Karl-Anthony Towns, however, is listed as questionable to play. KAT is still recovering from a lengthy injury spell, but it’s also an illness that has put his status for Friday’s game in question.

Apart from Edwards and KAT, a few other players have been included in the Timberwolves’ injury report. Kyle Anderson and Taurean Prince have both also been upgraded to available, but Jaylen Nowell and Austin Rivers, are both out. Naz Reid was recently diagnosed with a broken wrist and is expected to be sidelined for an extended period.

However, with regard to the question of Are Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns playing tonight vs. the Lakers, the answer is yes.
