Ryan Wolstat: Patrick Patterson said “I’m fine” when I asked if he is 100%. Isn’t sure either what future holds. Said he has great memories here.
The power forward was asked on Tuesday whether he is approaching this season any differently since he will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. “Oh yeah, definitely,” Patterson told reporters after practice. “It’s a contract year. Everybody wants to get paid and I’m one of those guys included. I want to be successful. I want my team, most importantly, to be successful.” With the salary cap exploding upward, Patterson will double, maybe even triple his previous annual salary (roughly $6 million U.S. per season). “Going into this year the focus is a lot more different. My attitude, my demeanour and the way I carry myself on and off the court is just going to be drastically different than the years before,” he said.

Mirjam Swanson: Clippers will be without Kawhi tomorrow in Indy, he’s OUT with a sore right foot. Serge (back) and Pat Bev (hand) also are out, of course. Everyone else is available.
The scene was quite familiar to fans who have watched the Bucks’ starters celebrate their teammates’ success at the end of blowout victories in the last two seasons with one notable exception: Antetokounmpo was not wearing a jersey. Instead, Antetokounmpo was wearing a black Bucks hooded sweatshirt and a pair of black joggers as he watched from the sidelines as he missed his fifth consecutive game because of left knee soreness.
“We were talking about it before the game,” Middleton said after putting up 21 points, eight rebounds and five assists in Sunday’s win. “He said he hasn’t missed this many games in a row in his career. He’s itching to get back out, so hopefully he’ll be back out there soon.”
Following shootaround before the Pacers game, The Athletic asked Connaughton about Antetokounmpo’s impressive ability to stay healthy throughout his career and why he has always been able to return to the floor quickly after an injury. “Work ethic,” Connaughton said. “I feel like the misnomer is when you get injured, you need rest, like your body will heal itself and what I’ve seen since I’ve been in the NBA is that is actually the opposite.”
