Coach Tom Thibodeau said that rookie center Justin Patton has been doing limited work at practice but has yet to play any contact basketball.
Patton has been sidelined since July, when he underwent surgery to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his foot. While his presence would give the Wolves some added frontcourt depth, don’t expect the team to rush his recovery. It’ll be a big hurdle for Patton to do anything of note in his first year.
