NBA Minnesota, ‘Sudden Shock’ Due to Towns’ Knee Injury… Looking Forward to PO’s Return

Team’s first championship hopes ‘failed’

The Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association (NBA)

suffered a knee injury to Karl-Anthony Towns, a key member of the team.

Minnesota announced on the 8th (Korean time), “As a result of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test,

Towns was diagnosed with a ruptured lateral meniscus in his left knee.

He will undergo surgery early next week and be diagnosed again in four weeks.”

Towns is averaging 22.1 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 3 assists in the regular league this season.

He is a franchise star who was selected by Minnesota with the first overall pick in the 2015 rookie draft. 카지노

Even if the knee condition improves somewhat in early April,

it is expected that a return to the playoffs will be possible in mid-April at the earliest.

Minnesota is in first place in the Western Conference with 44 wins and 19 losses this season,

but there are 2nd place Oklahoma City Thunder (43 wins 19 losses), 3rd place Denver Nuggets (43 wins 20 losses), and 4th place LA Clippers (40 wins 21 losses).

Towns’ departure is painful as they are following closely.

In particular, Minnesota has been without a championship for the longest time among the four major professional sports in North America – American football, basketball, baseball, and ice hockey.

The most recent example of a Minnesota-based professional team winning the championship was the 1991 Major League Baseball team, the Minnesota Twins.

The LG Twins, a Korean professional baseball team with the same team name as ‘Twins’,

relieved themselves of winning the Korean Series last year for the first time since 1994,

but Minnesota fans were far from winning all four sports since 1991.

Among the 30 NBA teams, one of the 5 teams that has not reached the championship game is Minnesota,

and among the 32 teams in the North American Ice Hockey League (NHL),

one of the 5 teams that has never made the championship game is also Minnesota.

In this year’s NBA, Minnesota was ranked first in the West,

advancing to the championship game for the first time and further boosting the hopes of becoming the first Minnesota professional team to win the championship since 1991, but Towns’ injury cast a dark cloud.

Minnesota began its six-game road trip on this day, and took a breather by winning the first game, the Indiana Pacers, 113-111.

Anthony Edwards scored 44 points alone and dramatically blocked the opponent’s shot just before the end of the game to secure the victory.
