Towns said in an emotional video posted to his Instagram page on Tuesday that both of his parents went to the hospital after feeling ill for a few days.


While his father was discharged to quarantine, the health of his mother, Jacqueline Cruz, “kept getting worse” because her cough and fever weren’t improving.


Towns said in the video that he hopes his story helps others during the coronavirus pandemic and that “everyone understands the severity of what’s happening in the world right now.”


Our organization is supporting all of our players’ and staff’s families to ensure they are up to date on how to stay safe, and where the nearest testing facilities are located.


As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 460,000 people around the world had been diagnosed with the disease, with more than 20,800 fatalities, according to Johns Hopkins University.
