  • Andre Roberson - G/F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    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 - G/F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    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.

    Andre Roberson has suffered a setback in his rehab from a ruptured patellar tendon and will miss at least two more months.

    Roberson will be re-evaluated in early December. He originally said he probably wouldn't be 100 percent until then, but it was thought that he could play his way into shape with managed workloads early in the season. This opens a big spot on the wing in OKC. With Roberson and Paul George out on Wednesday it was Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Terrance Ferguson starting, so one of that pair should be considered the favorite to take Roberson's presumed spot with the starters. Alex Abrines may also be in the running.

  • Alex Abrines - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Alex Abrines' back spasms will keep him out of Wednesday's preseason opener.

    The Thunder will be down three rotation players tomorrow with Abrines joined by Russell Westbrook and Andre Roberson on the sidelines, though the latter two were obvious given their injuries. Abdel Nader, who missed practice today with knee soreness, and camp guy Richard Solomon (sprained knee) will also sit out.

    Andre Roberson (left knee) has been a limited participant in practice thus far as he has not been cleared for contact yet.

    Roberson is still rehabbing from a ruptured patellar tendon in his left knee and has been out since January. His status for the season opener is still unknown. He has a very limited stat set for fantasy but produced 1.2 steals and 0.9 blocks last year, good for 14-16 team value in standard leagues.

    Andre Roberson doesn't want to push his recovery but is doing "a little bit of everything" in terms of non-contact work.

    Roberson could be ready by opening night but he's already admitted that it will take a few weeks for him to really get up to speed. The defensive specialist should offer enough steals and blocks to hold deep league value, although he's definitely more appealing for punt FT builds.

    Sam Presti said that Andre Roberson will go through parts of training camp, but that he'll be doing mostly non-contact work.

    Roberson admitted recently that he probably wouldn't be back to 100 percent until December so the fact that he can't do contact work with the season less than a month away is casting serious doubt on his availability to open the year. The defensive stopper offers deep league appeal for his steals and blocks output but he won't need to be drafted in many fantasy leagues at this rate.

    While Andre Roberson will be with the Thunder for training camp, he has yet to be cleared for 5-on-5 or contact work.

    Roberson said previously that he probably won't be 100 percent until December. He's too important for OKC to rush here, as his defense is integral to their success even if his offensive game is putrid. We'll see if he's ready for the start of the regular season, but either way we wouldn't expect to see Roberson lose the training wheels for the first couple months.
