Thunder defensive stalwart Andre Roberson (ankle sprain) will sit out Wednesday’s game against the Pacers.
Roberson also sat out Monday’s loss to the Hornets. His presence was sorely missed on the defensive end as the Thunder gave up 116 points. Fantasy wise the guard has actually been top-50 over the last six games he played thanks to 1.7 steals, 1.7 blocks and 66 percent from the field during that span. The 26-year-old also averaged 34 minutes which is eight minutes higher than his season averages. Paul George was out for two of those games, which could explain the spike, but Roberson saw at least 30 minutes in all six games, even games with George. If this trend continues then Roberson could equal his 2016-2017 numbers (top-130 finish) and possibly better so he may be worth a flier to see if the minutes stay this high.
