Karl-Anthony Towns publicly shared his emotions about his mother, Jacqueline Cruz, being diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Unfortunately, neither that nor his $100,000 donation are Towns’ only direct connections to coronavirus.

His father, Karl-Anthony Towns Sr., also tested positive for COVID-19.

Malika Andrews of ESPN:

Hopefully, both of Towns’ parents recover quickly.

What an awful thing for anyone to go through.
