This is bad news for Patty and Aussie NBA fans alike. On his very first day of practice for the summer league, Patty fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot and will have surgery on Monday.
Summer league was the big chance Mills had of convincing the Blazers he belongs in their rotation. Now it’s likely he won’t even be back in time for the pre-season comp.
I’ll keep this post updated as more news comes to light. For now, we just wish Patty all the best in his recovery. We want to see you on the court in that Blazers uniform as soon as possible!
UPDATE (16/7): Looks like Patty will be out for 4-6 months. This sucks.
