Patrick Patterson went for 14 points over 35 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 win against the Grizzlies.
Patterson was seeing a bigger role with more offensive responsibilities with Carmelo Anthony (ankle) sidelined. The Thunder were also without Russell Wesbrook (ankle), so someone had to soak up the usage with Paul George. Even in a starting role Patterson has rather limited fantasy appeal in seasonal play, but he is worth a look as a low-cost DFS option Tuesday against the Cavaliers should 'Melo be sidelined again.

Patrick Patterson started the second half in place of Carmelo Anthony (ankle) on Tuesday vs. the Warriors, scoring four points on 1-of-6 shots with four rebounds, one assist and three steals in 30 minutes.

Even if Melo misses Thursday's game vs. the Lakers, Patterson simply doesn't have any upside in OKC with Russell Westbrook and Paul George soaking up most of the usage. Leave Patterson on the wire.

Billy Donovan said after Sunday's loss to the Lakers that he wants to try and find more minutes for Patrick Patterson.

Patterson finished Sunday's game with just three points, one assist and one triple over 12 minutes, but Donovan might be getting antsy after OKC's fourth consecutive loss. That said, Patterson would probably only be able to earn minutes in the 20s in an ideal scenario, which still isn't really enough time for him to make a difference in most leagues.

Patrick Patterson (right wrist injury) is a game-time decision on Thursday.

Patterson will see how he feels during warmups before making a decision. He's averaging a modest 14.6 minutes per game this season, most of which should go to Jerami Grant if Patterson can't go.

Patrick Patterson (wrist) is not a lock to play on Thursday vs. the Wizards.

He picked up the injury when he fell on his wrist on Tuesday, but he practiced on Wednesday and an MRI came back clean. He did go through the morning shootaround, but he still has some soreness and it sounds like he'll end up being a game-time call. He's averaging less than 15 minutes per game, but his potential absence could open up some minutes for Jerami Grant.
Jan 25 - 12:21 PM

An MRI revealed no structural damage to Patrick Patterson's wrist.

Patterson fell on his wrist during Tuesday's game, but played through it and was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, so he should be fine. That said, as long as Carmelo Anthony, Paul George and Steven Adams are healthy, Patterson will remain irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Jan 24 - 5:57 PM

Patrick Patterson logged 17 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring eight points with two assists, one rebound and a pair of 3-pointers.

Patterson went 2-of-3 from the field overall, and 2-of-2 from the line, and this is representative of his current role in OKC. The Thunder rank 29th in bench scoring, ahead of only the Thunder, and Patterson belongs on the waiver wire while Paul George, Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams are all healthy.
Jan 8 - 12:07 AM

Patrick Patterson scored 12 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

He did play big down the stretch tonight and on Friday after Steven Adams (concussion) fouled out, as well. If Adams is going to miss more time, Patterson could see minutes in the 20s now that he's healthy -- he wasn't really 100 percent in the last stint Adams missed. He's worth a look in deeper leagues until Adams gets cleared.

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.

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.
Sat, Nov 11, 2017 01:00:00 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.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 01:18:00 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.
Thu, Oct 19, 2017 06:24:00 PM

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,
Wed, Oct 18, 2017 02:56:00 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.
