  • 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.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Undergoes successful surgery

    The Timberwolves announced Tuesday that Towns underwent successful surgery to repair a left knee lateral meniscus tear and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

    While Towns seems unlikely to return before the end of the regular season, his successful surgery is a good sign that he will retake the floor for the playoffs. Kyle Anderson (shoulder) will likely remain in the starting lineup in the star big man's absence, with Naz Reid also taking on a larger role.
