The Utah Jazz have waived Patrick Christopher (knee) on Tuesday.
He suffered a dislocated kneecap on Friday and that signaled the end of his brief stint with the Jazz. The move allows the Jazz to have another roster slot available and they are reportedly going to sign guard Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday. Christopher can be cut across the board.

Patrick Christopher has a dislocated right kneecap and will have an MRI once the swelling goes down, though no ligaments are thought to be damaged.

"He’s a tough kid," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after the game. "All the times that he’s competed to get a moment like this where he is playing in an NBA game in a significant way, to have that happen is really, really unfortunate." Even if he didn't damage any ligaments, Christopher should still be looking at some time on the sidelines but there is no need to speculate until we get the results of the MRI. Dante Exum was the main beneficiary in Friday's game and is worth a look in deeper leagues for his upside.

Patrick Christopher left Friday's game with a dislocated right kneecap and did not return.

This is obviously bad news and we're always bummed out when it happens to somebody trying to make their mark in the league. Ian Clark leads a group including himself, Steve Novak and Joe Ingles as potential beneficiaries, and Trevor Booker could be asked to slide over and play some small forward. Owners may want to have the Jazz game on to get ahead of the curve with Rodney Hood out for at least a week and Alec Burks out for the rest of the year.
Jan 2 - 9:28 PM

Patrick Christopher will start at shooting guard on Friday against the Hawks.

With Alec Burks (shoulder) out for the season there's a big void to fill and Christopher will get a chance to make his case for minutes tonight. He managed to get off eight shots in 13 minutes on Tuesday, so we know he's not bashful, and he's worth a look as a value play in Daily leagues. He needs to have a pretty big night to land on radars in ongoing formats.
Jan 2 - 8:16 PM

Patrick Christopher attempted eight shots in 13 minutes off Utah's bench on Tuesday, finishing 2-of-8 from the field for four points.

He also grabbed two rebounds but committed five personal fouls during his limited action, and has a steep learning curve while adjusting to the NBA. Alec Burks' season-ending shoulder surgery could open reliable minutes for Christopher, but he's only on the radar in the deepest of leagues.

Patrick Christopher made his NBA debut on Saturday vs. the 76ers, but failed to connect on his only shot attempt and added just one steal in six minutes.

It is great to see him make his debut, but he looked hesitant during his time on the court and likely won't be in the rotation anytime soon. You can safely ignore Christopher in almost all formats.

Jazz sign G Patrick Christopher.

He was with the Grizzlies over the summer and didn't make the team. Christopher is likely headed to the D-League.

Patrick Christopher has agreed to a non-guaranteed contract with the Grizzlies.

He had a similar deal with the Bulls last season and is now the 14th player on Memphis' roster. Christopher was named the D-League Performer of the Week back in April and will definitely get a camp invite in October. The 6'5" shooting guard is off the fantasy radar.
