Patrick Patterson will start on Monday with Jerami Grant (right ankle sprain) ruled out.
Patterson will give OKC some more spacing on offense but shouldn't be viewed as more than a source of out-of-position threes in fantasy.

Patrick Patterson (nose) is available for Tuesday's matchup with the Blazers.
Patterson left Monday's game after taking an elbow to the face but is fine going forward. He's only playing spot minutes for the Thunder and is not a fantasy factor.

Patrick Patterson took an elbow to the face and was forced out of Monday's game, finishing with two points in nine minutes of action.
After the game Billy Donovan said he believed Patterson only suffered a bloody nose on the play but he'll be monitored by the medical staff just in case. Patterson is a classic stretch four but just doesn't play enough to be rostered in fantasy.

Patrick Patterson was the beneficiary of some garbage time in Saturday's blowout win over the Spurs, shining with 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting, four rebounds, three triples and two assists.
Even without Nerlens Noel (concussion), it's hard to put trust in Patterson due to his lack of consistent production. He's best used as streaming fodder when the Thunder have four or five-game weeks.

Patrick Patterson had 17 points in 29 minutes off the bench on 6-of-10 shooting in Sunday's win over the Suns.
He added four rebounds and two 3-pointers to the box score. He started the season as the starting power forward and has lost that spot to Jerami Grant, but he still has a huge bench role regardless and has the opportunity to put up solid numbers. He is worth a look in deep leagues for owners who need points and 3-pointers.

Patrick Patterson started in Tuesday's season opening loss to the Warriors, scoring seven points on 2-of-9 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, one steal and one block over 19 minutes.
Patterson looked mobile and that's pretty much all owners should need to pencil him into similar numbers from past non-injured campaigns. Last season he was a mess but looking forward he can be evaluated as a 9-cat producer in standard leagues.

Patrick Patterson started at power forward on Wednesday night and delivered seven points, five rebounds and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes.
Not bad, but not great either. Billy Donovan has said that he's not stressing over whether Patterson or Jerami Grant starts at power forward but he'd probably like it if someone created some distance in the competition. Grant played 27 minutes in this one but was an ugly 1-for-9 from the floor to finish with seven points, five rebounds and a block. Grant's blocks make him the preferred fantasy target even if PatMan starts as the duo will likely split time.

Patrick Patterson scored three points with two rebounds and two assists in 12 minutes of Wednesday's season finale against the Grizzlies.
Patterson's season took off slowly after August knee surgery and his minutes fluctuated pretty good until December. Despite the surgery, 2Pat played in all 82 games for the first time in his career but was basically done in by a drastic decrease in playing time. The stretch four and former plus-minus rockstar in Toronto saw his minutes cut from the mid-twenties to just 15.5 and plodded his way to a top-250 finish.
March 13, 2018, 7:18 pmSteven Adams - C - Oklahoma City Thunder
Steven Adams has been ruled out of Tuesday’s game with the Hawks because of a hip contusion he sustained last night.
With Adams out the Thunder will turn to Dakari Johnson in the starting five. He’s worth looking at if you really need rebounds but the Thunder figure to use more small lineups, which will benefit Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant.

Steven Adams (hip contusion) is listed as questionable for Tuesday’s contest against the Hawks.
Adams left Monday’s game against the Kings after 23 minutes with the injury making him highly questionable on Tuesday’s back-to-back. The fact that the Thunder are playing the lowly Hawks makes that even more likely. If he sits then Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant will split most of his minutes.

Talking to reporters after Monday’s game, Steven Adams said “we’ll see” on whether he’ll play against the Hawks on Tuesday.
Adams came into Monday’s game with a sprained ankle and even though he was able to gut it out he suffered another injury and was unable to finish the game. He has always been a warrior but with the Thunder facing the lowly Hawks, owners should prepare to be without him on Tuesday. The team usually starts Dakari Johnson in his place but you want to target Jerami Grant or Patrick Patterson instead since they will be getting the majority of minutes.

Steven Adams is being listed as questionable ahead of Monday’s date with the Kings because of a sprained left ankle.
The injury limited Adams to 17 minutes last night and the Thunder may not want to push it against a beatable opponent. If he sits, look for Dakari Johnson to start. The Thunder could also opt to go small and lean on Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant, and they’re the two guys to target either way.

March 11, 2018, 12:05 amSteven Adams - C - Oklahoma City Thunder
Steven Adams left Saturday’s game after just 17 minutes of action with a sprained ankle and did not return, finishing with eight points, one rebound and one steal.
This isn’t Adams’ finest work by any stretch of the imagination but the important thing right now is his status for next week. Owners could be in a bind without their middle-round center, and the Thunder don’t have much to offer in terms of a direct replacement. Nick Collison scored seven points in six feel-good minutes tonight while Jerami Grant hit all five of his shots and scored 15 points with eight rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench. Patrick Patterson scored 10 points in 21 minutes with four rebounds and a pair of threes, as well. Unless the Thunder opt to go incredibly small, it seems likely that they’ll bring Dakari Johnson back up to hold down the fort in minimal minutes as the starting center. If Adams misses time, however, Grant and Patterson are the guys you’ll want to look at the closest.

Patrick Patterson filled in admirably at the power forward spot on Saturday night, picking up 12 points, six rebounds, two threes and a block in 33 minutes against the Blazers.
Patterson got the call with Carmelo Anthony out and did what most owners were expecting — provide modest scoring with a handful of boards and some threes. He’s far from a flashy player but is an excellent resource for the Thunder and is a low-end option for out-of-position threes. The other candidate to start, Jerami Grant, brings more sizzle and was able to post 13 points, four rebounds, a 3-pointer and two blocks in 26 minutes. It’s clear which if the two has more to offer for fantasy owners.

With Carmelo Anthony getting the night off for rest purposes, Patrick Patterson will start at power forward against the Blazers on Saturday.
Patterson provides a little more switchability on defense and can stretch the floor nicely. Jerami Grant will be the other big beneficiary, though he’s more of a target if you need blocks.
