While the healing process continues to go well for Patrick Patterson, there’s no telling when Toronto’s injured veteran will be back in the lineup.

On Tuesday, Patterson missed his 10th game in a row, sidelined by a right elbow injury that was once again re-evaluated by Toronto’s medical officials.

The good news is that Patterson has been given the go-ahead to take part in one-on-one contact drills during practice.

The bad news is the Raptors are in no position to practise with so little off days between now and the end of the regular season.

Following Tuesday night’s tip against the host Cavs, the team was scheduled to head to Boston to play the Celtics Wednesday night as a snow strom once again threatened to wreak havoc.
