According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, a cornerstone player for the Minnesota Timberwolves Karl Anthony Towns has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his left knee and is out indefinitely.

The Minneapolis team, who were crafting one of the season’s success stories with a 43-19 record, now face a challenging period without one of their key players.

Prior to this injury, Towns had been a force to be reckoned with through 60 games this season, averaging an impressive 22.1 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. His efficiency was notable, maintaining a shooting percentage of 50.6% from the field and an impressive 42.3% from beyond the arc.

Having earned his fourth All-Star appearance this season, Towns played a crucial role in anchoring one of the NBA’s top defenses, often partnering with Rudy Gobert.

Now in his ninth season with the Timberwolves, Towns was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft.
