Minnesota Timberwolves centre Karl-Anthony Towns underwent stem-cell treatment and multiple platelet-rich plasma injections on Friday according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Towns received injections in both knees, his left ankle, and left and right fingers. The star Wolves man had opted to play through injuries during the post-season and undergo treatments in the summer.

Shelburne further reported that the 26-year-old was dealing with multiple injuries during the post-season. Towns had pain in both his knees and a cyst in his right ankle.

In addition, Towns suffered a subluxation — a partial dislocation — of his left wrist with ligament damage and had aggravated a joint of a finger in his shooting hand.

Towns averaged 21.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game for the Wolves during their first-round playoff series. Minnesota fell to the Memphis Grizzlies in six games.
