Patrick Patterson finished with six points, a rebound and an assist in Friday's loss in San Antonio.
Patterson connected for 2-of-3 from the floor, including 2-of-2 from behind the arc, producing well in limited action when Carmelo Anthony and Paul George needed a spell. However, Patterson's fantasy upside is rather limited as long as Melo and PG-13 are healthy and available. Nov 18 - 12:22 AM

Patrick Patterson didn't score in 11 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

Even with Steven Adams (calf) out, the Thunder just can't play Patterson at the five.
Nov 11 - 1:00 AM

Patrick Patterson scored three points with one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He's really not a fit on this team anymore because the team signed him before they thought they'd have Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. If Steven Adams (leg) is hurt, Patterson could play more minutes, but he really can't be counted on in fantasy.
Nov 10 - 1:18 AM

Patrick Patterson played seven minutes on Thursday with no points and two rebounds.

He played 2.2 minutes at power forward and the rest as the backup five man. Patterson returned to action sooner than usual, but this offense-first stretch big simply won't get enough shots in this offense.

Patrick Patterson (knee) is good to go for Thursday against the Knicks.

After going through contact in practice on Wednesday, Patterson will be all set without restrictions. The Thunder are likely going to try to stagger their forwards, which likely means there won't be many minutes available for Patterson.

Patrick Patterson (knee) did contact portions at practice on Wednesday.

He is still up in the air to play on Thursday night against the Knicks. The Thunder may not need him to play too much now that they have some options at the four, so he's not worth owning in fantasy,
Oct 18 - 2:56 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) went through the contact portions of Tuesday's practice.

This it the first time Patterson has gone through contact work at practice, so maybe he'll be able to get out there for Thursday's season opener against New York. However, as long as Carmelo Anthony and Paul George are healthy, Patterson won't be receiving many minutes in OKC's rotation.
Oct 17 - 3:33 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) went through some non-contact work on Thursday.

Coach Billy Donovan said Patterson is getting closer to playing every day. His knee scope likely makes him questionable to play in the opener, but the Thunder won't need him while Carmelo Anthony and Paul George are healthy.
Oct 12 - 3:46 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Encouragingly, it sounds like Patterson is making progress in practice. Per the report: "Patterson was moving well as he did lateral slide drills and defensive closeouts to the perimeter. He also did some post-practice banging in the post with assistant coach Mark Bryant." Patterson will get minutes off the Thunder bench once healthy, but his very limited fantasy value playing behind Paul George and Carmelo Anthony.

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Friday.

He is recovering from his knee scope from back in August. With the Thunder set to play Paul George and Carmelo Anthony at the forward spots, Patterson's opportunity has taken a big hit after it was viewed an interesting signing back in July.
Oct 5 - 5:55 PM

Patrick Patterson (left knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason game against the Rockets.

Patterson could miss a large chunk of the preseason as he rehabs from offseason knee surgery. He won't be a fantasy factor this year, fighting for reserve minutes in OKC with Jerian Grant.

Patrick Patterson (knee) did not participate during Sunday's scrimmage.

He's still recovering from knee surgery, and he'll likely miss some preseason games as well. Patterson will play limited minutes behind Carmelo Anthony this season, so he can't be considered a viable fantasy target in any setting.
Oct 1 - 3:35 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) was limited in practice on Wednesday.

He did not practice on Thursday and is still recovering from his offseason knee surgery. With Carmelo Anthony expected to start at the four and Patterson not really a capable five man on defense, it'll be tough for him to get consistent minutes.
Sep 27 - 3:37 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) did not practice on Tuesday.

He's still recovering from an arthroscopic procedure to his left knee, so he'll likely be limited throughout training camp. Carmelo Anthony will be OKC's starting four-man this season, so Patterson will be fighting for the reserve minutes with Jerami Grant. As long as the main guys in OKC are healthy, Patterson won't have any fantasy value.
Sep 26 - 3:56 PM

Patrick Patterson's rehab following knee surgery has been "progressing well," according to a Thunder official.

We should get a complete update at OKC's media day next Monday.
