Karl-Anthony Towns to have knee surgery; to be re-evaluated in four weeks.

The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Thursday night that NBA All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns will have surgery to repair torn meniscus in his left knee early next week and he will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

Earlier Thursday, a source confirmed to KSTP Sports that Karl-Anthony Towns injured cartilage in his left knee and is working to get second opinions on it. That source added that the team and Towns are still weighing whether or not surgery will be required, which could determine how much of the season Towns will miss.

Previously, the team said Towns would miss Thursday’s game against the Pacers for knee soreness.

The Timberwolves final regular season game is April 14, so there is a chance that Towns could be back at some point in the playoffs.

Towns has played in 60 of Minnesota’s 62 games so far this season, averaging 22.1 points, 8.4 rebounds and 3 assists per game while shooting 50.6% from the field and a career-best 42.3% from three, earning him his four All-Star appearance.

The Timberwolves are currently first in the Western Conference and have the second-best record in the NBA.
