2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 16th pick in the 2017 draft, Patton missed much of his rookie season while working back from a foot injury sustained during the summer of 2017. Patton ultimately played just four total minutes at the NBA level, but he was able to log 38 games for the Iowa Wolves of the G League, where he averaged 12.7 points and 5.4 rebounds in 23.1 minutes per game. Even before the injury, Patton was going to be a project player, but his developmental timeline has been pushed back even further after he required another surgery in April to re-address the previous foot issue. At this point, it's unclear when, exactly, Patton will be cleared for full basketball activities, but given the history of big men with serious foot injuries, the Timberwolves will likely exercise caution, meaning Patton is highly unlikely to be a Fantasy factor in 2018-19.

$Signed a two-year, $4.92 million contract with the Timberwolves in July of 2017. Timberwolves declined $3.12 million team option for 2019-20 in October of 2018. Traded to the 76ers in November of 2018.
Makes 2018-19 debut in G League

February 7, 2019
Patton (foot) played 12 minutes Tuesday in the G League Delaware Blue Coats' 119-108 loss to the Austin Spurs, contributing eight points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, three steals and one assist.
ANALYSIS
Sidelined since mid-September following surgery to repair a fractured right foot, Patton was cleared to resume practicing in the G League about a month ago and finally received the green light Wednesday to appear in a game for the first time in 2018-19. The low minutes total suggests that Patton still has a ways to go to regain full conditioning, making it likely that he'll stick around in the G League through the All-Star break. Since he's not a two-way player, he should join the 76ers once the organization is satisfied with his health, but the second-year center won't be a rotation player for the playoff-bound club.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Patton’s rookie campaign has gotten off to a rocky start, as he fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during a workload in early July. He underwent successful surgery, however, but hasn’t been given a timetable for return. When he’s healthy, he should be in line to see some run, as the Wolves have subpar depth at the center position behind star center Karl-Anthony Towns. Patton, after redshirting his first year of college, went on to earn Big East freshman of the year honors last season while averaging 12.9 points (on 67.7 percent from the field) and 6.2 rebounds per game. He possesses top-shelf athleticism, often running in transition and providing a whirlwind of dunks and blocked shots. That said, he can probably be avoided with no regret come draft day due to his projected role and injury situation.
