Karl-Anthony Towns will be out at least two more weeks due to a wrist fracture, the Minnesota Timberwolves announced on Friday.

Towns injured his wrist in January and underwent an MRI earlier this month. He missed one game before the All-Star break and will not be playing on Friday night when Minnesota plays its first game since the break.

The Timberwolves announced the following regarding Towns:

After sustaining a left wrist injury, Towns received a period of treatment and monitoring from the Wolves medical staff. Continued evaluation of the injury confirmed a wrist fracture.
