Andre Roberson did not practice on Saturday due to an ankle injury.
There is no word on the severity, but we'd guess he'll be ready to start the season. Roberson is very likely to be the starting shooting guard for OKC, but he'll only have value in deeper leagues. Oct 25 - 1:38 PM

The Thunder exercised their third-year option on Andre Roberson.

He's going to have a chance to start at shooting guard, but the Thunder won't draw up many plays for him. Unless he gets red hot from 3, fantasy owners can ignore Roberson in most leagues.
Oct 22 - 8:15 PM

Andre Roberson started once again on Friday against the Raptors and finished with 15 points, 10 boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

This is not typical of Roberson's stat-set and owners can dismiss it unless we see it again. The defensive specialist is probably looking at 20-28 mpg while Kevin Durant is out, and he won't be able to sniff standard league value even with that much playing time.
Oct 18 - 1:11 AM

Andre Roberson played 32 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring 10 points with seven boards, three assists, two steals and two blocks.

Jeremy Lamb has been awful and somehow posted a minus-31 in plus-minutes on Thursday. Roberson should be considered as the favorite to start at shooting guard on opening night, but he's not going to get a ton of shots. He's more of a deep-league, short-term target.
Oct 17 - 9:25 AM

Andre Roberson started again at shooting guard but failed to score after missing all four of his shots.

He only registered three rebounds and two turnovers in 25 minutes, as his reputation as a defensive stalwart continues to ring true. Starter or not, he's not enough of an offensive weapon to be considered in most fantasy leagues.
Oct 15 - 1:02 AM

Andre Roberson started at SG during Wednesday's preseason game, finishing with six points, seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 27 minutes.

The Thunder want a defensive-minded SG in the starting lineup and Roberson never fails to impress on that end of the court. His per-36-minute stats as a rookie provide an idea of his offensive weaknesses and defensive strenghths, even if he does earn a starting role -- 6.8 points, 0.2 threes, 8.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.9 blocks.
Oct 9 - 1:02 AM

Andre Roberson, Steven Adams and Mitch McGary will start for the Thunder on Wednesday.

Roberson is probably the favorite to start this season, which will push Reggie Jackson to the bench. Jackson will still have value as the sixth man and is worth a look late. Adams is starting for an injured Kendrick Perkins (quad) and McGary is in for Serge Ibaka (ankle).
Oct 8 - 2:40 PM

Andre Roberson is emerging as the starting SG for the Thunder.

Darnell Mayberry, the team's beat writer, gave a 90 percent chance that Roberson would be the season-opening starter. The Thunder are most comfortable with a defensive-minded SG, in which Roberson would be the obvious choice over the likes of Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, and Anthony Morrow. He only averaged 1.9 points per game last season so he is off the fantasy radar.
Sep 28 - 4:55 PM

The Thunder may give Andre Roberson more minutes next season.

They lost Thabo Sefolosha and his 26 minutes per game, so guys like Roberson could provide some help on the wing behind Reggie Jackson and Kevin Durant. Obviously Roberson is well off the fantasy radar in most leagues right now.

Andre Roberson's role shriveled vs. the Suns, as he went scoreless in only five minutes before being replaced by Derek Fisher as a starter in the second half.

Roberson started at SG but quickly gave way to Fisher, Reggie Jackson, Caron Butler and Jeremy Lamb. With Thabo Sefolosha (calf) nearing a return, there's simply no reason to cling to Roberson for fantasy value.
Apr 7 - 12:15 AM

Andre Roberson made his second straight start on Sunday, but he was held to two points on 1-of-3 shooting in a home loss to the Mavericks.

Scott Brooks was pleased with his young forward's defense vs. Jodie Meeks on Thursday, and he held an ailing Monta Ellis to nine points tonight, but it's unclear whether he'll keep the job over Perry Jones (six points) and Caron Butler (seven points).

Andre Roberson will start at SG again vs. the Mavericks on Sunday.

This makes two straight starts for Roberson, who finished Thursday's game with eight points, seven rebounds, one steal and four fouls in 24 minutes. He'll spend most of his energy defending Monta Ellis on Saturday and remains an unlikely source of fantasy value while the Thunder SG position is being split between Roberson, Perry Jones III and Caron Butler.
Mar 15 - 2:00 PM

Andre Roberson started at shooting guard against the Lakers on Thursday.

Scott Brooks said his starting shooting guard spot will be fluid, so this is just a matchup move to try and keep Jodie Meeks off the 3-point line. Fantasy owners can ignore Roberson in all formats.
Mar 13 - 9:55 PM

Andre Roberson has been assigned to the D-League 66ers of Tulsa.

Roberson has played a total of 43 minutes since the calendar turned to 2014, so this move comes as no surprise. He will suit up for the 66ers on Monday as the Thunder attempt to get the 22-year-old some valuable playing time. Needless to say, fantasy owners can feel free to turn a blind eye to Roberson this season.
Feb 4 - 9:48 AM

Andre Roberson was sent to the D-League on Friday.

He will be in uniform for the Tulsa 66ers tonight. Roberson did not play in his last three games with OKC and has no fantasy value in his rookie season.
