On Monday night, the team’s entire fanbase was left shaken when they saw Towns go down during their game against the Washington Wizards.
It wasn’t clear what was wrong with him when he grabbed his right leg, but it appeared as if it could be serious.

Now we know the extent of the injury and the absence he will endure.
Towns will be out for 4-6 weeks with a right calf strain, it was revealed on Tuesday.
That’s not the news that the T-Wolves wanted and fans are already thinking that bad times are now right around the corner without Towns.
But is there a chance that this could actually help the team find the rhythm they are so desperately missing?
T-Wolves Without Towns
Right now, Minnesota is the 10th team in the west with a lacking 10-11 record.
This was a team that was expected to be much, much better than the 10th seed, especially after acquiring Rudy Gobert in the summer.
But, so far, the new lineup hasn’t produced as anticipated and it is clear that the squad isn’t working like the cohesive unit it’s supposed to be.
Perhaps the Timberwolves will be able to find a rhythm that works without Towns.
As great as he is, maybe the team needs him to be gone to figure out what’s plaguing them.
It wouldn’t be the first time a team corrected itself without its biggest star.
Of course, there is also a chance that the team will struggle mightily without Towns, who averages 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 5.3 assists a game.
All eyes will be on Minnesota over the next few weeks as they try to get by without him.
