“Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns to Undergo Surgery for Torn Meniscus”

Karl-Anthony Towns will have surgery to fix his left meniscus, as reported by ESPN on Thursday. He will be evaluated again in a month.

Towns is a major contributor to the Timberwolves’ success this season, with an average of 22.1 points per game, 50.1% shooting accuracy, and career-high 42.3% 3-point shooting accuracy. He also averages 8.4 rebounds and three assists per game.

Towns and Rudy Gobert have formed one of the league’s best frontcourts, helping the Timberwolves establish the league’s best defense (108.6 ppg). The Timberwolves are currently tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the top spot in the Western Conference. They need to finish in the top six to avoid the play-in tournament, which they have had to do in the past two seasons.

The Timberwolves have signed T.J. Warren to provide frontcourt depth as they face the Denver Nuggets three times in the remainder of the regular season. Towns has had several injury issues in previous seasons, including tailbone, knee, wrist, and calf injuries, which caused him to miss 51 games last year.
