Patton (foot) suffered a broken right foot and will undergo surgery early next week, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press reports.

Patton was the 16th overall pick for the Timberwolves last year. However, he played just four minutes of NBA basketball after suffering a broken fifth metatarsal in his left foot, and he wasn't healthy until February. He experienced a setback after the season, requiring a second surgery on the same foot in mid-April. Now, while working back from that surgery, he's suffered a break in his other foot. Considering he'll need surgery again, he could be sidelined until the calendar turns to 2019.
