Breaking: Karl-Anthony Towns Reveals He's Been In Hospital & Lost 20 Pounds

Karl-Anthony Towns missed Media Day and the first week of training camp with the Minnesota Timberwolves, and now he's revealed the reason. He spent the week in hospital with a non-Covid illness.

Towns says he only started walking again on Saturday, and has lost about 20 pounds. But he's happy to be back on the court with his teammates. He won't play, however, in the T-Wolves' preseason game Tuesday night. 

Towns says he was concerned about his health while in the hospital. "There was more drastic things to worry about than basketball at that moment. I wasn’t too worried about basketball for a while."

KAT will team up with newly-acquired Rudy Gobert this season to form one of the biggest and most unique frontcourts in the league. Much is expected of Minnesota in 2022-23.
