  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Limited in Game 2 victory

    Towns finished Tuesday's 105-93 win over the Suns in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals with 12 points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal over 24 minutes.

    The coaching staff continues to monitor Towns' minutes after he made a late-season return from a knee injury. He also picked up four fouls in quick time, perhaps limiting his time on the floor Tuesday.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Good to go

    Towns and Anthony Edwards (illness) will both get the green light for the regular-season finale, as the Timberwolves attempt to secure the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. Towns returned to action Friday following an 18-game absence and posted 11 points, eight assists, five rebounds and one block in 28 minutes during a win over Atlanta.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Questionable for finale

    Towns (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Suns.

    Towns returned to action Friday against the Hawks, his first game since March 4. He posted 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one block across 28 minutes, but now the Timberwolves are considering a maintenance day to make sure he's fresh for the postseason.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Shines as facilitator in return

    Towns (knee) posted 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one block across 28 minutes Friday in the Timberwolves' 109-106 win over the Hawks.

    Towns made his return to the lineup for the first time since March 4 after a five-plus-week recovery from surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his left knee. The Timberwolves didn't announce heading into Friday's game that Towns would be on a specific minutes restriction, but he ended up seeing more playing time than some might have expected in his return from a major injury. Though Towns' shooting was off the mark in his return, his eight assists matched his season high. The Timberwolves are currently tied with the Thunder and Nuggets atop the Western Conference standings, so expect Towns to take on more minutes in Sunday's regular-season finale with the Suns while Minnesota remains in a battle for the No. 1 seed.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Set to return against Atlanta

    Towns (knee) announced Friday that he will play in Friday's game versus the Hawks.

    Towns will return to action Friday after missing Minnesota's last 18 games with a left knee injury. While the star big man should reclaim his starting spot from Naz Reid, it wouldn't be surprising for Towns to operate on a minutes restriction against Atlanta.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Expected to return Friday

    Towns (knee), who is questionable for Friday's game against the Hawks, is expected to return to action against Atlanta, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Towns has been trending toward a return to action recently, as he was recently cleared for full-contact, 5-on-5 basketball activities in practice. He was expected to return sometime during the Timberwolves' final three games of the regular season, and it appears likely that he'll be back in action for the team's penultimate matchup. Assuming he's available, Minnesota will likely monitor his playing time ahead of the playoffs.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Questionable against Atlanta

    Towns (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta.

    Towns has missed the last 18 games due to a left knee injury, but he's been ramping up his activity level in practice recently and could be back in action for one of the Timberwolves' final two regular-season games. If he's able to suit up Friday, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 28-year-old face a minutes restriction to preserve his health ahead of the postseason.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Not planning to play Wednesday

    Towns (knee) isn't planning to play Wednesday against the Nuggets but could be back in action Friday against Atlanta or Sunday against Phoenix, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    A previous report suggested that Towns could return as early as Wednesday, but it appears as though the 28-year-old will rest for at least one more game before potentially getting back on the court to close out the regular season. He underwent surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his left knee in mid-March and will likely have his playing time monitored if he's able to return for the final weekend of the regular season.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Could return Wednesday

    Towns (knee) is expected to return for one of the Timberwolves' final three regular season games, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Towns underwent knee surgery in mid-March but recently participated in a scrimmage and was cleared for full-contact, 5-on-5 basketball activities. The 28-year-old has progressed quickly in his rehab process and could return to game action as early as Wednesday against the Nuggets. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Timberwolves manage his workload to close out the regular season.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Cleared for full contact, 5-on-5

    Towns (knee) remains out for Tuesday's matchup against the Wizards, but he's been cleared for full-contact, five-on-five basketball activities and is progressing toward his return to game action.

    Towns reportedly participated in a scrimmage Sunday, per Shams Charania of The Athletic, and is expected to suit up before the regular season ends. After Tuesday's game, the Timberwolves will head to Denver for a matchup against the Nuggets on Wednesday before finishing the regular season with two home games -- Friday versus Atlanta and Sunday against Phoenix.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Scrimmages, close to return

    Towns (knee) participated in a scrimmage Sunday and is nearing a return to game action, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. However, Towns will remain out for Tuesday's game versus Washington.

    The Timberwolves continue to have optimism that Towns will return before the regular season concludes, giving him a four-game window over the next week to suit up. The talented big man had surgery in mid-March to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his left knee and was slated to miss at least four weeks. If he is cleared to suit up this week, Towns will likely be limited but should have enough time to ramp up his conditioning before the postseason. Per Charania, when asked about Towns' potential return, teammate Anthony Edwards said, "KAT will be back."

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Regular-season return possible

    Towns continues to rehab his surgically repaired left meniscus and "there is optimism he could be back before the end of the regular season," Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Towns returned for eight contests at the end of the 2022-23 campaign after a multi-month absence due to a severe calf strain, so there is precedent for Minnesota to re-incorporate Towns before the playoffs if he is medically cleared. The 28-year-old is due for re-evaluation April 9, which marks four weeks removed from surgery and leaves four games remaining on Minnesota's schedule. The team's regular-season finale comes April 14 versus Phoenix, so Towns' window to return before the playoffs is narrow. Overall, his recovery appears to be going smoothly, which bodes extremely well for Minnesota's postseason aspirations.
