Patrick Patterson replaced Norman Powell in the Raptors’ starting lineup on Tuesday.
The Raptors have used six different starting lineup combos this season, but four of those combos have come over the last five games. Coach Dwane Casey is desperate to find a power forward who will stick to the starting lineup, so he started Patterson over Powell tonight. Raptors beat writers think this could be the answer. Patterson could carve out a role and is a decent pickup in standard leagues as an end of the bench guy.
