    Rockets' Justin Patton: To be waived

    Justin Patton will be waived by the Houston Rockets, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.With Christian Wood healthy and Kelly Olynyk also in the fold, the Rockets apparently feel that it's not worth it to keep Patton around. He appeared in 13 games and averaged 5.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 blocks in 19.0 minutes. After being drafted 16th overall in 2017, Patton has struggled to get his career off the launchpad. He's only played 22 total games across four different franchises. It wouldn't be surprising to see him end up on another rebuilding squad this season, but fantasy managers shouldn't have expectations of him being a consistent part of a rotation.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Exits rotation

    Justin Patton (coach's decision) went unused Monday in the Houston Rockets' 120-110 loss to the Grizzlies.Even with Christian Wood (illness) missing his second game in a row, Patton was unable to find a spot in head coach Stephen Silas' rotation. Recent trade acquisitions Kelly Olynyk (34 minutes) and D.J. Wilson (12 minutes) have both quickly moved ahead of Patton in the pecking order at center, leaving the 23-year-old no better than the fourth man on the depth chart when the team is at full strength.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Moving to bench

    Justin 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.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Uninspiring in loss Tuesday

    Justin Patton finished with just two points (1-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 119-107 loss to Atlanta.Patton's minutes took a hit in the loss and with Christian Wood (ankle) a chance to return on Wednesday, his time as a fantasy consideration could be coming to an end. Of course, there is a chance the Houston Rockets take a cautious approach with Wood which could allow Patton to see the floor enough to at least be viewed as a streamer on certain nights.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Blocks three in start

    Justin Patton delivered seven points (3-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt), six rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 23 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Celtics.The 23-year-old has been playing heavy minutes lately as the only healthy big man on the roster. He's been providing consistent numbers over the past six games, averaging 7.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.7 blocks while playing 27.6 minutes per game in that span. Until Christian Wood (ankle) returns to the lineup, feel free to stream Patton if you need blocks, rebounds and steals along with low-end points.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Blocks three shots in loss

    Justin Patton had seven points (3-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt), six rebounds and three blocks in Sunday's loss to Boston.Making a third straight start, Patton couldn't find his touch offensively, but he continues to supply solid defensive numbers in the absence of Christian Wood (ankle). Once Wood returns, Patton should sink back into a lesser role, but for now he's a potential streamer for his steals and blocks potential alone.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Quality defensive line in loss

    Justin Patton finished with 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, three steals, one block and one assist across 29 minutes Friday in the Houston Rockets' 114-99 loss to the Jazz.With Christian Wood (ankle) still on the mend and P.J. Tucker having left the team, Patton stepped in for his second straight start at center. The 23-year-old has shown an ability to cobble together defensive stats when given extended run, but he'll likely fall below 20 minutes most nights once Wood is back in the fold. Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Rockets head coach Stephen Silas is optimistic Wood could return to the lineup as soon as Tuesday against the Hawks, so Patton may only be in store for one more start (Sunday versus the Celtics).

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Back in starting lineup

    Justin Patton will start Thursday's game against Sacramento, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.Patton will receive his third start across the last four games as the Houston Rockets deal with some depth issues up front. In his two previous starts, Patton averaged 8.0 points on 46.2 percent shooting, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 steals across 28.9 minutes per game. With P.J. Tucker's status very much up in the air going forward, Patton could hold down the starting center spot until Christian Wood (ankle) returns.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Shifts to bench

    Justin Patton will come off the bench Wednesday against the Nets, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.The 23-year-old started the past two games at center for the Houston Rockets, but coach Stephen Silas will start small Wednesday with Jae'Sean Tate and P.J. Tucker in the frontcourt. Patton should still be plenty involved since the Rockets have only eight available players.

    Rockets' Justin Patton: Blocks two shots in starting role

    Justin Patton had 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds and two blocks in 26 minutes during Sunday's 134-85 loss to the Grizzlies.Patton shifted into the starting lineup, presumably as a means of matching up with the size of the Grizzlies. All-in-all, we would have to say that it didn't work given the team was defeated by almost 50 points. Despite being the only active center on the roster, his role is far too unstable to warrant a roster spot in 12-team leagues.
