Rick Bonnell: Boris Diaw retired from basketball today. Nazr Mohammed told my favorite Boris-in-Charlotte story, related to his being a confirmed bachelor who enjoyed his lack of roots. Nazr was describing why NBA players get so stressed by the trade deadline: Uprooting kids from schools and families moving out of dream houses. Then he mentioned that didn’t apply to Boris, because his roots in Charlotte were a Segway and a suitcase.

Karl-Anthony Towns remains in concussion protocol and will not play for Minnesota against Milwaukee, a night after missing a game for the first time in his career. The All-Star forward was in a car accident Thursday and didn’t play Friday in New York, ending his streak of 303 consecutive games started. He traveled with the Timberwolves for the game in Milwaukee on Saturday, rather than return to Minnesota, but hadn’t been cleared to play again.

Storyline: Karl-Anthony Towns Injury
Being unable to play has troubled Towns, coach Ryan Saunders said. “People asked me if he cared about his [consecutive games] streak,” Saunders said. “He hasn’t and didn’t mention one thing along those lines. It was all about being there for his teammates and contributing. He even had somebody run out and make sure he could get a sport coat so he was dressed properly on the bench so he could be there with his teammates. That says a lot about Karl.”
