Report: Timberwolves Star Undergoes Advanced Treatments For 5 Injuries

It's become apparent that Karl-Anthony Towns was playing through injury in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 6-game playoff series loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Five injuries, to be exact. 

Ramona Shelburne of ESPN detailed the extent of Towns' injuries—pain in both knees, a cyst in his left ankle, a subluxated left wrist and ligament damage on his right middle finger. She also reported on the advanced treatments he's now had on the various maladies. 

Towns underwent stem cell treatment and platelet-rich plasma injections in both knees, his left ankle, left wrist and right finger on Friday, according to Shelburne's sources. He's hoping these treatments help him avoid surgery this offseason.

Towns averaged 21.8 points in the 6-game Memphis series, with 10.8 rebounds and 2 blocks per game. The T-Wolves made the playoffs for only the 2nd time in 18 seasons.
