Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson is continuing to heal from a sprained ligament in his right elbow, but there is still no timetable for his return.
Patterson hasn't played since March 7 when he aggravated an elbow injury. He was diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament two days later.
The Raptors said Patterson was reassessed Monday and another scan of the elbow revealed that the injury is healing well. He will continue to increase his basketball-related activity, including contact and scrimmages.
Patterson is averaging 8.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in 56 games this season for Sacramento and Toronto. He has averaged 9.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in 39 games for the Raptors since being acquired from the Kings on Dec. 9.
