Towns, who underwent surgery four weeks ago, was officially upgraded to questionable for Friday's game. He was cleared for full-contact, 5-on-5 basketball activities on Tuesday.

The Timberwolves close the regular season against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday.


Before going down, Towns was having a resurgent season, averaging 22.1 points and 8.4 rebounds on 50.6% shooting from the field and 42.3% from 3-point range.

The Wolves, who are 11-6 since Towns' injury, are tied with Oklahoma City at 55-25, just one game behind the Denver (56-24) in the Western Conference standings.
