Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the 76ers on Wednesday.
His knee injury has kept him to just two games in 2017. Luckily for the Raptors, they have Jared Sullinger (foot) back for limited minutes -- he's likely only going to play 10-15 minutes tonight. The Raptors will also likely go smaller tonight while Pascal Siakam could play 20 minutes. None of these guys mentioned are worth using in standard leagues. Jan 18 - 6:17 PM

Date:

Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

This will be his third straight game on the sidelines, and his absence essentially ensures that Lucas Nogueira will get another start at the four-spot. Nogueira is worth owning as a shot blocking specialist in most leagues, while Patterson isn't worth a roster spot almost anywhere.

Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Sunday vs. the Knicks.

He will miss his second game in a row, but the Raptors are likely being cautious based on coach Dwane Casey's comments earlier in the week. With Patterson out, the Raptors are going to roll with Lucas Nogueira at the four, but that might not be ideal if the Knicks start Lance Thomas in place of Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles). Nogueira had 10 points, nine rebounds, four blocks and two assists in his last start.

Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

Patterson returned to play two games earlier this week but was then forced to sit out Friday night, although coach Dwane Casey said that it is more of a precaution. Lucas Nogueira started in place of Patterson on Friday, finishing with 10 points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes. Pascal Siakam or Norman Powell could also see increased minutes, based on matchups, if Patterson misses more time.

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play Friday against the Nets.

Coach Dwane Casey said that it is more of a precaution. He didn't exactly look right with 21 minutes and going scoreless on Tuesday. Against Trevor Booker at the four, the Raptors could be looking at Lucas Nogueira as the starter. They could also go with more small-ball lineups against the fastest team in the NBA.
Jan 13 - 5:52 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) did not practice on Thursday.

He still has minute restrictions, so this was likely a rest day. Patterson moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. Boston, but failed to score in 21 minutes. Standard-league owners can do better and Patterson's outlook isn't great due to the eventual return of Jared Sullinger (foot).
Jan 12 - 1:28 PM

Patrick Patterson is starting on Tuesday vs. Boston, sending Norman Powell to the bench.

This is Patterson's first start of the season, but he's really just in there for his defense and floor spacing. As long as his shot is falling, Patterson is a low-end option in most formats. The PF position will be fluid from game to game until Jared Sullinger (foot) returns.
Jan 10 - 7:26 PM

Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) returned from a four-game absence on Sunday, playing 22 minutes to finish with eight points, seven rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

The Raptors and Rockets rank 2nd and 3rd in offensive rating this season, respectively, and tonight's game was predictably high-scoring -- it resulted in a 129-122 road win for the Rockets. Patterson was on a minute-limit tonight but that should be lifted very soon, and he's a viable low-end option as long as his shots are falling.
Jan 8 - 9:25 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will play vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

Patterson missed four games due to a strained left knee and his return gives Toronto welcome depth in the frontcourt. No matter who starts at PF tonight, Lucas Nogueira or Pascal Siakam, Patterson should slide back into his role as the primary backup PF.
Jan 8 - 4:50 PM

Pat Patterson (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

It will be his fourth game out of the lineup for the left knee strain. With Patterson out on Thursday, the Raptors went with Lucas Nogueira at power forward, which could be in play for tonight against Taj Gibson. Nogueira is worth a long look in standard leagues.
Jan 7 - 6:37 PM

Patrick Patterson (strained left knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

Patterson has missed three straight games due to his knee injury. Lucas Noguiera started at power forward, alongside Jonas Valanciunas, and played 26 minutes in the Raps last game on Thursday. Pascal Siakam and Jakob Poeltl saw only four and six minutes, respectively, off of the Toronto bench.

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Thursday.

It will be his third game out of the lineup. The Raptors had to go somewhat bigger against the Spurs in their last game, which led to more run for Pascal Siakam, Lucas Noguiera and especially Jakob Poeltl. Nogueira is probably the best stream of the bunch, but none are reliable fantasy punts in a bad matchup.
Jan 5 - 6:02 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

This will be his second game in a row on the shelf, but strangely enough the Raptors are saying he has a left ankle sprain as opposed to a strained left knee which kept him out last game. When Patterson was out of the lineup on Sunday vs. the Lakers, Pascal Siakam played 31 minutes with three points, 10 rebounds and four blocks, while Jakob Poeltl entered the rotation and played nine minutes. If you need a short-term option in deeper leagues, Siakam is the player to target.
Jan 3 - 7:44 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) did not participate in shootaround and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in San Antonio.

Patterson was injured Last Thursday and sat our Sunday's game vs. the Lakers. Pascal Siakam saw a season-high 31 minutes on Sunday and would likely be in line for plenty of playing time on Tuesday as well if P-Patt does not play. However, even with 30-plus minutes of court time, Siakam is not an appealing fantasy option, as he is averaging just 9.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per-36 minutes this season
Jan 3 - 1:05 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

With Patterson (knee) sidelined, Pascal Siakam and DeMarre Carroll will see the majority of the minutes at power forward.
