    Per Billy Donovan, Andre Roberson (left knee) is ramping up his workload and went through contact scrimmages on Monday.

    The Oklahoma City coach stated on Monday that “he did some but not all. He did more today than he did yesterday.” It sounds like Roberson is going to be a game-time call for the Thunder’s season opener on Wednesday against the Utah Jazz. He is a better real-life player and can be left on the waiver wire.

    Andre Robertson (left knee) went through contact practice on Sunday.

    Coach Billy Donovan still didn’t have a solid answer regarding Robertson’s availability for the Thunder’s season opener vs. the Jazz but this is good news. He’ll be a very big piece of OKC’s defensive scheme but won’t really provide much for fantasy owners outside of steals and a few blocks.

    Andre Roberson (left knee) will remain sidelined during Monday's preseason game with the Mavs.

    Roberson was hoping to play in the preseason to get ready for the real deal, but the Thunder haven't cleared him for that just yet. OKC's wing group is full of question marks and a healthy Roberson could end up starting, but there's just too much uncertainty around his recovery to endorse him as a fantasy selection outside the deepest of leagues.

    Andre Roberson, who is recovering from a surgically repaired left knee, will be re-evaluated before Thursday's exhibition game.

    Consider Roberson questionable for now. He could be in the mix for decent minutes this season but will have to prove that he is healthy. Roberson hasn't played since the 2017-18 campaign.

    Andre Roberson will miss Tuesday's preseason opener against the Mavs.

    Roberson was able to do a little work throughout training camp and it's expected that he takes the floor at some point in preseason. The wing minutes are wide open in OKC and a healthy Roberson would have a chance to start, delivering defensive numbers for deep-league fantasy managers in the process. That said, it's been over a year since Roberson took the court, so expectations should be low.

    GM Sam Presti said that Andre Roberson will "be on the floor for training camp."

    Presti also added that the team hopes Roberson will be ready to play this preseason. Roberson missed the entire 2018-19 season after experiencing multiple setbacks with his surgically-repaired left knee, and will likely be dealt with kid gloves until he proves his health, but should be ready to go this season. Roberson had some value in the defensive stats before being injured but is best left on the waiver wire to start the season.

    Speaking during a press conference Thunder GM Sam Presti said that wing Andre Roberson should be ready for the start of next season.

    The defensive-minded Roberson was sorely missed last season as the Thunder didn't have quality replacements for him. When he does return, he'll be coming back to an entirely different lineup and situation than he left it. It is too early to tell what his fantasy value would be as he's been out for a year and a half.

    Andre Roberson said during his exit interview, that he’s been “making great progress” and is on track to be ready for training camp.

    This is encouraging news for Roberson who missed the last year and a half with the patellar injury after taking a wicked fall. Roberson will have to prove his health this fall before he becomes an option for fantasy teams, but the Thunder have to be thrilled to hear this news about their defensive stopper.

    Billy Donovan said that Andre Roberson (left patellar tendon) is healing well.

    "The healing has been good from what I’ve been told." Roberson missed the entire season after sustaining a setback while attempting to return from last year's awful injury. Another full summer of recovery should do the trick, so hopefully we see OKC's defensive stopper return to the court by opening night.

    Andre Roberson (ruptured left patellar tendon) did not suit up in 2018-19.

    Roberson suffered the brutal injury last season and then suffered a setback in October before dealing with another in November. The Thunder could certainly use another top-flight perimeter defender, but there are questions about what Roberson will look like after such a serious injury and lengthy layoff. We'll keep you posted on his recovery.

    Andre Roberson (ruptured left patellar tendon) hasn't been able to do anything in practice and is not close to returning to the court.

    Patellar tendon injuries are delicate as the tendons work with the muscles at the front of your thigh to help extend your leg so you can run, jump and kick. At this point, you can forget about Roberson making an impact anytime soon. Let's hope he can recover in time for training camp next season.

    The Thunder remain hopeful that Andre Roberson (ruptured left patellar tendon) can return this season even though he has yet to resume on-court work.

    Roberson still hasn't gotten back on the court following his latest setback, an avulsion fracture in his knee sustained at the end of November. While OKC is trying to stay optimistic, this isn't a situation that fantasy owners need to monitor. Adding Roberson to the Thunder's defense would be huge for the playoff push if he's even close to his old self.

    While Andre Roberson (ruptured left patellar tendon) still isn't close to playing, the Thunder hope to have him back this season.

    Roberson suffered an avulsion fracture in his left knee while rehabbing from the major injury that limited him to 39 games last season, and there was some thought that OKC might just shut him down. While the Thunder boast a fearsome defense even without Roberson's elite contributions, one imagines that they'd love to be able to call on him if they came across Golden State or Houston in the postseason. There's no need to keep tabs on Roberson for fantasy purposes but we'll keep you posted when the team updates his condition.

    Andre Roberson suffered yet another setback in his injury recovery on Friday and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

    Roberson suffered an avulsion fracture in his left knee after landing awkwardly during a workout. This is turning into a lost season for Roberson who has some sneaky value as a defensive specialist in very deep leagues when healthy. Without him available, there's more of Alex Abrines and Terrance Ferguson to go around.
