Tom Thibodeau said that he is hopeful that second-year center Justin Patton will be cleared for contact in time to participate when training camp starts on September 25th.
The 16th pick in the 2017 NBA draft, Patton has played a mere 3 minutes and 44 seconds in the NBA because of two surgeries on the same foot and he is only a consideration in deep dynasty leagues. “He’s coming along well,” Thibodeau said of the 21-year-old from Creighton. “We think he has a huge upside. We’re excited about him, but we still know there’s a big learning curve ahead for him.”
