KAT is back. After missing the last 13 games with a wrist injury and a case of COVID-19, Karl-Anthony Towns will be back in the Timberwolves lineup tonight, that according to The Athletic.

Towns has only played in four games this season. He dealt with a dislocated wrist before testing positive for COVID three weeks ago. Towns' mother died from complications with coronavirus last year.
