Minnesota Timberwolves Center Karl Anthony Towns is now facing the unfathomable - his mother, Jacqueline Towns - lost her battle with Coronavirus.  The team's statement and Karl's previous plea to fans, inside.


Three weeks ago, 24-year-old Karl Anthony Towns (aka KAT) shared his mother's story in hopes of making people realize the seriousness of the disease and the precautions we all should be taking. He revealed his mother tested positive for Covid-19.

Shortly after, she was placed into a coma to continue fighting for her life.  His father, Karl Sr., also tested positive for Covid-19 but made a full recovery.


This afternoon, Mrs. Towns sadly passed away, and the NBA star known for being extremely close to his mom, is getting an outpouring of support.


The Timberwolves issued a statement about Mrs. Townes stating:


She died just three months away from her birthday, which is the same day as her 27th wedding anniversary with Karl Sr.

Heartbreaking. Our condolences go out to the Towns family and to everyone who has lost loved ones during this grief-filled time.
