Roby posted 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds and four assists across 24 minutes in Wednesday's 128-99 loss against the Lakers. Roby made his second start of the season with Al Horford (rest) sitting out Wednesday, and the 22-year-old big man was quite productive -- he ended just one rebound shy of a double-double while scoring in double digits for the third time in 2020-21. That said, he's expected to move back to a bench role Friday against the Bulls.
Roby will start Wednesday's game against the Lakers. The 22-year-old will make his second start of the season with Al Horford (rest) sitting out Wednesday. Roby had 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-3 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes in his previous start.
Roby finished with 13 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and five boards in 19 minutes of a 129-116 win against the Nets on Saturday. Roby finished in double digits for the first time since his season debut, as he took advantage of an increased role to make an impact. The former second-round pick has had an inconsistent role this season, making his performances hard to predict. He'll face the Spurs on Tuesday.
Roby is in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Magic. The 22-year-old hasn't seen game action yet this season but will join the starting five with Al Horford (rest) unavailable against Orlando. Roby played only 11 minutes as a rookie last season, so he may not see extended run Tuesday despite the start.
Correcting a previous update, Roby traveled with the Thunder to San Antonio and will start Saturday's game against the Spurs, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports. With a myriad of Thunder players sidelined, Roby will get the nod in the preseason opener. As a rookie last season, Roby played just 11 minutes, but he figures to have a bigger role this season as the team enters a complete tear-down and rebuild.
