Patterson out, Williams returns for Raptors vs. Pelicans
NEW ORLEANS (AP) Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey says shooting guard Lou Williams is returning from a sprained ankle for Monday night’s game against the Pelicans, while power forward Patrick Patterson is sitting out because of his sprained left knee.
Williams, who averages 15.4 points, has missed only one game with his injury, a loss in Houston on Saturday night.
Patterson’s injury occurred during last Friday night’s victory in Atlanta. He played the following night against the Rockets, finishing with five points and four rebounds in a little less than 24 minutes.
The Raptors then had listed Patterson, who averages 8.5 points and 5.5 rebounds, as questionable for Monday night’s game, and he was ruled out a little more than an hour before tip-off.
