It’s not easy for the Minnesota Timberwolves to recover my power during this season.
According to local sources, it is unknown when Minnesota’s ‘Special K’ Carl-Anthony Towns (center-forward, 213cm, 112kg) will return.
This is what Minnesota manager Chris Finch himself said. He said that no timetable has been set for Towns’ return. He is out due to a right calf sprain and was expected to miss at least 4 to 6 weeks at the time of the injury. However, at the time he was injured he was 6 weeks old.
Recently, Towns mentioned that his injury was not a six-week diagnosis. He was not reported to have suffered serious injuries at the time of his injury, but it has been confirmed that he suffered much more serious injuries. Towns’ injury appears to take eight to 12 weeks to return, rather than four to six weeks. This is why his colon is getting longer.
Next week will be about eight weeks since Towns has been out. If it is not up to 12 weeks, but if more time is needed to at least add power, it is expected that it will be possible in February at the earliest. Although the presence of another All-Star center in Rudy Gobert avoids at least a power leak, there is bound to be a void if he does not return. 메이저놀이터
From this season, he became the main power forward with the addition of Gobert. Having played as a center since advancing to the NBA, he welcomed Gobert’s joining. Because I expected an immediate power increase. However, Minnesota has rarely been able to beat up despite having Towns, Gobert, and Anthony Edwards. Towns’ injury was also painful. So far, they are in ninth place in the Western Conference with 23 wins and 24 losses.
Above all, the coexistence of Towns and Gobert, and when the two played at the same time, were exposed in various parts, including mobility. Towns has no choice but to spend more time playing in places where he has not played before, and he has an advantage in outside shooting and airborne conversion compared to other centers, but his strengths are not diluted when he goes forward.
Towns has appeared in 21 games this season before getting injured. He recorded 20.8 points (.505 .325 .885), 8.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists in 33.8 minutes per game. Although the injury was early in the season, the average score is the lowest since entering the NBA. With the addition of Go Bear, a drop in average score was expected, but there was some regret in his overall performance.
He signed a major extension with Minnesota last summer. The two sides agreed to a four-year, $224 million contract. The existing contract had two years left, but the contract was handed over. It is a contract worth more than $50 million per year, and the contract is applied from the 2024-2025 season, and is classified as a player option in the 2027-2028 season, the last year of the contract.
