Patton underwent surgery on his left foot in New York on Wednesday and has been ruled out indefinitely, Jace Frederick of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Patton, the 16th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, was never expected to contribute much for the Timberwolves as a rookie, especially after his start to the season was delayed while he recovered from the broken metatarsal in his left foot he suffered over the summer. The injury ultimately prevented Patton from playing in games until December, and it wasn't until April that he was promoted from the G League's Iowa Wolves to make his NBA debut. Patton said in February that he felt 100 percent healthy, but it appears the foot issue recently resurfaced in practice, amounting to another devastating setback to the big man's development. Considering Patton needed about five months to heal from his previous surgery, he's likely looking at a similar timetable this time around, putting his availability for training camp at risk.
Patton has been ruled out for Game 2 against the Rockets on Wednesday with a sore left foot, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports. Patton missed a bunch of time recently with an illness and while he appears to be over that ailment, he's now dealing with a sore left foot. That will keep him out of a second straight playoff game, though even when he's cleared, Patton isn't a part of the Timberwolves' regular rotation.
Patton (illness) will not play in Sunday's Game 1 against the Rockets. This will be Patton's third straight absence with an illness, and the specifics regarding the ailment have yet to be reported. Nevertheless, Patton's absence won't have any impact on the Timberwolves' rotation to start the postseason.
Patton (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Nuggets. It's unclear if Patton is still dealing with an illness or if he's simply just a healthy inactive, but either way, he won't touch the court Wednesday. Even if the Timberwolves beat the Nuggets and make the playoffs, Patton isn't expected to see the floor.
Patton (illness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies. Patton continues to work his way through an illness and is set to miss a second straight game as a result. However, Patton isn't a part of the regular rotation when he's healthy, so Monday's absence shouldn't have an impact in the fantasy realm.
