Minnesota’s regular season concludes on April 14, which aligns with Karl-Anthony Towns’ re-evaluation timeline. If all goes well and there are no setbacks, he could potentially make a comeback during the first round of the playoffs. However, this isn’t a specific return date; it’s merely when he’ll be assessed again. The Timberwolves will need to rely on their other talents, including rising star Anthony Edwards and defensive stalwart Rudy Gobert, to finish the season strong.

Overcoming the best teams in the Western Conference won’t be easy, whether Towns returns or not. The Denver Nuggets, fresh off an NBA Finals appearance, and the Oklahoma City Thunder, currently leading the conference, pose formidable challenges. Minnesota’s focus now is on securing the highest possible seed for the playoffs.
