Karl-Anthony Towns questionable against Knicks following car accident

Karl Anthony Towns

The Minnesota Timberwolves may be without Karl-Anthony Towns in their first game back from the All-Star break on Friday, as the big man was involved in a car accident the day prior.

Timberwolves coach Ryan Saunders told reporters Towns got into a car accident on his way to the airport on Thursday but was able to take a commercial flight to New York later that night. He is listed as questionable to face the Knicks, and the Timberwolves are monitoring him.

Fortunately, it does not sound like Towns suffered any type of serious injury. The former No. 1 overall pick is averaging 23.1 points, 12.0 rebounds and a career-high 1.8 blocks per game this season. He has also been responsible for some dramatic moments that have kept Minnesota in the playoff hunt.

Even if Towns misses Thursday night’s game, he likely is not looking at a lengthy absence.
