Karl-Anthony Towns News
Never before in Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns' professional career had he attempted four shots from the field or fewer -- until Thursday, that is. Towns' ability to be involved in the offense was thoroughly flummoxed by Memphis, who got the big man into foul trouble and forced him to make four turnovers. Across his 33 minutes, Towns finished with eight points, five rebounds, and a season-high five blocks, marking the first time he swatted five shots since Dec. 31, 2018. D'Angelo Russell keyed the offense with 21 shot attempts, but the Grizzlies' new-look approach in the frontcourt of Brandon Clarke and Xavier Tillman Sr. -- instead of Steven Adams -- has proven to deliver consternation. With just 11 combined shot attempts in his past two games, Towns is something of a shaky DFS option ahead of Game 4 on Saturday.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns helped get the win in Tuesday's Play-In Tournament over the Clippers, but he was held to just 11 points in the process. LA got Towns in foul trouble early and he was limited to just 24 minutes, but even when he was on the floor, he shot just 3-for-11 overall and committed four turnovers. The Clips had similar success in stymying Towns during the regular season, when he scored a season-low eight points on Nov. 13. Anthony Edwards (30 points) and D'Angelo Russell (29) carried the scoring load without Towns' usual production, as Naz Reid (eight) was also solid off the bench. Fortunately for Towns, the next time he suits up will be Saturday vs. Memphis, whom he averaged 23.3 points and 9.3 boards against during four regular-season outings.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns (rest) will be held out of Sunday's game vs. Chicago as the team attempts to keep him fresh for Tuesday's play-in game against LA. Towns finishes the 2021-22 regular season having averaged 24.2 points, 9.6 boards and 3.6 assists, all while shooting 52.9% overall, including 41% from long range. His absence will give Naz Reid a chance to shine Sunday, in addition to making him one of the premier DFS assets on the slate. Towns can be considered a full-go for Tuesday when he faces the Clippers, who held him to a season-low eight points the last time they met Nov. 13.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns (forearm) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Phoenix Suns. Towns was hit with a questionable tag earlier in the day due to a right forearm contusion, but it won't hold him out of action. March has been one of Towns' best months of the year. Over three-plus weeks in March, he's averaged 28.0 points, 11.2 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.9 three-pointers per game while shooting 57.4% from the field.
