Q Where are you with your recovery? Justin Patton: I’m getting to the last stages of rehab, and then I’ll be able to get back on the court very soon.

I’ve been able to get a lot stronger with my upper body, which a lot of people know I need. I’ve seen a lot of good changes. It’s going to be good to actually have some muscle this time around.
