Patton will shift to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After starting six of the last seven games, Patton will make what's likely a permanent move to the bench as Christian Wood (ankle) returns from a long-term injury absence. The former first-round pick showed a few flashes of his rebounding and shot-blocking potential, but he's unlikely to be of much use in fantasy as long as Wood can stay healthy.
