Patrick Patterson said the starting power forward spot is "mine to lose" for the upcoming season.
"But it’s all about what coach [Dwane] Casey wants, what [general manager] Masai [Ujiri] sees, and who works hard and who earns it," Patterson said. He is working more on his low-post game to complement his ability to stretch the floor. Luis Scola is his competition, but expect the Raptors to go small. Two-Pat is worth a look late in drafts.

Patrick Patterson revealed that he'd prefer to start, but he's happy to play any role the Raptors ask of him.

"Of course I'd love to start. What NBA player wouldn't want to start?" Patterson's reiteration that he's willing to play any role for the Raptors so long as it's consistent is going to save him here, and with Amir Johnson's impending free agency, it's very possible Patterson gets his wish as soon as next season.
Apr 27 - 12:16 PM

Patrick Patterson scored eight points with nine rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes during a 92-74 win against the Hornets on Wednesday.

He put up a goose egg on Saturday and hasn't been playing well, but at least he's played 30 minutes or more in each of his last three games. Patterson figures to have better lines than this one going forward, so give him a look if you need some scoring and treys from a power forward.
Apr 8 - 10:10 PM

Patrick Patterson missed all seven shots from the field and didn't get to the free throw line against the Celtics, adding seven rebounds, two assists, two steals in 32 minutes.

Ouch. The minutes were there and he was open quite a bit, but he just couldn't connect. If Patterson gets 30 minutes, he'll be someone fantasy owners will want to use most nights. Amir Johnson is likely going to miss a couple more games.
Apr 4 - 11:55 PM

Patrick Patterson played 30 minutes against the Nets on Friday with 12 points, nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Amir Johnson (ankle) is dealing with his lingering ankle injury, so Patterson will likely see some extra playing time on Saturday. Patterson is a more capable offensive big man than any other Raptor and he is going to help space the floor, so he could score in the mid teens on Saturday against the Hornets.
Apr 4 - 1:03 AM

Patrick Patterson bounced back from a scoreless outing to notch 13 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and one steal vs. Detroit on Tuesday.

Patterson did his damage in 27 minutes of action, making 4-of-8 field goals and 3-of-3 free throws. He was a solid value with a bigger offensive role during DeMar DeRozan's absence earlier this season, but at the moment he's just a low-end source of 3-pointers, rebounds and FG percentage.
Mar 24 - 10:40 PM

Patrick Patterson said Raptors coaches want him to focus on rebounding the basketball.

"Coaches get on me about rebounding, they want me to rebound the ball," Patterson said. "They want me to go after every single ball whether it’s offense or defense, so those are really the only two things I’m focused on." Dwane Casey praised him after the game by saying he's one of the "best in the NBA at his defensive rotations." Patterson had eight rebounds in Sunday's win over the Knicks, but he went scoreless on 0-for-3 from the field. Simply put, you should be able to do better.

Patrick Patterson scored just six points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Tyler Hansbrough (three points, five boards, 27 minutes) stepped into Jonas Valanciunas' (wife/baby) role and the duo of Amir Johnson (13 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, 25 minutes) didn't benefit as they stayed within the bucket of PF minutes tonight. Both Patterson and Johnson flirt with late-round value but aren't must-own players.
Mar 13 - 11:38 PM

Patrick Patterson missed all three shots from the field against the Hornets on Friday with five rebounds, two assists and one block.

He played 27 minutes, so just three shots is a shocking outcome. Patterson's output has come to a screeching halt after putting another goose egg on Wednesday. He will likely have a few good games, but Patterson hasn't put together a good string of games in a little while. He's not quite worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 6 - 11:05 PM

Patrick Patterson scored 15 points against the 76ers on Monday during a 114-103 win with four rebounds, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

The second unit is now a lot thinner with Greivis Vasquez moving into the starting lineup. James Johnson has to play more at small forward, so there are plenty of minutes for Patterson now. He should be an under-the-radar winner from the Kyle Lowry injury and should have nice value in the next week or so.
Mar 2 - 11:08 PM

Patrick Patterson will move back to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Knicks, allowing Amir Johnson to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup.

Patterson scored just four points in a start against the Warriors on Friday, but head coach Dwane Casey probably needs his scoring punch off the bench. It's safe to leave Patterson on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 28 - 7:35 PM

Patrick Patterson started against the Warriors on Friday with four points, two rebounds and one turnover in 22 minutes.

This starting lineup usually crushes when it's on the court, but that wasn't the case tonight. Patterson's numbers probably won't change with the starters, but he'll obviously be better than this. He's more of a 14- and 16-team guy right now.
Feb 28 - 1:16 AM

Patrick Patterson will start over Amir Johnson on Friday.

It makes a lot of sense on offense to help space the floor for basically every other starter. Patterson's role shouldn't change too much and we're basically just going to see his minutes come next to different guys. Still, he has a nice upside and is worth a look in standard leagues in case he gets an extra 5-8 minutes tonight.
Feb 27 - 7:12 PM

Patrick Patterson returned from a sore left knee to finish Tuesday's road loss in Dallas with 12 points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, one assist and one block.

He shot 5-of-11 from the field in 28 minutes of action and the knee injury doesn't seem likely to limit him going forward. Pat-Pat's steady contributions in 3-pointers (1.5), rebounds (5.3), steals (1.5) and blocks (0.7) have been enough for mid-round value over the past few months, especially since he shoots well from both the field and the FT line.
Feb 24 - 11:42 PM

Patrick Patterson (left knee sprain) will play on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

Patterson wasn't able to play on Monday against the Pelicans, but the fact that he is returning after just a one-game absence suggests that his injury is likely minor. With season averages of just 8.5 points, 5.5 boards and 1.4 3-pointers in 26.5 minutes per game, his value is limited to deeper leagues.
