The guy was in warmups before games late last season. He must have been re-injured? Had Surgery? What injury takes 2 years to heal unless it was reinjured and/or mishandled?

Greg Oden comes to mind. He had a spiral fracture that effectively ended his career and he never came back from.

Looks as if he was never able to get the knee right after the initial injury, surgery and rehab.

That's a terrible shame. Towns has been one hell of a player for you guys.

One of the smoothest great Ivy players I've seen. Hoping he eventually gets healed up enough to continue his basketball career. But it's definitely a bummer when these kinds of injuries occur.

For us older guys, anyone see the resemblance to Laurence Moten with a better jump shot?

A real shame he will not play again.

Ugh... really sorry to hear this. Just terrible for a kid to put so much in and not be able to get back (and a shame we won’t get to see the Harvard team that could have been). Really a fantastic player and hope he can recover and get back to the court on a high major team and get to the tournament.

ESPN’s Jeff Borzello tweets that Towns has officially entered the transfer portal:

Let's hope he can get healthy enough to play next season. Missing two entire years has got to be beyond frustrating.

Yeah... it's a shame that he has to go this route. If he had recovered and had gotten a full season, I don't think he would have gone the grad transfer route and instead would have just started his pro career. But now, it's worth the insurance of a two-year masters degree in case this injury hampers his long-term pro potential.
