The 45th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Roby has yet to appear in an NBA game, spending all of his time in the G League. That will likely be the case still going forward for the Thunder.
Roby (foot) appeared in both ends of the G League Texas Legends' back-to-back set Friday and Saturday. He played 29 minutes between the affiliate's loss to the Agua Caliente Clippers and the win over the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, compiling eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), nine rebounds, two assists and one steal.
Though Roby's two outings were brief, his appearances marked his first game action at either the G League or NBA level since Nov. 20, as plantar fasciitis in his right foot and kept him on the shelf for the previous two months. Roby should gradually ramp up his minutes in his subsequent G League games but isn't expected to be a fixture in Dallas' rotation at any point during his rookie season.

Roby, a second-round rookie out of Nebraska has yet to make his NBA debut and hasn't appeared in the G League since Nov. 20 while dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Roby missed the Legends' most recent game Nov. 30 versus Grand Rapids on account of knee and foot injuries, but his callup to the Mavericks implies that he's healthy again. The rookie second-round pick isn't a lock to enter the Mavericks' rotation Wednesday against the Timberwolves, but Dallas may have just wanted an extra body in the frontcourt on hand for the second half of a back-to-back set.
Roby is dealing with a minor foot issue in addition to the knee injury that's hampered him this year, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Fortunately, the foot issue is nothing serious as Roby's struggled with his health so far this season, seeing action in just five-of-10 games for the Legends. Neither of the injuries appears to be overly serious, and Roby's excelled when able to paly, putting up 11.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.6 blocks in five G-League games.

Roby has enjoyed a solid start to the season with the Texas Legends and is averaging 11.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 blocks in 25 minutes through five games.

Roby signed a four-year, $6.7 million contract with the Mavericks on Tuesday, Bobby Marks of ESPN.com reports.
The Mavericks appear to have liked what they saw out of Roby in summer league, as the $1.5 million cap hit he'll have in 2019-20 is the largest in NBA history for a second-round pick out of college. Roby could provide some depth in the frontcourt during the regular season, but will likely see most of his playing time as a rookie in the G League.

The Mavericks' second-round draft pick performed admirably in a starting role and looked comfortable on the floor.

The Mavericks took Roby in the second round at No. 45 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft via the Pistons.
