The Timberwolves have been hit especially hard by coronavirus.

Karl-Anthony Towns’ mother, Jacqueline Towns, died due to COVID-19.

Malik Beasley is also grieving the loss of a relative.

Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic:

Beasley said a family member on his mother’s side, whom he did not specify, died as well. Like Jackie, Beasley said his relative started with a simple cough, but eventually had to be put on a ventilator and was never able to recover.

“It’s been tough for all of us as a family,” Beasley said. “The best thing we can do is prevent that and communicate with each other. Phone calls, I try to call my grandma every day. I don’t know what can happen. I try to just do little things and give them my love.”

Our sympathy to Beasley and his family.
