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.

To be waived by 76ers

April 3, 2019
Patton is expected to be waived by the 76ers to make room for the signing of Greg Monroe, Jordan Schultz of ESPN reports.
Patton only played 21 total minutes for the 76ers this season, and the team will opt to move on in favor of the more experienced Monroe. It's possible a team takes a chance on Patton down the stretch, but the 2017 first-rounder remains a developmental prospect, due in large part to injuries over the last two seasons.

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.
