Karl-Anthony Towns’ mother passes away from coronavirus complications
— Minnesota Timberwolves (@Timberwolves) April 13, 2020
Back on March 25, Karl-Anthony Towns took to social media to announce that his mother was in a coma due to COVID-19. The entire NBA community sent their thoughts and prayers to the Timberwolves superstar at the time, and that will continue now that KAT’s mom has tragically passed away.
The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. Jazz teammate Donovan Mitchell tested positive shortly afterward, and a handful of other players tested positive as well, including Kevin Durant.
It’s unclear if the 2019-20 season will resume later in the year. Towns and the Timberwolves entered the hiatus with a 19-45 record, and the star big man is going to be grieving for a long time after his mother’s tragic passing.
