  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns bullied the Rockets on Wednesday, tallying 25 points on 11-of-18 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists, three triples and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    Towns is a top-5 stud in 9-cat on the season and is money in the bank for solid all-around production in roto and head to head (despite the Wolves' fantasy playoff schedule) thanks to his unwavering durability.

    Karl-Anthony Towns double-doubled in Monday's 130-120 win against the Clippers with 24 points and 10 rebunds while adding two assists and two steals.

    Towns went 7-for-11 from the floor and converted 10-for-12 of his free throws. The Clippers didn't have anyone to match him down low and with Andrew Wiggins (illness) sitting it was an easy decision to let Towns feast tonight.

    Karl-Anthony Towns was a beast for the Wolves with 32 points on 12-of-20 shooting and a filled up stat sheet but it was not enough to carry them past the Anthony Davis-led Pelicans on Friday.

    KAT lit up the box score with eight rebounds, three assists, four 3-pointers, one steal and two blocks on the night. His defensive numbers have quieted down in recent games with KAT serving up just 0.8 blocks and 0.6 steals per game over his last five. He's clocking in with 1.8 blocks per game this season, so we should see him average up in that department in the coming games.

    Karl-Anthony Towns double-doubled against the Magic on Thursday with 27 points and 11 rebounds to go with five assists and two triples.

    Towns shot 12-for-16 from the floor and made his only free throw attempt. Nikola Vucevic has actually held opposing centers in check this season so for Towns to put up this sort of stat line is impressive, but with his talents he's almost matchup-proof.

    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 26 points on 8-of-14 shooting with 18 rebounds, three assists and one block in Tuesday's road loss to the Grizzlies.

    KAT putting up these lines is pretty commonplace these days and he's locked in as a top-5 option going forward.

    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 31 points on 12-of-19 shooting with 12 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and two treys in the Wolves' 107-106 loss to the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Towns' only blemish was a 5-of-9 mark from the line but nobody cares when you're bringing back top-5 value that's locked in for the rest of the year.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns double-doubled on Wednesday with 16 points and 10 rebounds and hit an overtime game-winner against the Grizzlies.

    The shot came off an Andrew Wiggins miss and an offensive rebound from KAT. He shot just 7-of-17 from the field and missed all six of his attempts from deep, but he made the shot that mattered and got the Wolves a win. He is locked in as a top-5 fantasy option for the rest of the season.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns facilitated the Wolves' offense on Sunday with a team-high seven assists, which he complemented with 22 points (6-of-10 shooting), six rebounds, three triples and three blocks.

    The Wolves were without both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose, so KAT flashed some of his versatility as a playmaker tonight. At 22 years young Towns is still raising the roof of his fantasy-friendly game, so don't be surprised him to test the limits of his already impressive statistical resume.

    Karl-Anthony Towns led the way on Friday night with 33 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal, three blocks and two triples while going 12-of-19 from the field.

    Towns nearly led a huge comeback charge as the Wolves put up a 33-16 fourth quarter but ultimately fell short by a couple buckets. KAT's locked and loaded as a top-3 fantasy player and will be putting up monster lines the rest of the way. Thankfully the Jimmy Butler stuff got dealt with early in the year.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns double-doubled against the Lakers on Thursday with 27 and 12 to go with five assists, a steal, two blocks and three triples.

    He went 10-for-18 from the floor and 4-for-5 at the line. KAT took advantage of a soft matchup against the Lakers interior and delivered with a full line on Thursday. He's been churning ever since Jimmy Butler was traded and there was never any doubt about his ability to put up top-3 fantasy numbers which is what he's been doing in the month of January.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting (including two threes) with 18 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block in Tuesday's 27-point win over the Suns.

    Towns has been the No. 3 ranked fantasy player over the last month and with Anthony Davis looking at some time off he's going to be the top big man in fantasy hoops, with Joel Embiid right behind him.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns dropped 30 points with 12 rebounds, four assists and four steals in a 116-114 win over the Suns on Sunday.

    He shot just 8-of-22 from the field, but added one 3-pointer and one block while shooting 13-of-13 from the line. He scored 28 of his 30 points in the first half and had an amazing performance aside from his field goal percentage. He is dominating as expected and is a top-10 play on the season and top-3 over the past month.

    Karl-Anthony Towns had a game to forget in Friday’s home loss to the Spurs, fouling out after 21 minutes with 23 points, one 3, six rebounds and three turnovers.

    Towns has had a bit of a rough week, shooting just 44 percent from the field coming into Friday’s game. He’s still a top-8 play for the year so don’t freak out. Taj Gibson double-doubled with 14 points, 11 boards and two blocks and has maintained his top-125 play under his new coach.

    Karl-Anthony Towns shot 4-for-10 from the floor for 13 points with three boards, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes on Tuesday against the Sixers.

    KAT sure knows how to stink up the joint when Jimmy Butler is nearby. It was easily his worst game since Butler left town, as the Timberwolves were getting blown out by 25 by halftime. Expect KAT to bounce back against the Spurs in a big way on Friday, as long as Butler isn't in attendance.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves are finalizing a deal to add veteran assistant Jerry Sichting to Ryan Saunders’ coaching staff.

    Sichting was a longtime coaching wingman for Flip Saunders and he is expected to fill the void left by Andy Greer’s departure. The team looks invested into empowering Saunders and the recent play by KAT and Andrew Wiggins makes us believe that things are finally trending towards the right direction in Minnesota.
