Fantasy Impact: Brown should be fine and will be ready for the start of training camp in October. The second-year player has a chance to make a jump this season as he should get more minutes in the rotation with the recent Celtics moves. Brown still needs to work on his offensive game and is not ready to be owned in standard fantasy leagues but should be looked at in Dynasty and deeper leagues.


Justin Patton suffered a broken bone in his left foot and will be out indefinitely. Patton was the No. 16 draft pick in this year's draft and was expected to back up Karl-Anthony Towns this season. The hope is for him to return for the start of the regular season. (Source: Timberwolves PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Patton is unlikely anyway to make a fantasy impact behind Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng. Nemanja Bjelica is the sneaky player to keep an eye on in fantasy this season.

Fantasy Impact: This is great news at it means Thomas will be ready to start the season for the Celtics. The point guard averaged 28.9 points, while also adding 2.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists, and 3.2 three-pointers last season. He should once again be a top 20 fantasy option in 2017-18.
