Patrick Patterson will be available for Saturday night's game against the Thunder.

Head coach Kevin McHale said he wants to ease Patterson (foot) back into the flow, playing 15, 20, 25 minutes. Patterson won't start on Saturday but will be available off the bench.

In 21 games this season, Patterson is averaging 13.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. He hasn't played since Dec. 14 with a foot injury.

McHale said the team has missed Patterson's lack of mistakes.

Carlos Delfino won't dress on Saturday night after sitting out Friday night's game with food poisoning.
