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.

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.

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.
Oct 2 - 2:29 PM

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.

Patterson had an arthroscopic scope his left knee on Aug. 10. The Thunder termed the procedure "proactive" and said there was no structural damage to the knee. At the time, it was announced that he would be reevaluated 4-6 weeks after the surgery. However, according to the report in The Oklahoman, there is no update on a timetable for his return. We should get a complete update at OKC's media day next Monday.

Patrick Patterson underwent a successful scope on his left knee on Thursday.

He will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks, so we'll consider him questionable for training camp. He did struggle with his knee last season, so hopefully those concerns will be in the rearview mirror. Recently signed to a three-year, $16.4 million deal, Patterson actually has a decent path to minutes in OKC, as his competition for minutes at the four consists of Jerami Grant and Nick Collison. He averaged 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 triples in just under 25 minutes per game last season, so his upside isn't the greatest.
Aug 10 - 12:42 PM

Patrick Patterson has agreed to a 3-year, $16.4 million deal with the Thunder.

It's a nice signing for the Thunder, as Patterson should fill the void left by Taj Gibson. Patterson will likely be the second big off the bench and could be looking at minutes in the upper teens to lower 20s, so he's unlikely to help standard-league owners. In Toronto last season, Patterson averaged 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 triples in just under 25 minutes per game. The third year of the deal is a player option.
Jul 4 - 10:07 PM

The Kings met with free agent PF Patrick Patterson on Saturday morning.

The Kings probably won't be too competitive while they rebuild for at least the next few years, so Patterson would likely be looking at a sixth man role off the bench behind Skal Labissiere in Sacramento. A deal with the Kings isn't imminent, but they are the only team besides the Raptors that have been linked with him so far. There are several high-profile power forwards on the market still, so Patterson's camp may have to be patient. He averaged 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 2016-17, so a move away from Toronto would be likely be a good thing for his fantasy value.
Jul 1 - 3:37 AM

Patrick Patterson said he would like to re-sign with the Raptors this summer.

"Of course, but at the end of the day guys have said ‘I want to be a Raptor,’ ‘I want to be back’ and at the end of the day they don’t, they go elsewhere," Patterson said. "So, me saying yes right now really doesn’t matter so we’ll see what happens." In other words, the free agent understands that he probably will have to move on this summer -- the Raptors have three other free agents in Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker that they will likely prioritize first. Patterson was a little disappointing in 2016-17, averaging 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 rebounds. He also played just 65 games and couldn't seem to shake his knee issue. A move away from Toronto would likely be a good thing for his fantasy value.

Patrick Patterson had a 0.0 usage rate in 20 minutes off the bench on Friday, adding one rebound, one assist and one block.

Not great. The Raptors did use Serge Ibaka at the four more than they did in Game 2, so it'll be tough for Patterson to get decent minutes. They were also trailing in the fourth and really needed threes in a hurry, so Patterson may have only been looking at around 13 minutes had the game been close. Obviously, he didn't get those chances for threes.
