Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns will undergo surgery to repair a torn left meniscus and is expected to be back by early in the Western Conference playoffs, sources told ESPN on Thursday night.

Towns will be re-evaluated in four weeks, but the procedure is expected to give him the opportunity to return sometime in the early part of the postseason, sources said. The Timberwolves (44-19) are fighting for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, holding onto a half-game lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Towns will undergo the surgery early next week.
