The Oklahoma City Thunder revamped their roster this offseason and while Paul George is the headline of their summer they brought in some other important pieces to fill out their rotation. Raymond Felton was signed to be a backup point guard and Patrick Patterson inked a deal to be a reserve forward.
Unfortunately for OKC, Patterson will be out about four-six weeks after knee surgery. It doesn’t appear that Patterson will miss any parts of the season as long as his rehab and recovery go well.
Following comes from an Oklahoma City Thunder press release.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Patrick Patterson underwent a successful arthroscopic procedure today on his left knee, Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti announced.
The proactive procedure was performed by Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, California. Patterson will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks.
In the 2016-17 season with the Toronto Raptors, Patterson appeared in 65 games averaging 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.6 minutes per game.
