he pulled down 18 boards and blocked four shots, but he still led Minnesota in scoring and distributed six assists. The superstar center also knocked down multiple three-pointers for the eighth time in his past nine contests, highlighting one of the skills that makes him among fantasy's elite frontcourt options. Towns has been as effective as ever when healthy this season, posting per-game averages of 24.8 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 2.5 three-pointers and 1.5 blocks.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Crashes boards Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns totaled 26 points (9-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 18 rebounds, five assists and four blocked shots across 36 minutes in a 134-120 win over Sacramento on Tuesday.

Towns finished just two points shy of Anthony Edwards and D'Angelo Russell for the team lead, but scoring wasn't his strongest point Tuesday. The big man pulled down a season-high 18 boards and also tied a season best with four blocks. Finally, he finished with at least five assists for his eighth straight game and is averaging a career-high 4.6 dimes on the campaign.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns (knee) will play Tuesday against the Kings.

Towns left Sunday's matchup with the Clippers after suffering an apparent knee injury, but he's not listed on Minnesota's injury report and will ready to go for Tuesday's clash. He's averaging 27.6 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists through eight contests in April.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Hurts knee, exits as precaution
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch said Towns was removed in Sunday's 124-105 loss to the Clippers as a "precaution" after the center made knee-to-knee contact with another player during the game, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Timberwolves were trailing by 32 when Towns checked out with 9:24 remaining in the fourth quarter, so there would seem to be some validity to Finch's comment that the 25-year-old exited early as a matter of caution. Before departing, Towns was in the midst of a down night, and he ultimately finished with his fewest points (16) since March 14. Fantasy managers will want to monitor his status heading into a Tuesday/Wednesday back-to-back set in Sacramento, but for now, Towns can likely be considered somewhere between probable and questionable for the first of the two contests until the Timberwolves release their next injury report.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Awful shooting performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns had 16 points (5-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds and five assists across 25 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Clippers.

Towns struggled massively from the field and barely scored at a one-point-per-shot pace, and this outing ended a streak of seven straight games with at least 23 points for the star big man. The former Kentucky standout will hope to bounce back Tuesday in a more favorable matchup at Sacramento.

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.
