Timberwolves Star Karl-Anthony Towns Loses Mother to COVID-19

Tragic news struck the NBA earlier in the day as Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns lost his mother, Jacqueline Cruz, who was battling the novel coronavirus.

She was 59 years of age.

– a wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister aunt and friend,” a family spokesperson said in a statement released by the Wolves. “The matriarch of the Towns family, she was an incredible source of strength; a fiery, caring extremely loving person, who touched everyone she met. Her passion was palpable and her energy will never be replaced.”

Cruz was placed in a medically induced coma last month.

“This disease needs not to be taken lightly. Please protect your families, your loved ones, your friends, yourself. Practice social distancing. Please don’t be in places with a lot of people,” said Towns, who donated $100,000 last month to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for COVID-19 testing.

Towns’ father tested positive for COVID-19 as well, but has since been recovering.
