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.
May 5 - 9:45 PM

Patrick Patterson started Game 2 but had just three points on 1-of-3 shooting, four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes.

The move didn't exactly pan out with Cleveland jumping out to a double-digit lead within seven minutes and eventually cruising to a 22-point victory. The Raptors' smaller lineup cost them on the boards, as they had just two rebounds in the first quarter, but this game was defined by the Cavs' incredible shooting display. It's far from certain that Patterson will earn another start on Friday.
May 3 - 10:06 PM

Patrick Patterson played through a toe injury on Tuesday and had eight points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Starter DeMarre Carroll played just 17 minutes tonight, while Pat-Pat played 30 and P.J. Tucker played 28 of them. Given that the Raptors won and Patterson had a good night, this trend could continue, although it's going to be hard to trust any of them in fantasy formats right now.
Apr 18 - 10:08 PM

Patrick Patterson left Tuesday's Game 2 vs. the Bucks with a jammed right big toe, but he's expected to return.

The training staff taped him up and he should be good to go the rest of the evening. Patterson got a lot of burn in the first half with six points, two triples, one rebound, one assist and a steal in 14 minutes.
Apr 18 - 8:34 PM

Patrick Patterson posted three points, one rebound and two steals in 15 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, as Toronto finished their regular season with a 98-83 win in Cleveland.

Serge Ibaka was the only player officially rested tonight, which bumped Patterson up in the rotation, but he didn't do much with the opportunity. He too was essentially rested down the stretch, with guys like Paskal Siakam and Lucas Nogueira seeing more minutes, so there's not much to glean from this game.
Apr 12 - 10:31 PM

Patrick Patterson got hot from beyond the arc during Sunday's win over the Knicks, draining three 3-pointers on his way to 15 points, three boards, one steal and one assist in 29 minutes.

Patterson is capable of posting a useful stat line every now and again, but in general, he's not bringing enough to the box score to warrant a roster spot in most leagues.
Apr 9 - 4:24 PM

Patrick Patterson was ejected in the fourth quarter on Saturday for two technical fouls.

The refs did blow the call on the ball going out of bounds and Patterson disagreed. He's not going to be suspended for this one and has seen his fantasy value drop with Serge Ibaka in the mix. He finished with five points, two rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.
Mar 11 - 10:02 PM

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.
