Towns is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Raptors with right knee inflammation.
Towns is coming off a monster offensive performance Sunday against the Thunder where he recorded 35 points and seven rebounds, but he appears to have emerged with some knee issues. It's likely not anything serious, however, and given that the Timberwolves have just two games left in their season, the decision to play or not will likely be Towns' in the end.
Towns registered 35 points (11-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 13-14 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block over 33 minutes Sunday against Oklahoma City.
Towns erupted for a game-high 35 points, although the Timberwolves would fall 132-126. The 23-year-old center was limited to just 13 points in his team's previous matchup Friday night against the Heat, but he responded with one of his better performances of the season. Towns continues to play big minutes even though Minnesota has no chance of a playoff berth.

Towns put up another impressive performance Wednesday, leading the Timberwolves to a two-point victory over the Mavericks. Of all the fantasy studs, Towns appears the least likely to be rested despite the fact the Timberwolves are out of the running when it comes to post-season basketball. Towns has had a terrific finish to the season but oddly enough, has hit just one three-pointer in his last four games.

Towns didn't have his usual prolific rebounding performance, but he still turned in a serviceable line overall one night after sinking a game-winning free throw versus the Warriors.

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.

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.

Towns is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Jazz due to right knee inflammation.
Towns posted 34 points and 10 rebounds across 32 minutes in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Nuggets and appears to have emerged from the contest somewhat dinged up. However, it appears the big man's knee inflammation isn't too serious, and the expectation is that Towns will be in the lineup Thursday.
Towns ended with 34 points (14-25 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, and three blocks in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 133-107 loss to the Nuggets.
Towns returned from a one-game absence, finishing with 34 points and 10 rebounds in 32 minutes. He appeared untroubled by the knee injury, although the playing time was down slightly on what we are used to seeing. This may have been by design or as a result of the scoreline. Whatever the case, it appears as though he will be fine moving forward and should remain a solid top-five player for the remainder of the season.
Towns (knee) is officially listed as the starting center in Tuesday's tilt against the Nuggets, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
No surprise here, as Towns intimated at shootaround that he expected to play. With Jeff Teague (foot), Derrick Rose (shoulder), and Andrew Wiggins (thigh) already ruled out, he will presumably be called upon to carry much of the load offensively.
Towns (knee) intimated at shootaround that he expects to play Tuesday against the Nuggets, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports. "I'm ready to go, ready to go any time for my teammates," Towns said. "Fans don't have anything to worry about with me, we're warriors, we're built to fight & built to go to war so that's what I'm built to do."
The quote gets a little wordy toward the end, but the implication is that Towns will be available Tuesday night after a knee issue kept him out of Sunday's win over the Knicks. The Wolves are still listing Towns as questionable, but expect the big man to be back in the mix up front, which will likely send Taj Gibson back to the bench.
