Karl-Anthony Towns has been out of the Minnesota Timberwolves lineup since suffering a grade-3 calf strain on November 28 vs the Washington Wizards. Anthony Edwards has missed the last three games with a sprained ankle.

But according to Shams (The Athletic), there’s optimism within the organization that both KAT and Ant will be back on the floor as soon as Wednesday when the Wolves are scheduled to play the Atlanta Hawks.

The Wolves pulled off a huge win vs the New York Knicks on Monday, without their two superstars. But with just nine games left in a historically tight Western Conference, Minnesota will need all hands on deck. They still has a legitimate chance to make the NBA playoffs and avoid the play-in tournament. Problem is, they could just as easily miss the postseason all together.
