Sick, Karl-Anthony Towns has only been walking since this weekend

Absent since the start of Minnesota training camp, Karl Anthony Towns spoke Monday for the first time since the resumption, giving more indication of the origin of the evil which caused him respiratory problems and forced him to stay away from the parquet floors.

The interior thus revealed to have suffered from a throat infection which forced him to spend several days in bed. His pathology is not related to Covid, but it was serious enough to make him lose 8 kilos in a few days!

“KAT” also confided that he had to wait until this weekend before receiving permission… to walk again.

“I’m still recovering. I continue to progress. There were more meaningful things to worry about than basketball during illness”, he said yesterday. “I’m happy to be able to be back on the court, to recover and to be able to play basketball”.

Unsurprisingly, Chris Finch has indicated that his interior won’t be playing for the preseason opener in Miami tonight and that he still needs to get fit before joining the squad.

Note that Wolves begin a ten-day road trip with a game in Las Vegas against the Lakers, followed by two games in Los Angeles, before ending the preseason with a game at home against Brooklyn on October 14. . Difficult to say for the moment if Karl-Anthony Towns will be able to join the group before this date.

“With a good week of normal training, he should be doing pretty well”, reassured his coach.
