Andre Roberson scored six points with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.
Any game Roberson doesn't get to the line is a win, but he did make just 3-of-7 from the field. Alex Abrines played a little more than expected and this could be more of a split depending on the matchup and game script. Oct 20 - 12:30 AM

Andre Roberson was spotted sporting a splint on his left ring finger during Tuesday's practice.

To be clear, this is Roberson's non-shooting hand and we don't anticipate it being an issue that will affect his status for opening night, but we just want to make a note of the minor ailment. Roberson is a guy who has much more value to the Thunder than he does to any fantasy hoops GM, so he can safely be ignored just about everywhere.

Andre Roberson struggled offensively during the preseason.

Roberson averaged 3.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 21.8 minutes over OKC's four preseason contests. He missed all five of his 3-point attempts and was just 5-of-9 from the free-throw stripe. Roberson is on the floor strictly for his defense, particularly now that the Thunder have added Paul George and Carmelo Anthony. Roberson will log 30-plus minutes a night for a great team, but his limited upside and lowly percentages make him a difficult player to roster.

Andre Roberson and the Thunder have agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

OKC paired Russell Westbrook with FA Paul George earlier this summer, which addressed their post-Durant offensive issues. Retaining Roberson was key to their defense, but his 46.4 percent shooting last season was heavily weighted by attempts near the rim -- he shot 24.5 percent from deep. Roberson also shot 42.3 percent from the line last year, on a career-high (but comparatively low) 1.4 attempts per game, which drags down his fantasy appeal.

After Andre Roberson said last week that he would "definitely" like to re-sign with the Thunder, GM Sam Presti expressed mutual interest.

Roberson is a restricted free agent, so OKC can match any offer he receives. Speaking with reporters on Monday, Presti said that he is "excited about the fact that [Roberson] is a part of the team." Roberson posted career-highs across the board during the 2016-17 campaign. However, from a fantasy perspective, the free-throw shooting remains a major issue. He shot just 42.3 percent from the line during the regular season and was just 3-of-21 (14.3 percent) in the playoffs.

Andre Roberson said he would "definitely" like to stick with the Thunder this summer.

The 25-year-old defensive stopper averaged 6.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.2 steals and 0.6 triples in 80 regular-season games, but played the best basketball of his career in the playoffs. In the first-round series vs. Houston, Roberson averaged an impressive 11.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 3.4 blocks, 2.4 steals and 1.4 triples. Those defensive stats are intriguing, but fantasy owners are still waiting for his offensive game to come around. He should be looking at a significant raise this summer and hopefully he expands his game during the offseason.

Andre Roberson racked up the defensive stats during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Rockets, recording five blocks and two steals through 38 minutes of floor time.

Roberson also added 13 points, one triple, four boards and three turnovers to his stat line, and he did an excellent job of making life difficult for James Harden. Unfortunately, Billy Donovan refused to pull Roberson late when the Rockets started going with a hack-a-Roberson strategy, and Roberson proceeded to go just 2-of-8 from the charity stripe, which was a misstep that certainly factored into OKC blowing their fourth-quarter lead.
Apr 23 - 7:36 PM

Andre Roberson returned on Sunday with a playoff career-high 18 points, making 7-of-10 shots with 4-of-6 threes, seven rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 35 minutes.

Roberson battled a knee injury toward the end of the season, although his final two DNPs were dubbed 'rest'. His ability to knock down open 3-pointers is a bonus for OKC, but his real test will come as the primary defender against James Harden. Barring a setback, Roberson is good to go for the rest of the series.
Apr 17 - 12:05 AM

Andre Roberson will start Game 1 vs. the Rockets on Sunday, as expected.

Roberson dealt with a minor knee injury late in the season, and he got a few extra rest days, but there was never any doubt that he'd be in uniform. His return means that Kyle Singler will head back to the bench.
Apr 16 - 8:50 PM

Andre Roberson (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Nuggets.

The team calling it rest is a great sign that he'll be ready for Game 1 against the Rockets. With Roberson out, there should be more minutes going to Semaj Christon and Norris Cole. Jerami Grant should be looking at decent minutes.
Apr 12 - 6:12 PM

Andre Roberson (rest) and Taj Gibson (knee) have been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Russell Westbrook (rest) and Doug McDermott (knee) have also been ruled out of Tuesday's game, so there will be plenty of minutes up for grabs. Victor Oladipo, Kyle Singler, Jerami Grant, Domantas Sabonis should all benefit.
Apr 11 - 1:03 PM

Andre Roberson logged 18 minutes during Sunday's stunning road victory, scoring two points with two rebounds and one assist.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan wanted to limit Roberson to 20-25 minutes tonight, which explains the low playing time. OKC is locked into the No. 6 seed and they finish with back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday, so it's possible that Roberson will also be limited in one or both of those contests.
Apr 9 - 7:49 PM

Andre Roberson (knee) will be back in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, sending Doug McDermott back to the bench.

Roberson can be viewed as a deep league defensive specialist, but he typically doesn't bring enough to the box score to justify a standard league roster spot. McDermott is too inconsistent to trust in most leagues.
Apr 9 - 4:44 PM

Andre Roberson (knee) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

Roberson missed his first game of the year on Friday with a minor knee issue, but he should be back in the starting five without any sort of restrictions tonight. With Roberson back in action, Doug McDermott will likely return to the bench.
Apr 9 - 3:35 PM

Thunder coach Billy Donovan said he's "very optimistic" that Andre Roberson's left knee issue is not a long-term injury.

Roberson missed his first game of the season on Friday after injuring his knee on Wednesday. OKC's next game is Sunday at Denver. We should have an update by Sunday morning regarding Roberson's availability for that contest. Doug McDermott started in place of Roberson on Friday and played a game-high 40 minutes, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds and two 3-pointers.
