Andre Roberson double-doubled on Thursday with 10 points, 12 boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
It was his best game in a while and he was involved in the offense. Roberson scored just 3.1 points per game over his previous 10 and doesn't do much else, so leave him on the wire even with the uncertain status of Kevin Durant. Dec 19 - 1:48 AM

Date:

Andre Roberson started Tuesday's game at SG but finished scoreless with nine rebounds and one assist in just 18 minutes of action.

Roberson is on the court for defense and rebounding, both of which he provided, and for now the SG job is his to lose. Reggie Jackson, Anthony Morrow and Jeremy Lamb are all looming threats to his playing time, however, and there's simply no reason to own Roberson in fantasy leagues.
Dec 2 - 11:33 PM

Andre Roberson moved back into the starting lineup and played 22 minutes on Friday, scoring four points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks.

Roberson has sneaky fantasy value and in his six games he has returned late-round value when he has been on the floor. Scott Brooks loves him and it wouldn't be surprising to see him start for the rest of the season, but there still isn't a lot of stable ground here. If you want to take a flier in a deep league we can get behind that, but otherwise it pays to wait and see if he can keep it up.
Nov 22 - 12:37 AM

Andre Roberson will start on Friday, sending Jeremy Lamb to the bench.

Roberson is a defensive specialist for the Thunder, so he doesn't bring too much to the box score. He's averaging 6.0 points and 6.0 rebounds with the starting unit, and his minutes will be capped at 20 tonight, so he doesn't really belong on an active roster outside of extremely deep leagues.
Nov 21 - 6:23 PM

Andre Roberson returned from a foot injury on Wednesday and played seven minutes, finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist and a 3-pointer.

He's been out for a few weeks with the injury, but could be slotted into the starting SG job once he's fully healthy. That's where he was before the injury, but he isn't much of a fantasy prospect unless you're in a really deep league.
Nov 20 - 3:02 AM

Andre Roberson (foot) is available to play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

It's unclear if he is going to start or if his minutes are limited. Roberson was close to playing on Tuesday, but he probably won't be fully unleashed tonight. If you want to pick him up in a deep league, it makes some sense. Although, he will lose a lot of value upon the return of Kevin Durant (foot).
Nov 19 - 8:19 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) has not been ruled out for Wednesday.

He is going through pre-game warmups, but it's unknown if he will actually play. The Thunder could really use him and he would be on the fantasy radar. Lance Thomas would lose minutes. Stay tuned.
Nov 19 - 7:55 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) will not return on Tuesday and he remains day-to-day.

There's a chance that Roberson will play Wednesday, but OKC may hold him out until Friday or Saturday as a precaution. He's likely to assume the starting SG job once healthy, but he doesn't have enough fantasy upside to be worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 8:09 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) is close to returning this week, according to Thunder head coach Scott Brooks, and could play as early as Tuesday against the Jazz.

Brooks mentioned Tuesday as a possibility, but we're more likely looking at Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday if we're staying within Brooks' timetable of this week. Roberson doesn't deserve much fantasy attention as a defensive specialist, but his return will cut into Jeremy Lamb and Anthony Morrow's already limited fantasy value.
Nov 18 - 1:45 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) is not close to making a return to the Thunder, and will not play on Sunday.

The Thunder haven't released a lot of info on Roberson which doesn't bode well for his status going forward. The defensive specialist should remain on the waiver wire in almost all leagues until we get a positive report. In the meantime, Jeremy Lamb will continue to play as many minutes as he can handle and is considered a boom-or-bust option.
Nov 16 - 9:38 AM

Andre Roberson (foot) did not practice on Saturday and is listed as out against the Rockets on Sunday.

He has been ruled out for games before shootaround and we'd probably expect the Thunder to rule him out soon. With Roberson likely out, Anthony Morrow and Jeremy Lamb figure to get most of the work on the wings.
Nov 15 - 2:23 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

Jeremy Lamb has been filling in as the starting shooting guard with Roberson sidelined, but he's had two consecutive bad games. Still, the opportunity will be there for Lamb as the Thunder currently only have 10 healthy bodies on their roster, but he's not a must-own player. Anthony Morrow blew up for 28 points in his last game, and out of all the available guards in OKC, Morrow is the guy with the most upside.
Nov 14 - 1:43 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) is listed at out for Wednesday's game against Boston.

The defensive specialist will again be sidelined with his foot issue and Jeremy Lamb will draw another start. Roberson can be let go in almost all leagues while Jeremy Lamb will be a boom-or-bust play in the short term.
Nov 12 - 12:56 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) will not suit up for Tuesday's game and Jeremy Lamb will once again start for the Thunder.

He wasn't expected to play so this should come as no surprise. Jeremy Lamb will draw another start and is definitely worth a look after he scored 17 points while adding three boards, one block, and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes. Roberson can be ignored in almost all leagues until further notice.
Nov 11 - 8:23 PM

Andre Roberson (foot) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Kings, and Jeremy Lamb will draw the start in his place.

Roberson still has no timetable for his return, but he wasn't doing much while he was on the court, averaging just 6.0 points and 6.0 rebounds on the season. Jeremy Lamb was great in his last outing, putting up 17 points, three rebounds, one block, and one 3-pointer over 41 minutes of action. He'll be forced into heavy minutes again tonight, with the Thunder having only nine healthy bodies at their disposal, and he makes for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
