Towns sustained the injury at the end of regulation Saturday night, when he limped to the locker room. While it initially looked potentially serious, coach Ryan Saunders downplayed the severity of it after the game, and the MRI results seem to back that up. His status is unclear moving forward, but it doesn’t sound like anything that will sideline him for a lengthy period of time.
