Wolves' Karl-Anthony Towns says mom in coma with coronavirus

Wolves' Karl-Anthony Towns says mom in coma with coronavirus

"We can beat this, but this is serious and we need to take every precaution", the Timberwolves star wrote in the caption to the video.

"Please protect your families, your loved ones, friends, yourself. Practice social distancing, please don't be in places with a lot of people". "This disease is deadly". It's deadly. And we're going to keep fighting on my side, me and my family, we're going to keep fighting this.

Towns, 24, was born in Edison, raised in Piscataway and played his high school basketball at St. Joseph.

Cruz, who is a native of the Dominican Republic, has been a fixture at Towns's games throughout his development as a five-star recruit in New Jersey, a top overall pick after a one-and-done season at the University of Kentucky, and a five-year career with the Timberwolves. He was averaging a career-best 26.5 pints per game this season when the National Basketball Association season stopped two weeks ago due to the coronavirus pandemic. Towns said she has been in the hospital for a week. He added his parents first acknowledged not feeling well at the beginning of last week and were told to see a doctor immediately and after a few days without any sign of improvement, Towns and his sister instructed them to specifically get checked for coronavirus. "I was very adamant on the first day to go a hospital and seek further evaluation". She was put on a ventilator and has been in a medically-induced coma since he says. Her lungs were getting worse, her cough was getting worse. I was doing everything I could. "Her fever wasn't cutting from 103". It would maybe go down to 101.9 with the meds, then immediately spike back up. She was very uncomfortable. I haven't talked to her, haven't been able to obviously communicate with her, I've just been getting updates on her condition. This is one that's going to get it done.

Towns said he was doing his best to remain positive throughout the ordeal, providing encouragement to his mother, whom he described as "the boss" of the family and "the strongest woman I know". His father, meanwhile, has since been released and is in mandatory quarantine. "He's still there today". While seven National Basketball Association teams have announced positive tests for at least one member of their organizations, the Timberwolves are not one of them. Both of them didn't get results for a long time.

"Things went sideways quick".


"Life might keep throwing punches at me, but I'm going to keep getting back up", Towns said in the video. She's the head of our household.

His mother did feel better one day, but the symptoms quickly returned.

"I felt she was turning a corner", Towns said, describing a brief stint of progress. "She was telling me things I didn't want to hear". She was confused by everything.

Cruz once again required a ventilator, before being placed in an induced coma. "I talked through everything with her". Friedell is a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and joined ESPNChicago.com for its launch in April 2009. We're being positive; I'm being very positive.

Towns said he was sharing his story "in the hopes that everyone stays at home".
