Patterson had 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and six rebounds across 21 minutes in Friday's win over the Rockets.
Patterson moved to the starting lineup due to the absence of Marcus Morris (rest), and he performed well, scoring in double digits for the second time over his last five appearances. That said, Morris should return to the starting five Monday at New Orleans, meaning Patterson would head back to the bench.
Patterson is a late addition to the Clippers' starting lineup for Friday's matchup with the Rockets, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Patterson will replace Marcus Morris (rest) in the starting five. He has averaged 6.7 points and 2.0 rebounds across 20.6 minutes in three starts this season.
Patterson played 14 minutes off the bench and contributed 18 points (6-8 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one block and one steal during Friday's 106-103 loss to the 76ers.
Friday was only the third time this season that Patterson had scored in double figures as his 18 points and five three-pointers were both tops this season. Patterson, even with the hot hand, could not top 15 minutes of playing time. While the outburst was nice for the Clippers, he can not be counted on to post this kind of performance on a nightly basis, especially when Kawhi Leonard (foot) gets healthy.
Patterson will start Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
The 32-year-old will make his third start of the season with Marcus Morris (rest) a late scratch for Wednesday's contest. Patterson averaged 10.0 points and 2.0 rebounds over 23.0 minutes in his two previous starts this season.
Patterson provided seven points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one steal and one block across 17 minutes Sunday in a 104-86 win against the Lakers.
Patterson has now played in five games for the Clippers since recording his last start at San Antonio on March 25. The veteran is averaging 5.8 points and owns a 47.4 shot percentage across that five-game span. Patterson seems back to supplying little value with limited upside.
Patterson will come off the bench Saturday against Philadelphia, Garrett Chorpenning of SI.com reports.
The 32-year-old started Thursday and scored seven points in 26 minutes, but he'll move back to the bench with Marcus Morris (calf) rejoining the lineup. Patterson averaged 11.3 minutes in his previous six appearances before Thursday and should have a similar role against the Sixers.
Patterson is starting Thursday against the Spurs, Dan Weiss of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
Patterson will receive his second start of the season with Serge Ibaka (back) and Kawhi Leonard (foot) out, while Marcus Morris (calf) is also questionable. In his lone previous start this season, the 32-year-old managed to score a season high of 13 points to go along with three rebounds across 20 minutes.
Patterson (personal) logged 11 minutes off the bench Thursday in the Clippers' 130-104 win over the Warriors, finishing with four points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds.
Patterson missed the Clippers' final five games prior to the All-Star break while tending to a personal matter, but he rejoined the team as it kicked off its second-half schedule Thursday. Before leaving the team, Patterson hadn't been a regular member of head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation, so he can't be counted on to play most nights.
Patterson (personal) will be available for Thursday's game against Golden State, Garrett Chorpenning of SI.com reports.
The 31-year-old was away from the team for the final five games before the break due to personal reasons, but he's ready to go for the start of the second half. Patterson should fill a reserve role since the Clippers are currently in good health.
Patterson (personal) will remain out for for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Andrew Greif of the LA Times reports.
The veteran forward remains away from the team while tending to a personal issue, and his next chance to play won't come until after the All-Star break. The Clippers resume play on Thursday, March 11 versus Golden State.
Patterson (personal) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game at Boston, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
It's will be the fourth straight absence due to personal issues for Patterson. The Clippers' injury report is otherwise empty, so the team shouldn't be affected on the court.
Patterson (personal) is out Sunday against the Bucks.
Patterson will remain shelved for a third straight game while attending to a personal matter. His next chance to play arrives Tuesday against the Celtics.
Patterson (personal) won't play Friday against the Grizzlies, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.
The 31-year-old will be sidelined for the second straight contest due to personal reasons. Patterson was unlikely to see much playing time if available with the Clippers currently in good health.
Patterson is out for Thursday's game against the Grizzlies due to personal reasons, Garrett Chorpenning of SI.com reports.
Patterson has been an infrequent part of the Clippers' rotation, so his absence Thursday shouldn't affect things. His next chance to play will be Friday's game, which is also against the Grizzlies.
Patterson scored seven points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and corralled six rebounds Wednesday in a loss to the Jazz.
The veteran hasn't played much this season, but he was allotted 15 minutes on the court with Kawhi Leonard (leg), Paul George (toe) and Nicolas Batum (concussion) all out of action. Patterson tallied a season high in boards in the loss in addition to his seven points. He doesn't appear destined for more than a deep bench role and shouldn't be a consideration in any fantasy format.
Patterson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Nets, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
The 31-year-old had 13 points (5-5 FG, 3-3 3PT) and three rebounds in a spot start Sunday, but Nicolas Batum (groin) is returning to action Tuesday. Patterson didn't play in the previous three games, so he's unlikely to have a significant role with the Clippers' frontcourt back to full health.
Patterson had 13 points (5-5 FG, 3-3 3PT) and three rebounds in Sunday's win over the Knicks.
Patterson got the start with Nicolas Batum (groin) sitting out, and it was just his eighth appearance of the season. The veteran made the most of his 20 minutes, hitting all three of his three-point attempts and adding a block on the defensive end. If Batum misses any additional time, Patterson could temporarily stick in the lineup.
Patterson will start Sunday's game against the Knicks, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.
The 31-year-old will make his first start of the season with Nicolas Batum (groin) sitting out Sunday. It will be Patterson's fourth appearance in January, so he may not see extended run at New York despite receiving the start.
Patterson finished with 10 points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one assist and one steal in 18 minutes Sunday in the Clippers' 129-96 win over the Pacers.
After being left out of the rotation in each of the past five games, Patterson earned some run as the backup center to Ivica Zubac when Serge Ibaka (illness) was a late scratch. Patterson came through with a strong shooting night during his time on the court, but he'll likely drop back out of the rotation if Ibaka is good to go for the Clippers' next game Wednesday versus the Kings.
Patterson (elbow) was a full participant in Sunday's practice, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Patterson was back on the court after dealing with a right elbow injury during the preseason. The 31-year-old should be ready to go for Tuesday's season opener versus the Lakers, but he may not be a regular fixture in head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation in 2020-21.
