Roberson (kneecap) suffered an avulsion fracture in his left leg Thursday and will be reevaluated in six weeks, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Roberson continues to endure multiple setbacks during his recovery from knee surgery and will take at least the next six weeks to heal the left leg avulsion fracture. Roberson apparently suffered the injury when he fell awkwardly during a workout Thursday. Once the injury heals, Roberson will be reevaluated and it's possible that he will be tagged with a timetable for a return. The Colorado product has been sidelined since scoring five points against the Pistons last season in January.
Roberson (kneecap) has a suture that is causing him discomfort, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.
Roberson's injury continues to heal as expected, although he'll be forced to miss at least two more months of action before undergoing further evaluation. The Thunder will determine the next step in his rehab at that time.
Roberson (knee) said he hopes to be cleared to return to action before December, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Roberson is in the latter stages of his recovery from a torn patella tendon, but the Thunder will continue to bring him along gradually given the rather severe nature of the injury. Oklahoma City is prepared to be without Roberson for at least the first month-and-a-half of the regular season, which equates to roughly 20 games. Roberson, himself, indicated that even if he's cleared before December, it might take until around Christmas for him to be "back to my elite self on the defensive end."
Roberson (kneecap) will take part in non-contact portions of training camp, Royce Young of ESPN reports.
Roberson isn't expected to be ready for the season opener, but there appears to be a chance he's back before his original target for a return in December. "We don't think we're going to be without him very long," Thunder GM Sam Presti said. Look for additional updates to be provided as he ups his activity over the coming month or so, but everything seems to be trending in the right direction despite the team refusing to give a concrete timetable. For the duration of Roberson's absence, some combination of Dennis Schroder, Raymond Felton, Alex Abrines and Terrance Ferguson should cover his minutes, with Schroder being the most intriguing fantasy asset.
Roberson (kneecap) hasn't been cleared for contact or 5-on-5 work, David Aldridge of TNT reports.
Roberson had previously reported that he hoped to be back to full strength by December, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that he isn't ready for contact in mid-September, more than two months beforehand. While the Thunder certainly want their top defender back as soon as possible, he won't be rushed into action and is still likely looking at missing at least the first month or two of the season barring any surprising developments in his recovery. Adding on to that, Roberson's value comes on the defensive side of the ball, so he'll struggle to provide significant fantasy value even when he's at full strength. With Roberson sidelined to start the season, Dennis Schroder will likely be the most intriguing fantasy asset that should benefit, while guys like Raymond Felton, Alex Abrines and Terrance Ferguson could see added minutes as well.
