Patrick Patterson (knee) scored 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and and 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.
He's seen extended minutes at times, but it's been more about the lack of competition for minutes. He did play next to Serge Ibaka during this game and that'll continue, especially when the Raptors are trailing. He's not a fantasy option right now. Feb 24 - 11:35 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) is available to play on Friday against the Celtics, as expected.

The Raptors can take it easy on 2-Pat with Serge Ibaka as their starting four man. Patterson could get minutes late in games, especially when the Raptors are trailing. He lost a lot of fantasy value with the Ibaka addition.
Feb 24 - 6:33 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) looked good during Wednesday's practice, according to coach Dwane Casey, and he's expected to play on Friday.

Patterson missed the Raptors' final six games before the break, and he's had 12 DNPs in Toronto's past 19 games. His return to health is great news for the team's frontcourt depth, but most fantasy owners won't care now that Serge Ibaka has slotted into the starting PF job.
Feb 22 - 8:11 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

He'll likely be active for the first game after the break, but it's unclear what his role will look like with Serge Ibaka in the fold. Lucas Nogueira should be able to see his minutes in the mid-20s tonight with both Patterson and Ibaka on the sidelines.
Feb 15 - 5:52 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

Patterson has gotten in multiple full practices, but the Raptors continue to withhold him from games, so it feels as though they want him to sit for the final game prior to the All-Star break. With the arrival of Serge Ibaka, Patterson will be even more irrelevant than he already was.
Feb 15 - 5:38 PM

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

Patterson has been medically cleared to play, but he's still not 100 percent and it's all about pain tolerance according to coach Dwane Casey. Jakob Poeltl is getting the start tonight, but there's not much upside there. Serge Ibaka could make his debut on Wednesday vs. the Raptors, and his arrival should spell trouble for the fantasy outlook of Patterson.
Feb 14 - 7:58 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play vs. Detroit on Sunday.

Pascal Siakam and Lucas Nogueira will continue to pick up the slack in Patterson's absence, and Jared Sullinger could earn some minutes after being recalled from the D-League earlier in the day. Patterson reportedly looked good while practicing on Saturday, so it sounds like he could still return before the All-Star break.
Feb 12 - 4:54 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) is a game-time decision vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

Patterson looked good in practice on Saturday, which coach Dwane Casey said was "encouraging," so it's possible we'll see Patterson back after a three-game absence. Pascal Siakam and Lucas Nogueira could lose some minutes if he does return tonight.
Feb 12 - 4:28 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the Wolves on Wednesday.

This isn't surprising to hear with Patterson dealing with his nagging knee injury. Pascal Siakam has played well lately, but there should be a good amount of Lucas Nogueira against Gorgui Dieng. Bebe is worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 8 - 7:14 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Clippers.

This will be his second game out in a row. Patterson suffered a left knee contusion on Friday after just seven minutes. Patterson missed 10 games in January due to a left knee issue, so the Raptors will be cautious. Considering they are going up against Blake Griffin, there should be a good amount of Lucas Nogueira while Pascal Siakam could step up.
Feb 6 - 6:30 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

Patterson sat out on Sunday vs. the Nets and the Raptors gave Pascal Siakam 29 minutes in the first unit compared to 22 minutes off the bench for Lucas Nogueira. If Patterson misses tonight's game, we should also see a bit more of DeMarre Carroll as a small-ball four. This update is from the team's game notes, so hopefully we'll have something concrete soon.
Feb 6 - 1:29 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nets.

He went through a partial practice on Saturday, so he's likely day-to-day. His left knee has been an issue for a while, so it's not a surprise that he's sitting out against the worst team in the NBA. Lucas Nogueira should see the biggest bump in value with Patterson out, while we could see more of DeMarre Carroll at the four since the Nets are using more small-ball lineups.
Feb 5 - 10:44 AM

Patrick Patterson (knee) went through a partial practice on Saturday.

This is a slight positive for Patterson, who could not finish Friday's game due to knee soreness. He's had this knee soreness for over a month, so the Raptors will likely want to hold him out. If he is out, Lucas Nogueira should benefit the most while DeMarre Carroll figures to play a lot of time at the four to open up minutes for Terrence Ross in an up-tempo matchup. Jared Sullinger could also be a solution here.
Feb 4 - 4:12 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Brooklyn.

Patterson played less than seven minutes on Friday night before bruising his left knee, the same knee which had prevented him from playing in 10 of the Raptors previous 12 games. "He just couldn’t go," said coach Dwane Casey. Considering the knee has been bothering Patterson for over a month now, Toronto may choose to rest him in hopes that it heals properly. We can expect an update from the team after shootaround on Sunday. Lucas Nogueira and Jared Sullinger will soak up extra minutes if Patterson misses time.
Feb 4 - 10:12 AM

Patrick Patterson (left knee contusion) will not return on Friday vs. the Magic.

This is the same knee that's been bothering him all season, so he's likely going to spend some time on the sidelines. With Patterson out, expect to see a lot more Lucas Nogueira and Jared Sullinger. Nogueira is the better pickup in standard leagues.
