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.

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.

Patrick Patterson has signed a three-year, $18 million deal with the Raptors.

Patterson is a solid backup for Toronto, and he had a great stretch last season when Amir Johnson went down with an ankle injury. The signing leaves Toronto with about $7.5 million to spend while remaining under the cap, and they still have yet to retain backup point guard Greivis Vasquez. Two-Pat is a solid signing for the Raptors, but playing behind Amir Johnson and Jonas Valaciunas significantly hinders his fantasy appeal.
Jul 4 - 1:27 PM

The Raptors have made a qualifying offer to Patrick Patterson to make him a restricted free agent.

Two-Pat helped himself last year while Amir Johnson was out with an ankle injury, but he did slow down with some struggles in the mid-range game. Patterson is probably going to stay put in Toronto and is not worth owning in most fantasy leagues while Jonas Valanciunas and Johnson are healthy.
Jun 28 - 12:11 PM

The Raptors can make Patrick Patterson a restricted free agent this summer by making him a $4.3 million qualifying offer.

It should be an easy decision for the Raptors to retain one of their most valuable bench pieces. Showing an ability to score in bunches when needed, Patterson averaged 9.1 points and 51. rebounds on 47.7 percent shooting during the regular season. He's also been solid through two playoff games at 10.5 points and 7.0 boards. The problem for his fantasy upside is that the Raptors project to retain Amir Johnson at $7 million guaranteed for the 2014-15 season.
Apr 25 - 9:59 AM

Patrick Patterson moved back to the bench against the Knicks on Friday, scoring six points with two boards, one assist and two turnovers.

He didn't play very well while Amir Johnson was out and only took advantage of a great matchup against the Sixers. Patterson can be cut in almost all leagues.
Apr 11 - 10:47 PM

Patrick Patterson played well in place of Amir Johnson (ankle) and had 17 points, five rebounds, three blocks and three 3-pointers on 7-of-11 shooting.

If you saw that Amir was out and made the move to get Pat-Pat into your lineup, congratulations are in order. If Johnson misses more time, Patterson looks like a great option in all formats.
Apr 9 - 10:59 PM

Patrick Patterson scored five points with seven rebounds, two steals and a three on Friday.

Patterson logged 25 minutes with Amir Johnson (ankle) out and though he didn't play great it's possible the Raptors slowly increase his workload to give Johnson a much needed rest. Keep an eye on him or in a deep league consider him as a speculative add.
Apr 4 - 10:06 PM

Patrick Patterson will start in place of Amir Johnson (ankle) vs. the Pacers on Friday.

He was on a minutes count earlier this week due to his elbow injury, but played 26 on Wednesday after Amir tapped out in the first three minutes. Patterson's matchup isn't the greatest tonight, so he's a lukewarm start on a very busy NBA night.
Apr 4 - 6:43 PM

Patrick Patterson had eight points, two rebounds, one block and one steal in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.

Amir Johnson started, but lasted just three minutes before his troublesome right ankle knocked him out. Patterson ended up playing 26 minutes compared to 18 for Tyler Hansbrough. Even if Amir misses more time, we wouldn't be running to the wire to add PatPat. He's at 8.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 0.2 blocks in 10 starts this season.
Apr 2 - 10:58 PM

Patrick Patterson played eight minutes in his return from an elbow injury on Monday with two points and one rebound.

He must not be back to himself and committed three fouls in the loss. Patterson had a good run earlier this season while Amir Johnson had an ankle injury, but he won't have much value in almost any league now that Johnson is healthy.
Mar 31 - 11:33 PM

Patrick Patterson (elbow) has been cleared to play against the Heat on Monday.

His UCL injury has kept him out since Mar. 7 and it's unclear how much playing time he'll see. Patterson did some 3-on-3 work over the weekend, so he has been able to keep his conditioning up in some capacity. He's still too risky to use in fantasy leagues while Tyler Hansbrough is not an option.
