Patrick Patterson hit just 2-of-4 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, four rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in Wednesday's tough win over Memphis.
He has been playing a little better and had 16 points and five boards on Saturday, but never got it going tonight. With James Johnson out with a severely sprained ankle, Pat-Pat is going to get some nice run, and should be better on most nights going forward, as long as JJ is out. Nov 20 - 2:34 AM

Patrick Patterson scored 16 points in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers on 7-of-11 from the field.

He picked up some extra run with Amir Johnson getting his minutes in check for some reason. Patterson does have his fair share of impressive games, but the consistency hasn't been there for fantasy owners in most leagues.
Nov 15 - 11:17 PM

Patrick Patterson said he isn't a fan of the sleeved uniforms that the Raptors will be wearing against the Magic on Tuesday as the team honors the men and women in Canada's Armed Forces.

"A lot of guys are uncomfortable with it," Patterson said. "I wish I had known ahead of time that we were wearing those because I had no idea but it’s for a solid cause and I believe we’re doing it for the right reason but at the end of the day, I don’t like sleeves." While Patterson's fantasy value is due to take a hit now that Amir Johnson is back, Raptors' head coach Dwane Casey came through with the quote of the day regarding the uniforms. "I’m game for anything," Casey said. "I’m about winning. If we win with ‘em, we can wear bikinis if we have to."

Patrick Patterson started in place of Amir Johnson (ankle) on Wednesday and had 14 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers in Wednesday's win over the Celtics.

His 3-point shooting is something to take note of, but you have to think he's headed back to the bench once Johnson is back in action.
Nov 5 - 10:13 PM

Patrick Patterson is likely to start again on Wednesday in place of Amir Johnson (ankle), who didn't even make the trip to Boston.

He had a fantastic game in a start on Tuesday, scoring 14 points to go with eight boards, two assists, two 3-pointers, two steals, and one block in 36 minutes. If you are in a daily league, Patterson makes a lot of sense but he will only provide short-term value in standard leagues since Johnson is considered day-to-day. Tyler Hansbrough will also see a few more minutes on Wednesday but is not an option in almost any league.
Nov 5 - 11:35 AM

Patrick Patterson redeemed himself in another fill-in start at PF on Tuesday, scoring 14 points with a full stat line -- two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

He did his damage in 36 minutes and committed just one turnover, a far cry from his scoreless game in 15 minutes on Sunday. He probably wasn't in many lineups after that dud, but he's a decent plug-and-play option if Amir Johnson (ankle) misses any more games.
Nov 4 - 11:01 PM

Patrick Patterson will draw the start on Tuesday with Amir Johnson (ankle) sidelined.

Patterson was pretty horrible in his last outing, with his only contribution to the stat sheet being a steal and an assist over 15 minutes of action. Hopefully he can bounce-back on Tuesday night, but he's going to be splitting minutes with Tyler Hansbrough, and neither guy makes for a very enticing plug-and-play option in standard leagues.
Nov 4 - 6:13 PM

Coach Dwane Casey believes Patrick Patterson's offensive slump is beginning to impact his defensive play.

"A lot of times guys will let their offensive woes go to the defensive end," Casey said. "He had no rebounds and we’ve got to have him on the boards if Amir’s not there and he didn’t do that. Missing Amir was (a factor) but that can’t be an excuse. Someone has to step up." Patterson is shooting just 27.8% to begin the season.
Nov 3 - 10:06 AM

Patrick Patterson got the start over an injured Amir Johnson (ankle) on Sunday, but failed to score in 15 minutes.

He only had one assist and one steal to his name, as he simply couldn't get anything going. Amir Johnson (ankle) could come back any day, making it really tough to own Patterson in almost any league.
Nov 2 - 9:53 PM

Patrick Patterson will start in place of Amir Johnson (ankle) for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

As a starter last year, Patterson averaged 8.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers, and 1.3 steals, so he makes for a decent plug-and-play option.
Nov 2 - 5:54 PM

Patrick Patterson scored 17 points with seven rebounds, three 3-pointers and no turnovers in 21 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

He spaces the floor for the Raptors and his contributions don't always show up in the stat sheet. Patterson probably isn't worth drafting and won't have much value while Amir Johnson is healthy. Johnson had 13 points, eight rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes tonight.
Oct 10 - 11:29 PM

Patrick Patterson (hand) is being listed as questionable for Friday's preseason game vs. the Celtics.

Patterson has been targeting a Friday return, and he practiced in full on Thursday. He averaged 9.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.0 three-pointers per game last season with the Raptors, and he's not likely to improve upon those numbers in a reserve role.
Oct 10 - 6:51 PM

Patrick Patterson (hand) practiced in full on Thursday.

Patterson is also expected to play during the Raptors' exhibition game on Friday. He will continue his role as backup power forward behind Amir Johnson heading into the 2014-2015 regular season.
Oct 9 - 3:25 PM

Patrick Patterson is expected to rest again on Tuesday due to a sore right hand and sore right knee.

Neither injury is believed to be serious. Patterson's spot in the rotation is secure, though it looks like he'll once again come off the bench behind starting PF Amir Johnson. With any luck Patterson will return to action for Friday's exhibition vs. the Celtics.
Oct 7 - 3:34 PM

Patrick Patterson sat out Sunday's exhibition due to a sore right hand and sore right knee.

The Raptors open their preseason vs. the Kings, and Patterson's absence doesn't sound like anything to worry about. Until he's healthy, more minutes will be available for Amir Johnson, Tyler Hansbrough, Chuck Hayes and even rookie F Bruno Caboclo.
