The Thunder hit it big by getting Paul George to re-sign, giving them a window with two superstars into what they hope is the next uncertain era of the West. Poorly-timed injuries ultimately prevented the…

Patrick Patterson has signed a one-year, $2.3M dollar contract with the Clippers.
After a very disappointing stint with the Thunder (3.8 ppg, 2.3 rpg) over the last two seasons, Patterson will head to the new-look Clippers as a depth piece. Patterson will have trouble breaking into the rotation with Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Montrezl Harrell, JaMychal Green, Maurice Harkless and Ivica Zubac all ahead of him in the rotation.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Thunder and Patrick Patterson have agreed on terms for a buyout for the final year of the forward's contract, allowing him to become a free agent.
Woj also mentioned that Patterson intends to sign with the Clippers once his buyout becomes official. He will provide another big body off the bench, but his days as a fantasy contributor are likely over.

Patrick Patterson has picked up his 2019-20 player option for $5.7 million.
29 year-old Patterson was off the fantasy radar this year as he played a career-low 13.7 minutes per game and he was wiped out of the rotation almost completely once Markieff Morris joined the team. Even with Morris likely moving on, Patterson's fantasy relevant days are likely over.

Patrick Patterson did not play in Wednesday's season finale, and finished the 2018-19 season with 63 games played.
Patterson averaged 13.7 mpg this season and just hasn't been the same due to knee injuries. His days of being on fantasy rosters are probably done, even in the deepest formats.

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.

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.
