Patrick Patterson Undergoes Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

Patrick Patterson underwent an arthroscopic knee surgery and will be re-evaluated in four to six weeks, the team announced Thursday.

Training camp, which begins on September 26th, coincides with the high end estimate of Patterson’s recovery time.

The procedure, which was described as ‘proactive,’ was performed in Los Angeles. The surgery (like most) was successful, according to the release.

The Kentucky product is slated to start at the power forward position for the Thunder next season.

Patterson took to Twitter to reassure fans:
