Patterson gathered five points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and one rebound across 18 minutes Wednesday against the Bulls.

EDGE Analysis

Patterson's averaging career-lows in minutes (15.4) and points (2.9). Jerami Grant is seeing more opportunities than Patterson since Grant is averaging 9.1 points across 24.7 minutes this year. Patterson will likely continue this type of production deep into the season if Grant keeps playing well and sees more opportunities than him.

Patterson (knee) has been cleared to play in Thursday's regular-season opener against the Knicks, Royce Young of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Patterson had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee back in August, and while he wasn't able to participate in the preseason, he's now good to go for the opener. He'll start the season as Carmelo Anthony's backup at power forward, but he could be limited a bit until his conditioning is in order.

Patterson (knee) participated in non-contact work during Thursday's practice, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Billy Donovan said Thursday that Patterson is "moving closer to playing" every day, so it looks like the stretch four is making significant progress in his return from a knee injury. He should still be considered questionable to play in the team's season opener again the Knicks, but Patterson looks to be trending in the right direction.

Patterson (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Nuggets, Brett Dawson of the Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Patterson, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in August, continues to go through the recovery process, but is still not ready to be cleared for full contact and will now have missed the entirety of the preseason schedule. It currently remains to be seen if he'll be good to go in time for the regular-season opener on Oct. 19, though he'll have just over a week to get ready. Once available, Patterson is expected to serve as Carmelo Anthony's backup at power forward.

Patterson (knee) won't play Sunday's preseason game against Melbourne United, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Patterson still hasn't participated in contact portions of practice since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in August, so he'll understandably be withheld from Sunday's exhibition. He remains without a timetable for his return, but look for him to serve as Carmelo Anthony's backup at power forward when he's healthy.

EDGE Analysis

Patterson will miss a second straight preseason game as he continues to work his way back from arthroscopic surgery that was performed on his left knee in August. He remains without a timetable for his return, but seeing as it's only the preseason, it wouldn't be too surprising to see the Thunder continue to take a cautious approach with him. When Patterson does return, look for him to operate as Carmelo Anthony's backup at power forward.

Patterson (knee) will sit out Tuesday's preseason opener with the Rockets, Erik Horne of the Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Patterson has been limited throughout training camp so far while working back from arthroscopic surgery that was performed on his left knee in August. Considering it's only the preseason, the Thunder aren't going to rush him back, so they'll hold him out for the team's opener Tuesday. Once healthy, Patterson is expected to operate as Carmelo Anthony's backup at power forward, though the Thunder have yet to provide any sort of timetable and it's unclear if Patterson will return during the preseason.
