Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns Cleared For Full-Contact Play


The Minnesota Timberwolves shared some very exciting news for their fans and basketball fans in general: Karl-Anthony Towns, their All-Star center-forward, has been cleared for full-contact, 5-on-5 basketball activities after recovering from a torn left knee meniscus. This announcement comes as the Timberwolves continue their push for the top seed in the Western Conference.



Towns underwent successful surgery to repair the lateral meniscus tear in his left knee on March 12. Since then, the team has managed an impressive 11-5 record during his absence, with Naz Reid stepping up in his place. Now, with Towns back in the mix, the Timberwolves are poised to make a strong postseason run.

Having secured a top-three seed in the Western Conference already, the Timberwolves eagerly await their first-round playoff matchup, scheduled for April 20 or 21. Towns’ return adds firepower to their roster, as he averages 22.1 points and 8.4 rebounds per game, shooting a career-best 42.3% from beyond the arc.



Minnesota fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their superstar is back in action. As the regular season winds down, all eyes will be on Towns as he aims to lead the Timberwolves to their first playoff series win since 2004.
