Roberson left Sunday's game in Brooklyn after sustaining a right knee injury, which kept him on the sideline for the entirety of the second half. "I'm not really sure what happened," Roberson said. "It happened so quick, it's hard to describe. I couldn't even tell the doctors what happened." Roberson was walking with a noticeable limp after the game, but he wasn't using crutches, which seems like an encouraging sign. Per The Oklahoman, the injury is "not believed to be extremely serious," but Roberson is expected to miss "some time," meaning that he's unlikely to play in Tuesday's tilt with the Knicks. Roberson iced his knee during Monday's practice, and coach Billy Donovan said the team believes it's just a "short-term sprain" that won't require surgery.
Andre Roberson (knee) expects to know more about his injury by Monday, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Roberson seemed to suggest that he needs an MRI, following his early exit from Sunday's loss to the Nets. An extended absence would likely lead to an increased role for Dion Waiters, with Anthony Morrow, Kyle Singler and Cameron Payne also candidates to get some extra minutes. Morrow picked up four consecutive DNP-CDs prior to Sunday, but he did fill in with the starting unit when Roberson missed a game back in November.
Andre Roberson left Sunday's game against the Nets with a sprained right knee and will not return, The Oklahoman reports.
Roberson exited Sunday's game in the second quarter after being tumbled into by teammate Russell Westbrook. The severity of his setback is not entirely certain, so it remains to be seen if he will be available for Oklahoma City's next game Tuesday.
Andre Roberson recorded 10 points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks, and two steals in 31 minutes during the Oklahoma City Thunder 's 115-110 loss to the Trail Blazers on Sunday.
Roberson is typically a defensive specialist who provides very little scoring, but he was extremely efficient on Sunday. Still, Roberson is averaging only 4.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, 0.8 steals, and 0.6 assists in 20 minutes per game over the past five games, and he is waiver-wire material in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.
