Towns has only played in 20 games so far this season because of a hand injury and contracting COVID-19. He missed 13 games because of COVID-19.
In the four games Towns did play, he averaged 22 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists. The Timberwolves are 2-2 in those games.
The pandemic has hit Towns especially hard. He lost several family members to COVID-19, including his mother.
