    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.

    The Wolves are declining Justin Patton's third-year team option.

    Patton was the 16th overall pick in round one of the 2017 NBA Draft by the Bulls. He was traded on draft night to Bulls along with Jimmy Butler. So far the big man has only played in one NBA game due to a broken foot that needed surgery. The center is unlikely to make an impact in 2018-2019.

    The Wolves announced today that center Justin Patton underwent successful surgery to repair the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

    Patton will be sidelined indefinitely and further updates to his progress will be issued when appropriate. He has managed to play in just one game for Minnesota so far after being acquired along with Jimmy Butler last year. Patton has a long road ahead as this is looking like another lost season for the young big man.

    Wolves backup center Justin Patton broke his right foot during a workout this past week according to the Athletic.

    Patton hasn't played because of two surgeries on his left foot and that sound you hear is a Wolves employee deleting Joakim Noah's phone number from Thibs' flip phone.

    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.”

    Justin Patton, already ruled out for Summer League, will likely remain sidelined through most of the fall.

    Patton was hobbled by a foot injury for pretty much all of his rookie season and underwent another surgery to "encourage healing." The Wolves are pretty loaded on the front lines anyway so Patton wasn't shaping up as a fantasy option regardless of health.

    Justin Patton will miss Summer League after undergoing a second surgery on his foot.

    Patton missed most of his rookie season because of a preseason foot injury, and it looks like he'll be behind the eight ball again. It's disappointing that the Wolves won't get a look at him in the summer session, as he was already in tough to see real minutes with Thibs at the helm.

    Justin Patton is sidelined indefinitely after undergoing surgery on his left foot Wednesday.

    Patton, the No. 16 pick in the draft, broke his foot shortly after being selected last summer and was out until December. After returning and playing solely in the G-League, Patton got in for one game with the Timberwolves after the G-League season concluded. The young seven-footer is considered to be a fit for today's NBA game as a center with his length, athleticism, and slight ability to shoot outside. Coach Tom Thibodeau does not like to give younger players minutes so we may have to wait a long time until Patton sees heavy minutes.
