Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns reveals mom in coma with coronavirus

The coronavirus has struck the family of Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns.

In a nearly six-minute video posted on social media late Tuesday night, Towns revealed that his mom, Jacqueline Cruz, contracted the coronavirus and has been placed in a medically induced coma.

An emotional Towns sat in front of the camera and recounted the events of the last week.

Towns said his parents weren't feeling well last week, so he and his sister advised them to get tested for the coronavirus.

They went to the doctor, but his mom's condition didn't improve.
