Karl-Anthony Towns dominated on Tuesday with 33 points (13-for-20 FGs, 3-for-4 FTs), 10 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and four threes in a 119-111 win over the Pacers in Indianapolis.
What, no steals? Kidding. This is about all you could ask for from a top-5 fantasy pick. Towns had all of his strengths on display in limited minutes tonight. He should certainly be in consideration for the first pick in drafts.

Karl-Anthony Towns scored seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and two triples on Thursday.
KAT should have no trouble producing at a top-5 value and is one of the most reliable fantasy studs out there. There's no drama heading into this year and KAT is the man in Minnesota.

Karl-Anthony Towns seems ready to roll, as he needed just 19 minutes to post 19 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in a 106-111 loss to the Suns on Tuesday.
Not much to see here aside from the usual jaw-dropping numbers from Towns. Take him with confidence as high as you like in fantasy drafts once again.

Karl-Anthony Towns said he's, "been held back to 40 percent of my talent," and that he is looking forward to doing the things he has done his whole life.
Towns said that it would be fun to be able to play more freely and fully show what he is capable of doing. Towns had a monster finish to the season and put up some of the best numbers of his career last season. At just 24 and primed to continue to improve as the focal point of the Wolves, he is a natural choice as a top-five selection in fantasy drafts.

The Wolves have secured permission to interview Pelicans assistant Chris Finch for their coaching vacancy.
Finch and new Wolves president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas have worked together in Houston so this is not surprising. Rosas has decided to interview external candidates, including the Heat’s Juwan Howard and the Blazers’ David Vanterpool, while also giving interim coach Ryan Saunders prime consideration to stay on.

Karl-Anthony Towns missed the fifth game of the season and his career on Wednesday night, wrapping up his season with averages of 24.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.9 steals, 1.6 blocks and 1.8 3-pointers as well as top-5 fantasy value in all permutations.
It took a potentially fatal car accident for Towns to miss the first few games of his career, and he missed three more with right knee inflammation (including the meaningless final two games of the year) thereafter. The rebounds, assists, steals and 3-pointers were all new personal bests for KAT, and he remained an absolutely dominant fantasy player despite shooting under 54 percent for the first time in his career (.518). The sky really is the limit for Towns, and you'll have to get some draft lottery luck in order to land him for the next decade or so.

Karl-Anthony Towns has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's regular season finale vs. the Nuggets.
With Towns out, Gorgui Dieng will assume the starting role and get all the burn he can handle. He is a worthy DFS play regardless of how the match up with Denver goes.

The Wolves are listing Karl-Anthony Towns as doubtful for Wednesday's season finale.
Towns missed Tuesday's game for right knee inflammation, so it's either more of that or a rest day for the young star. Gorgui Dieng is likely to start again and is worth a long look in all formats.

The Wolves are planning to open a search for a new President of Basketball Operations, with owner Glen Taylor preferring to keep general manager Scott Layden and interim coach Ryan Saunders as part of a revised organizational structure, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Layden survived the purge of Tom Thibodeau in early January and has previous experience as a GM with the Jazz and the Knicks. Saunders, 32, is the youngest head coach in the league, but he has earned the endorsement of franchise star Karl-Anthony Towns and is expected to get an extension this summer.

Karl-Anthony Towns (right knee inflammation) has been ruled out of Tuesday's matchup with the Raptors.
Gorgui Dieng will get the start and is worth a long look with not much in the way of competition.

Karl-Anthony Towns (right knee inflammation) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
If KAT can't go, Gorgui Dieng would be in line for a substantial minutes boost. Make sure to check back in on the situation as we get closer to tip-off.

Karl-Anthony Towns had yet another big game with 35 points, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in Sunday's 126-132 loss to the Thunder.
Towns went 11-of-18 from the field and 13-of-14 from the line, and he also forced Steven Adams into six fouls in just 27 minutes. KAT's going to continue to field questions as long as the Wolves keep missing the playoffs, but fantasy owners know how dangerous he is.

Karl-Anthony Towns struggled in Friday's win over the Heat, committing a season-high 11 turnovers while scoring just 13 points (5-of-10 shooting).
He was slowed down by foul trouble at spots in the game, but KAT still managed to post a serviceable, albeit moderately disappointing line with him adding 12 boards, four dimes, one trey and one steal to the box score. This rough night notwithstanding, KAT should still be able to finish 2018-19 as a top-5 player in 9-cat.
The Wolves got bogged down in drama, taking a step back while incorporating some new faces
