Minnesota’s 2017 first-round draft pick Justin Patton has suffered another broken foot, this time in his right foot, league sources tell me and @JonKrawczynski.

It marks the latest setback for Patton, who was limited to just four minutes as a rookie last season after breaking his left foot after the 2017 draft, in which the Wolves took him 16th overall out of Creighton.
