The Minnesota Timberwolves’ terrific season seemed to reach a roadblock about a month ago when All-Star big man Karl-Anthony Towns was forced to sit out with a torn left meniscus.

Somehow the Timberwolves continued to win games at a high rate without him, and they find themselves in second place in the Western Conference with a chance to finish with the top seed.

Towns is expected to return on Friday against the Atlanta Hawks, and he took to Twitter to simply post the word: “Back.”

Towns has been criticized by many who think he isn’t a truly great player or a winning player, but his season averages of 22.1 points and 8.4 rebounds a game on 50.6 percent overall shooting and 42.3 percent from 3-point range are nothing to sneeze at.

He scored 50 points in February’s All-Star Game, and it was the fourth time he was selected to play in the midseason classic.

While Towns may not be an outstanding defender like his fellow starting big man Rudy Gobert, he supplies Minnesota with the offense they will need to go far in the playoffs.

Minnesota wins with defense — they’re tops in defensive rating — but offensively, they’re certifiably mediocre, as they rank only 16th in offensive rating, 18th in points per game, and 25th in fast-break points per game.

There are plenty of people who feel they won’t go deep in the playoffs, but if Towns does indeed return to game action on Friday and picks up right where he left off, anything is possible in the parity-filled Western Conference.
