After starting off slowly this season Towns has been much-improved since Jimmy Butler was traded to Philadelphia, averaging 22.5 points, 12.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.9 steals in 33.8 minutes per game (not counting Monday's numbers). And during that stretch, the forward/center shot 51.2% from the field and 41.1% from three (on 4.3 attempts per game). Dec 11 - 1:48 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 19 points (6-of-16 FG, 5-of-6 FT) with ten rebounds, two assists, one steal, one blocked shot and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes Saturday against the Trail Blazers.

After going off for 35 points and 12 rebounds in Wednesday's win over the Hornets, Towns was kept in check by the Trail Blazers. And this may be a matter of the particular matchup more than the big man struggling, as he averaged 18.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in the teams' first two meetings this season. While he didn't get the win, Towns has now posted a double-double in three consecutive and six of his last seven games.
Dec 9 - 1:10 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 35 points (13-of-20 FGs, 5-of-7 FTs) with 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals, a career-high matching six blocks, and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday.

It's a unique stat line as the first ever with at least 35 points, 10 boards, six blocks and four treys. This was also the second game of his career with 30, 10 and five blocks. He's now averaging 23.2 points, 10.6 boards, 2.6 dimes, 1.8 blocks, 1.8 steals, and 2.2 triples on nearly 50% shooting over his last five games. The Wolves are 4-1 in those five games and are surging, with KAT leading the way as the fantasy asset his owners picked in the top five.
Dec 5 - 11:57 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 24 points (10-of-24 FG, 3-of-4 FT) with 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals, one blocked shot and one three-pointer in 32 minutes Monday against the Rockets.

Towns has now scored 20 points or more in six of his last seven games, which represents his best run of the 2018-19 season to date. During this stretch he's also posted four double-doubles and just missed out on two others, grabbing nine rebounds in both of those games (11/23 vs. Brooklyn, 12/1 vs. Boston). Minnesota trading Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia last month has undoubtedly had a positive impact on Towns.
Dec 4 - 12:56 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 20 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two triples in 38 minutes vs. Boston on Saturday.

He’s been a different player since Butler was traded. KAT averaged 19.9 points, 10.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.0 blocks on 46% shooting before the trade, but has since been averaging 23.3 points, 14.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.9 blocks on 53% shooting in his last 10 games before Saturday. Once his blocks come back up, KAT should be in the top-5 conversation again.
Dec 1 - 10:36 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 16 points with 11 rebounds, five assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

He did turn the ball over four times, but he made 6-of-11 from the field and both free throws. Besides the turnover woes, Towns has been efficient, his assists are up lately, and he has three straight double-doubles. KAT should be back to being the top-five player fantasy owners drafted soon.
Nov 29 - 1:07 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 35 points (13-of-23 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs) with a season-high 22 rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

This was KAT's third career 30/20 game. He now has three games with 20+ rebounds so far this season. KAT's also hit at least one triple in every game this season. His efficiency has been much better of late, which is great to see. He's really, really good.
Nov 24 - 10:28 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 21 points during a 112-102 win over the Nets on Friday, adding nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He looked like he was in for a tough afternoon with early foul trouble and just two points in the first half, but KAT exploded for 17 points in the third to help the Wolves build up a big lead. Towns also picked up his fifth foul with six minutes left in the fourth, but coach Tom Thibodeau kept his big man in the game. Towns also finally kept his turnovers down with just two today after a whopping 5.6 per game over his last five. His schedule gets pretty soft over the next week with games against the Bulls, Cavs and Spurs, so he'll likely have at least one monster outing coming up.
Nov 23 - 2:43 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 22 points with seven rebounds, two assists, six turnovers and one 3-pointer in a 103-101 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

The turnovers continue to be the story with a whopping 5.6 per game over his last five, adding averages of 20.2 points, 14.6 boards, 2.2 dimes, 1.2 blocks, 0.4 steals and 1.6 treys. KAT's usage and efficiency problems have both been fixed since Jimmy Butler headed to Philly, so KAT's owners will gladly take the hit in turnovers after a very bumpy start.
Nov 21 - 11:02 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns put up a 15-point, 20-rebound double-double during Sunday's blowout loss to the Grizzlies.

KAT added one 3-pointer, two assists and one block while he was out there, but he also committed four turnovers, and the Timberwolves constant turnovers (20 to Memphis' 12) played a big role in the loss. Towns usage has oddly gone down with the departure of Jimmy Butler, but he's still been productive with averages of 19.8 points, 16.5 boards, 1.8 triples, 2.3 dimes and 1.5 swats per contest. It should only be a matter of time until he's back to dropping monster stat lines.
Nov 18 - 6:51 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 14 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one block, one steal and two 3-pointers during a 112-96 win over the Blazers on Friday.

KAT was going off in his last two with 25-21 and 25-16 lines without Jimmy Butler, but he made just 6-of-15 from the field today and didn't even get to the line. Towns has improved his efficiency in each of his seasons and he still hasn't hit his stride yet in his fourth year, so he has a buy-low window for a little while longer.
Nov 16 - 11:05 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns racked up 25 points (9-of-17 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), 16 boards, three dimes and two 3-pointers in a win vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

KAT had 20 points and 10 boards by halftime tonight, recording his 40th career double-double in a single half. He picked up his fifth foul with nearly nine minutes left in a close game, which led to a Pelicans run, but he came back to clinch a much-needed win. He's fifth in the NBA for fouls per game (3.5) which is something he can hopefully clean up -- beyond that, his path is paved with fantasy gold now that Jimmy Butler is gone.
Nov 14 - 11:25 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 25 points (9-of-11 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with a season-high 21 rebounds vs. the Nets on Monday, adding three assists, one steal, two blocks and two triples in 37 minutes.

That was his seventh career game with at least 20 boards. It wasn't all good though, as KAT turned the ball over a career-high 10 times (his previous high was seven). His usage rate wasn't much higher tonight with Jimmy Butler out of the mix, but Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose both had it going. KAT should continue to trend up and has a shot to finish inside the top-5 now that the Butler drama is over.
Nov 12 - 11:37 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns went off for a season-high 39 points in Friday's 121-110 loss to the Kings, hitting 15-of-27 shots and 7-of-7 from the line.

We saw a lot of these monster lines last season, but they have been few and far between in 2018-19. He pulled down a season-high 19 rebounds with one assist, one block and two triples, but what fantasy owners really wanted to see was the 27 shot attempts since KAT was attempting 13.9 shots entering Friday. The Nets have been generous to opposing centers this season, so hopefully KAT can keep it going on Monday.
Nov 10 - 1:40 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns missed 11 of his 16 shot attempts on Wednesday, finishing with 13 points, nine rebounds, three blocks and one steal.

Towns was 1-of-6 from deep and he committed a season-high six turnovers, all while being outscored by JaVale McGee (16 points on 8-of-10 shooting). KAT started slow but he's been stuffing the boxscore lately, including a huge game vs. the Clippers on Monday, so there's nothing to worry about here.
