The Thunder confirmed on Sunday morning that Andre Roberson has a ruptured patellar tendon and will undergo season-ending surgery.
It's a huge loss for the Thunder on the defensive end -- their starting five had a defensive rating of 95.9 with Roberson on the floor and a 114.5 rating with him off. His absence won't have huge fantasy implications, but Alex Abrines, Terrance Ferguson and Josh Huestise are all candidates to see a bump in minutes. For the time being, none of these guys are worth grabbing in 12-team fantasy leagues. Jan 28 - 11:41 AM

Preliminary reports on Andre Roberson are that he ruptured his patellar tendon, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Awful news. This will mean three NBA players would be out for the season based on the news in the last 24 hours (Conley, Cousins). Patellar tendon surgery has a difficult rehab and Roberson is going to have a tough time being ready for the start of next season. The Thunder will have to lean on Terrance Ferguson, Alex Abrines and Josh Huestis more now with Ferguson deserving a fantasy look in deeper leagues.

Andre Roberson (leg) was carted off the court on Saturday.

It was a non-contact injury has he cut to the basket and his leg buckled on the way up. He had his left leg in an air cast and this injury did not look good at all. OKC is likely going to be missing Roberson for multiple games, which should mean Terrance Ferguson should see an increased role.
Jan 27 - 6:48 PM

Andre Roberson scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

His most impressive feat today was that he missed four free throws with no time off the clock. He missed two, grabbed the rebound off the second miss and was fouled right away, and missed his next two. On the positive side, Roberson played well on defense as per usual, but he doesn't have much fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 6:46 PM

Andre Roberson is expected to play his normal amount of minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

He played just 17 minutes on Wednesday, so Roberson should be in the upper 20s as the primary defender on LeBron James. He has more value in reality than in fantasy.
Jan 20 - 2:28 PM

Andre Roberson returned to action on Wednesday with four points on 2-of-2 shooting, four rebounds, three steals, two assists, one block and zero turnovers.

Roberson logged 17 minutes in his first action since late December. He looked sharp and is averaging 26.9 minutes on the season, but OKC didn't need to push him with the game decided in the third quarter. He's a non-entity in points leagues, but has some niche appeal for defensive stats.
Jan 18 - 12:40 AM

Andre Roberson (knee) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers, sending Terrance Ferguson back to the bench.

Roberson has missed the past eight games, so he could have his minutes monitored tonight. Neither Roberson nor Ferguson can be considered viable targets in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 6:28 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) upgraded to questionable for Wednesday against the Lakers.

He got some shots up on Tuesday and even went through practice on Sunday. Coach Billy Donovan talked a lot about his second unit playing well together, so chances are Roberson would be put back into the starting lineup. He's still not someone fantasy owners should count on in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 4:23 PM

Andre Roberson (knee) got up some shots during Tuesday's light practice.

The Thunder just did some light shooting and watched film on Tuesday, so this isn't much of an update. We'll have a better idea on Roberson's status for tomorrow's game based on his activity level at Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he's out again, Terrance Ferguson will get another start.
Jan 16 - 3:01 PM

Andre Roberson (knee) was a full participant in Sunday's light practice, but he will not play Monday vs. the Kings.

"We didn’t have a lot of contact in practice, but he went through the entire practice, so he’s getting better," Thunder coach Billy Donovan said Sunday. While Roberson is improving, Monday will mark his eighth straight game on the sidelines, which will likely result in Terrance Ferguson earning another start.

Jan 14 - 2:26 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Charlotte.

Roberson reportedly went through parts of practice on Friday, but sat out the contact portions. He is inching his way towards a return but will likely need to get a full-contact practice under his belt before he is cleared to play. Terrance Ferguson is expected to draw another start on Saturday.
Jan 12 - 1:50 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) did some non-contact work in practice on Tuesday but won't play on Tuesday night vs. Portland or Wednesday vs. Minnesota.

Roberson has missed each of OKC's last four games. Donovan said that he'll be re-evaluated later in the week. Terrance Ferguson has started each of the last three contests and is averaging 12.3 points, 1.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2.0 steals in 27.5 minutes over those three starts.
Jan 9 - 6:26 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) is being listed as out in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup with the Trail Blazers.

The knee issue has kept Roberson on the sidelines for the past four games, and Thunder beat reporter Erik Horne speculates that he'll likely miss Wednesday's game in Minnesota as well. With Roberson on the shelf, Terrance Ferguson should be looking at a few more starts, but Ferguson isn't much more than a low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Jan 8 - 4:10 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) is considered doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.

Terrance Ferguson has had some nice moments in the starting lineup, so he might stick. Roberson has been a liability on offense all season, so he may have a limited role upon his return.
Jan 8 - 1:43 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said that Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) will miss at least three more games.

Roberson won't play at all during the Thunder's upcoming three-game road trip (Tuesday vs. the Lakers, Thursday vs. the Clippers or Sunday vs. the Suns). The Thunder then return home next Tuesday to take on the Blazers. We'll see if Roberson can rejoin the team next week. Josh Huestis replaced Roberson in the starting lineup Sunday night, but failed to score a single point and grabbed just one rebound in 19 minutes. Alex Abrines had three points and one rebound in 15 minutes off the bench. This is a situation to avoid from a fantasy perspective.
