Wow…. apparently Karl-Anthony Towns has a pretty serious wrist injury that needed an MRI today (came back negative) and he will be evaluated again over All-Star Weekend.

I’m not saying that the Timberwolves are sitting Karl so they can have a better chance to lose this game…. but I’m not saying they aren’t either…

There is one thing we know for sure… Rosas & Co. seem willing to do just about whatever it takes to turn this franchise around. There is a reason they were adamant about hanging onto that 2020 1st round pick while they were wheeling and dealing last week.

Whether they hold onto that pick or trade it away for more established talent to three-way with KAT and D-Lo, you can bet they are well aware of what a few extra games in the loss column can mean for draft position…

We’ll see how long this new wrist injury lasts or whether it “flares up” at all during the 2nd half of the season…
