The Pistons have announced on Wednesday that Justin Patton has successfully undergone surgery to repair a fracture in his right pinkie finger.
Patton has not been able to make a splash in fantasy so far. Considering the Pistons are in off-season mode, hopefully his recovery time will not keep him from too much basketball action.

Justin Patton played five games for the Thunder in 2019-20 and ended up signing with the Pistons in late June, accruing per-game fantasy rankings of 478 in 8-cat and 482 in 9-cat.
Patton, a first-round pick in the 2017 draft, has struggled mightily with injuries and has bounced around in his young career. The Thunder had traded him to the Mavs in January. He might get a decent opportunity with the Pistons in 2020-21 but could ultimately find it difficult to find work if he struggles again or gets hurt.

A former first-round pick in the 2017 draft, Justin Patton has come to terms with the Pistons.
Patton has struggled throughout his time in the NBA, but it appears the center has landed himself another opportunity to earn a role with the Pistons next season. Several foot fractures never let the seven-footer get his career off the ground, but the Pistons have few long-term commitments in the backcourt, and Patton should have a chance to carve out minutes as a result if he plays well.

The Willie Cauley-Stein trade is now official as announced by both teams involved.
The Mavs get Cauley-Stein to fill the void of Dwight Powell's season ending injury while the Warriors have received Utah's 2020 second round pick. Dallas has also requested waivers on Justin Patton to create a roster spot for WCS. Stein was a top-100 player in 22.9 minutes on the Warriors and you would expect for him to get similar minutes on the Mavs so he is a hold. Maxi Kleber and Boban Marjanovic lose some value while Marquesse Chriss and Omari Spellman gain some.

Justin Patton and cash considerations have been traded to the Mavs for Isaiah Roby.
It's been a lost fantasy season for Patton who has appeared in just five games with the Thunder thus far. He will serve as a big back big for the Mavs now that they are without Dwight Powell. He is still not much of a fantasy asset, but keep an eye on him in case another injury occurs in Dallas.

Nerlens Noel (sore left ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic after not participating in practice on Tuesday.
Noel returned for the team's back-to-back set over the weekend but was scratched a few minutes before Monday's tip-off. Steven Adams (ankle) is also questionable for this one, and if neither can go, Mike Muscala and Justin Patton would be looking at extended minutes.

Justin Patton made his Thunder debut on Sunday afternoon, picking up two rebounds in six minutes of action.
Patton didn't play much despite basically a full half of garbage time, so he only makes blips on the radar in the deepest of dynasty formats.

Justin Patton grabbed seven steals and blocked three shots in addition to his two points and five rebounds in 19 minutes off the bench vs. the Mavs on Monday.
Patton, a former first-rounder hasn't done much of anything in the NBA yet, so he deserves credit for this one. He's unlikely to help any fantasy teams, but if Steven Adams gets shipped off, he could get some good minutes this season.

Justin Patton’s contract with the Thunder is a three-year, $5.3 million deal with $700 thousand guaranteed in year one and a non-guaranteed year two.
This deal is a low-risk flier for the Thunder who are getting a former first-rounder with some upside. Patton will start the season in a deep-reserve role but has the chance to crack the rotation.

The Thunder have signed C Justin Patton to a contract on Tuesday.
Patton will find himself in a deep-reserve role behind Steven Adams and Nerlens Noel with the Thunder. With the Thunder in the midst of a rebuild it wouldn’t be inconceivable for Patton, a former first-round pick in 2017, to find himself in the rotation should the team receive a suitable offer for Adams.

The Sixers have waived Justin Patton in order to make room for newly acquired Greg Monroe.
Patton wasn't on the radar for fantasy purposes. It is safe to drop him from your watch list.

Justin Patton made his season debut on Tuesday vs. the Magic, grabbing four boards and dishing three assists, but scoring just a single point in nine minutes.
This brings his career totals to two games and three points. The Sixers were down three centers tonight, though Jonah Bolden just missed the game due to illness, so there's not much of a chance he'll get consistent minutes.

Justin Patton is not expected to play Thursday against the Thunder.
Patton was just recalled from the Delaware Blue Coats on Wednesday to provide frontcourt depth with the injuries to Joel Embiid and Boban Marjanovic. With only Mike Scott, Jonah Bolden and Amir Johnson on the roster, there is an opportunity for Patton to fall into deep-league value.

The Sixers have recalled center Justin Patton from the Delaware Blue Coats and he will join the team in Oklahoma for Thursday night’s game against the Thunder.
Patton has failed to see the court due to multiple injuries to his foot but the Sixers do need him with Joel Embiid and Boban Marjanovic sidelined. He will provide emergency depth but it’s unlikely he has any impact.

The Wolves have traded Justin Patton to the Sixers.
The writing was on the wall for Patton in Minnesota as they declined his third-year option. He's currently recovering from right foot surgery, and foot injuries have limited him to just one NBA game in a season and change. There's no need to keep tabs on Patton, even in deep dynasty formats. He might have a tough time generating interest this summer.
