In an emotional video posted to his Instagram page on Tuesday night, Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns said that his mother, Jacqueline Cruz, is in a medically-induced coma after falling ill with coronavirus symptoms. The Timberwolves big man said both his mother and father, Karl-Anthony Towns Sr., fell ill last week.
After seeking medical attention and getting tested for coronavirus, Towns’ father felt better and was discharged. However, his mother’s condition worsened to the point where doctors put her on a ventilator before placing her into a coma. Towns noted that neither parent has received the results of their COVID-19 test yet.
