In Wake of Injuries, Rookie Patrick Patterson Getting Minutes

With Yao Ming out for the season and Chuck Hayes recently going down with an ankle sprain, the Houston Rockets have turned to rookie Patrick Patterson. In the two games since Hayes went down, Patterson is averaging 10 points and 10 rebounds in 26 minutes.

The Breakdown
Patterson is getting a good amount of playing time and is worth adding in deep leagues. It looks like he'll stay in the rotation at least until Hayes returns. If he can keep up the strong play, he may be able to stay in the rotation long term. Patterson is available in nearly every league.
