Mar 21, 2023

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Minnesota Timberwolves stars Karl-Anthony Towns, and Anthony Edwards could return for Wednesday’s contest against the Atlanta Hawks.

Towns has been sidelined since November 28 with a Grade 3 calf strain. The 27-year-old reportedly suffered a major setback in his recovery in January but appears set to rejoin the fold as Minnesota continues its push for the postseason (eighth in Western Conference).

“I feel good there is a day [coming],” said Towns. “There’s a time. I’ve been in the darkness of the tunnel and trying to figure out where I’m going. It’s good to know that there’s some light at the end of the tunnel.”

Before his injury, Towns was posting per-game averages of 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 5.3 assists in 21 appearances.

As for Edwards, he has missed the past two games due to a right ankle sprain. The All-Star has played in 71 games for Minnesota this season, averaging a team-leading 24.7 points, with 5.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists.
