KAT joins 6 Timberwolves in COVID-19 protocols


Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols ahead of Minnesota’s game in Utah on Thursday.

He joins six Timberwolves players in the protocols, including starters Patrick Beverley, Anthony Edwards and Jarred Vanderbilt.

In a tweet shortly after the announcement, Towns lamented that he can’t catch a break.

Towns’ mother, Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, died at 59 last year from complications with COVID-19. Towns said before last season that six other family members had also died from complications with the virus.

The All-Star center himself tested positive for COVID-19 in January of last season and went on to miss 13 games.

“I am a high-risk case,” Towns said of his experience with the virus after returning. “COVID did not treat me well whatsoever. A lot of scary nights.”
