There is optimism about the MRI results regarding the right knee of Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. 

Jon Krawczynski, Timberwolves reporter for The Athletic, notes the news is a "huge sign of relief" for Minnesota. 

Towns was injured Saturday night against the Washington Wizards. He left the game late in the fourth quarter and did not return. 

In 64 games this season, Towns is averaging 24.5 points per game on 52.4 per cent shooting. Towns, a two-time All-Star, is in his fourth NBA season, all with the T-Wolves.
