Timberwolves' Justin Patton: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patton (foot) underwent successful surgery on Tuesday.

Prior to the surgery, the Timberwolves declared Patton out indefinitely. After the surgery, that hasn't changed. Considering he played just one NBA game as a rookie after breaking his other foot around this same time last year, a similar situation could be in store this time around.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: To discuss future with Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler will be meeting with coach Tom Thibodeau and general manager Scott Layden on Monday to "have honest conversations about [Butler's] future with the team," Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

Butler, who is in the final year of his contract, turned down a four-year, $110 million extension from Minnesota in mid-July. That news added to the already swirling rumors that the organization and Butler were not seeing eye-to-eye. Now, it appears the two sides will sit down and have a formal meeting about his future as part of the Timberwolves. Considering Butler's impending free agency, it's possible the team could look to trade the All-Star while they still can in order to get a return, rather than him potentially walking next summer. Though Butler has an injury history, he'll be entering his age 28 season and is coming off 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals per contest, making him a hot commodity in the open market. It's possible information about the meeting itself will emerge Monday or later in the week.

Timberwolves' Justin Patton: Breaks right foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patton (foot) suffered a broken right foot this 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. The seriousness of the injury hasn't been disclosed, but Patton may require surgery, which could keep him out until February again in his second season.
