This influx of COVID-19 cases in the National Basketball Association goes to show that no matter how many protocols are put into play and enforced, there is always a chance of players testing positive. Back in April of 2020, Towns lost his mother to the Coronavirus and since then, he has lost six other relatives. He made a stark reference to her death in his announcement.

The Minnesota Timberwolves and their fans are all hoping for a speedy recovery for Karl-Anthony Towns, as he recently tested positive for COVID-19. "To my niece and nephew, Jolani and Max, I promise you I will not end up in a box next to grandma and I will beat this".

"I've seen a lot of coffins in the last seven months", said Towns.

Michigan hires Mike Hart as running back mentor
Hart played for MI from 2004-07, earning Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors and three first-team All-Big Ten selections. Jay Harbaugh, son of Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh , had served as Michigan's running backs coach since 2017.

The 25-year-old Towns played in just four of Minnesota's first 11 games this season because of a dislocated wrist he suffered on December 26 in the Timberwolves' second game. Though the National Basketball Association, as well as many other professional leagues, adapted to the circumstances and learned to play in a world where COVID-19 is the norm, the virus has the potential to spread very quickly amongst these professional teams.

"I pray every day that this nightmare of a virus will subside and I beg everyone to continue to take it seriously by taking all of the necessary precautions", Towns wrote in a statement after getting the call about his diagnosis.
