Thunder count on Patterson to contribute vs. Nuggets

(TSX / STATS) -- OKLAHOMA CITY -- It took awhile for Patrick Patterson to find much of a role for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Coming off offseason knee surgery and with Thunder coach Billy Donovan working to find a cohesion between veteran stars Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, Patterson received sporadic minutes during the early part of the season.

Lately, though, Patterson's workload has ramped up. Heading into a Monday night home game against the Denver Nuggets -- and with Anthony continuing to struggle -- Donovan figures to continue giving Patterson more looks.
