Former Kentucky Wildcats star Karl-Anthony Towns was involved in an auto accident, but it appears he avoided any major injuries.

Towns was part of an accident on Thursday while on the way to the airport. He flew into New York last night and was excused from shootaround this morning to rest at the hotel.

In a statement released by the Minnesota Timberwolves, interim head coach Ryan Saunders announced that Towns is questionable for tonight’s game vs. the New York Knicks.

It’s unclear what kind of injuries Towns may have sustained, but it appears they were minor at best if he’s able to return to action soon.

Towns was just part of the NBA All-Star Game as a reserve for Team LeBron, He finished with 11 points on 5/7 shooting, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 11 minutes in what was his second All-Star appearance.

Best wishes to Towns for a speedy recovery.
