Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns (knee) has been out for Wednesday's game against Denver, Christian Clark of BSNDenver.com reports.

Towns will miss Wednesday's season finale due to inflammation in his right knee. For the 2018-19 season, Towns put up 24.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 blocks in 33.1 minutes per game.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Doubtful Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns (knee) is doubtful for Wednesday's finale against the Nuggets.

It's likely Towns will sit out for the second straight game, and he's probably played his final game of the year. Assuming that's the case, he'll finish averaging 24.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 blocks in 33.1 minutes.

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

Towns (knee) is out Tuesday against the Raptors, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Towns is dealing with right knee inflammation, and with the Wolves playing inconsequential basketball, he won't risk further injury. Towns will travel with the team for Wednesday's season finale in Denver, but it's unclear if he'll be available.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Questionable vs. Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Huge night isn't enough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Efficient performance in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns ended with 28 points (12-15 FG, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, and three blocks in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 110-108 victory over the Mavericks.

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.

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

Towns finished with 17 points (6-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 32 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Trail Blazers on Monday.

Towns couldn't find his shot on Monday, shooting just 28.5 percent from the floor. He did, however, finish with a double-double and some quality assist and block totals as well. Towns will likely try to finish the season on a positive note in another lost season for the Timberwolves.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Quieter than usual on boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns turned in 21 points (8-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block across 32 minutes in the Timberwolves' 118-109 loss to the 76ers on Saturday.

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. The big man saw his streak of five straight double-doubles snapped, yet he finished March with typically stellar averages of 27.3 points, 12.9 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.1 blocks across 32.3 minutes.

March 26, 2019 11:08 PM
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Another huge double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns finished with 24 points (6-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals over 35 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Clippers on Tuesday.

Towns produced yet another big double-double in what has been a string of huge performances for the big man as of late. Towns is averaging 27.0 points, 15.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.3 blocks per game over his last six contests, and more big games could be on tap as the Timberwolves play for pride to finish out the season.

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

Towns produced 21 points (7-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 16 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and a steal over 34 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Hornets on Thursday.

Towns followed up a 26 point, 21 rebound game against Golden State with another huge stat line on Thursday. Over his last four games, Towns has averaged an extremely productive line of 27.0 points, 13.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.3 blocks as one of the league's most valuable fantasy big men.

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.

March 19, 2019 11:08 PM
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.

March 18, 2019 12:08 AM
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.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-double but fouls out in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns totaled 26 points (9-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 27 minutes during Thursday's 120-100 loss to the Jazz.

Towns recorded a double-double as per usual but fouled out without even earning heavy minutes in the blowout loss. The 23-year-old big man is averaging career highs in assists, steals, and made threes while continuing to do lots of damage in the scoring and rebounding departments.

March 14, 2019 08:28 PM
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns (knee) is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against Utah.

Towns was listed as probable for Thursday's clash, likely as a precaution, and he'll start his second straight contest since missing one game due to a minor knee injury. The Timberwolves will also get Andrew Wiggins (thigh) back from a three-game absence.

March 13, 2019 06:20 PM
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Listed as probable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 13, 2019 03:00 AM
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-doubles in loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Officially starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 12, 2019 01:40 PM
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Expects to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
