The Minnesota Timberwolves Star Center underwent Carl-Anthony Towns stem call treatment and received platelet-rich plasma injections Friday to treat a number of injuries, ESPN reported Sunday.
According to reports, Towne was treated for both knees, his left ankle, his left wrist and the middle finger of his right hand.
Cities are reported to have opted for this method to avoid any off-season surgery. His right knee was particularly aching and he underwent surgery on his left wrist in February 2020.
The 26-year-old Towns was battling an injury as the Timberwolves reached the Western Conference playoffs. Minnesota lost to Memphis Grizzlies in six games in the first round of the series.
Towns’ girlfriend, Jordin Woods, posted a picture on Instagram on Sunday showing Towns on the sofa wrapped around his right leg. She has included the caption “Nurse Woods on Duty”.
The cities are expected to be ready for training camps.
Towns was an All-Star for the third time this season as he averaged 24.6 points and 9.8 rebounds in 74 games. He has averaged 23.2 points and 11.3 rebounds in 482 games (all starts) in seven NBA seasons.
Cities averaged 21.8 points and 10.8 rebounds in the series against the Grizzlies. It was the second playoff appearance of his career.
