Patrick Patterson led Toronto's reserves with eight points in 26 minutes vs. the Cavs, hitting 3-of-8 shots with five rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Dwane Casey will use more small lineups by default with Jonas Valanciunas (fractured hand) out of commission. James Johnson went scoreless in five minutes, however, while Anthony Bennett picked up a DNP-CD, so right now the burden is falling to Patterson, Luis Scola and Bismack Biyombo. Patterson is worth a look in deeper leagues with his role expanding for roughly the next six weeks. Nov 25 - 11:12 PM

Patrick Patterson didn't do much at all during his 14 minutes of action on Sunday, tallying just two points on 1-of-2 shooting to go with five rebounds and two turnovers.

He wasn’t a factor today despite Jonas Valanciunas (hand) wearing a suit, although part of that could have been matchup based. Valanciunas isn’t going to come back any time soon (out at least six weeks), so Patterson will have some extended opportunity to produce. However, if he puts up another dud in the next game, those that made a speculative add would probably be best served returning 2-Pat to the waiver wire. Lucas Nogueira didn't even leave the bench, so he's not looking like someone who will benefit sans Jonas.

Patrick Patterson played 26 minutes against the Lakers on Friday with seven points, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He played six minutes at center in the second half and could be in line for more minutes while Jonas Valanciunas (hand) is out. Patterson has more upside than guys like Luis Scola and Bismack Biyombo, so he's probably the best pickup of the bunch. If you need a big with some treys, give him a look.

Patrick Patterson was shut out on six field goal attempts on Friday, finishing without any points, three rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes.

Patterson's nightmare season continues as he squanders opportunity to stand out against aging veteran Luis Scola (seven points, six boards, five assists, one trey). There's no reason to hang on outside of 16-team formats.
Nov 6 - 9:43 PM

Patrick Patterson scored 16 points with three rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers against the Bucks on Sunday.

He scored just 16 points in his first two games combined. Patterson will not be starting anytime soon, but that's fine as long as he gets his 24-26 minutes. He's worth owning in 14-16 team leagues despite a lower upside.
Nov 1 - 10:05 PM

Dwane Casey would like to keep Patrick Patterson in a bench role to give the second unit a scoring punch.

Patterson blew his chances of starting after a terrible showing in preseason, and the Raptors will continue to move forward with Luis Scola at power forward. After averaging just 8.0 points, 2.0 boards and 2.0 3-pointers through the first two games of the season, Patterson will only be a low-end asset in most leagues until further notice.

Patrick Patterson will come off the bench on Wednesday against the Pacers.

He finished his preseason going 0-of-7 in his last game and was out of rhythm with the starting lineup. Patterson should still get minutes close to 20, but isn't a strong fantasy pickup.
Oct 28 - 6:37 PM

Raptors coach Dwane Casey isn't worried about Patrick Patterson's poor showing in the preseason.

"Shooters never forget how to shoot, it’s like riding a bike, so he’s got to keep shooting it, get in the gym, get extra shots up, because that’s who he is," Casey said. "I’m not worried about [Patterson]." He averaged just 3.0 points and 2.1 rebounds per game while shooting just 27.6 percent from the field in the preseason, and there is a good chance that Luis Scola could steal his spot in the first unit.

Patrick Patterson said he isn't worried about his poor shooting performance in the preseason.

"Once my shot starts falling, I’ll be back in a groove," Patterson said. He was 0-of-7 from the field in Friday's preseason finale and hasn't been aggressive enough in previous games, while Luis Scola has been playing pretty well and actually started the last two games. Head coach Dwane Casey said he isn't worried about Patterson, but he still won't say who will open the season as the starter. Patterson is a late-round flier at best.

Patrick Patterson did not score in 20 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

He missed all seven shots from the field and grabbed four rebounds. Patterson is not playing well and he could find himself in the second unit. His upside isn't high anyway.
Oct 23 - 11:17 PM

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey still won't reveal who will start at power forward this season, though Patrick Patterson is still considered the favorite.

"Each player brings something good to the table," Casey said. [Patterson] brings his 3-point shooting. [Luis] Scola brings his experience and knowledge. [Anthony Bennett] brings his athletic ability, his defense. James Johnson brings a lot, defense is a strength, driving the ball." Patterson got off to a slow start during the preseason, but he could be a sneaky late-round pick if he wins the starting role.

The Raptors power forward starting spot is still up for grabs.

Patrick Patterson has not played well while Luis Scola has stepped it up. The Raptors haven't really played small forwards at the four like they said they would a month ago, but maybe that wrinkle is coming. Patterson isn't a great target despite being the favorite to start.
Oct 16 - 3:28 PM

Patrick Patterson managed just two points on 1-of-4 shooting in 15 minutes of action during Monday's preseason loss to the Warriors.

Patterson did steal the ball three times and we don't want to read too much into preseason action but it's his second straight dud so he needs to turn it around soon. His fantasy value isn't necessarily in big numbers, but the ability to provide serviceable numbers and good durability at the same time. At this point he's a late-round value at best.
Oct 6 - 1:19 AM

Patrick Patterson started at power forward for the Raptors during Sunday's preseason game, but failed to do much at all finishing with just four points, five rebounds, an assist and one turnover in 25 minutes.

Patterson also did not attempt a single 3-pointer in this one, but with the 35-year-old Luis Scola the only real threat to Patterson's spot in the starting lineup, it would seem the job is his to lose.
Oct 5 - 1:30 AM

The Raptors power forward starting spot is still up for grabs.

Patrick Patterson is likely the favorite while Luis Scola could also get in the mix. Patterson didn't thrive as a starter last season while Amir Johnson was hurt, so it may make sense to keep him in the second unit. He's only worth a late-round pick for owners who solidified their blocks and boards early on.
