The Timberwolves initially believed Towns would need four to six weeks to recover from the injury.
The 27-year-old was averaging 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game before he was injured.
He recently started to ramp up his basketball action on the court, but only 3 1/2 weeks left in the regular season with the Timberwolves in the midst of a Western Conference playoff race.
