Andre Roberson (sore left knee) logged 27 minutes on Sunday, posting four rebounds, three steals, two turnovers, and just one point on 0-of-5 FGs and 1-of-2 FTs.
Roberson sat out the previous two exhibitions but his injury was never serious. He had a ridiculously low usage rate of 9.2 percent last year and should see more opportunities with Kevin Durant out of town, but he's little more than a defensive specialist with deep-league appeal. Oct 16 - 9:39 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee soreness) is available for Sunday's game vs. the Wolves.

He's missed the last two preseason games as a precaution, but returned to full practice on Saturday. Roberson is a candidate to start at small forward this season and could hold some low-end value in deeper leagues after a promising showing in the playoffs last season. His upside is pretty low, though.

Andre Roberson (left knee soreness) practiced in full on Saturday.

Roberson has missed the last two preseason games due to the issue, but Billy Donovan had previously said that the absence was precautionary. We're not worried about Roberson's health, but he's not someone we're targeting in any fantasy format, either.

Andre Roberson (left knee soreness) will sit out Thursday's preseason game vs. the Grizzlies.

This will be Roberson's second straight game on the sidelines, but Billy Donovan maintains that his absence is largely precautionary. Alex Abrines and Anthony Morrow could earn some extended run tonight sans Roberson.

Andre Roberson (knee soreness) won't play against the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Thunder head coach Billy Donovan said the move was just precautionary, so it doesn't sound like anything that should linger into the regular season. Roberson will get a chance to play a bigger role for the Thunder this season, but he still doesn't have much fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.
Oct 11 - 1:12 PM

Andre Roberson said he's not thinking ahead to his upcoming free agency.

Roberson is set to become a free agent after the 2016-17 season, but is keeping his mind focused on the season at hand. "At this moment, I’m not much into that," Roberson said. "I just leave that to my agents. I’m going to play my game and live one day at a time. Priority is focusing on the team and do what I do. I’m not really worried about that aspect. If I go out there and play my game, everything is going to take care of itself." Roberson will see an increase in minutes after the departure of Kevin Durant, but his low usage rate relegates him to more of a deep-league fantasy asset.

Andre Roberson scored six points as the starting small forward on Monday, adding two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 21 minutes.

There is some talk of Roberson improving his shooting and possibly taking a few more shots in the offense. That's not really saying much, though. In his minutes with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant last year, Roberson couldn't even crack a 10.0 usage rate. His minutes should be there, but the tiny per-minute output just isn't enough to draft him in most leagues.
Oct 3 - 5:32 PM

Andre Roberson has worked on his shooting mechanics this summer.

The Thunder did add Victor Oladipo, but he's not the only player who will fill the offensive void left by the departures of Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka and Dion Waiters. Roberson had a tiny 9.3 usage rate last season, so there's a chance he gets into the low teens this year. Plus, he should be able to improve on his 22.2 minutes per game. All that said, there's just not enough upside to draft him in most leagues.
Sep 26 - 2:28 PM

Andre Roberson said he's looking forward to his new role in 2016-17.

Roberson is in line to start after the departure of Kevin Durant, and expects a fun 2016-17 season for the Thunder. "With our offense, the way we want to run it, it doesn't really matter what position you're in," Roberson said. "We all kinda work together, jell together and have the offense cutting, moving and just sharing the ball more. It's definitely going to be a fun year and more ball-oriented stuff, so it should be fun." Roberson will see a bigger role in the Thunder offense this season, but he's still no more than a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.

Andre Roberson made 2-of-11 from the field for four points on Monday with 11 rebounds, one block and no turnovers in 38 minutes.

He has been very efficient all series up until this one. Roberson's 3-pointers weren't really close and he missed a couple easy twos. His defense was one of the big stories of the postseason, especially in this series against the league's best offense. He's solidified himself as a rotation player.
May 30 - 11:35 PM

Andre Roberson fouled out in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with six points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He's coming off the best career of his game because the Warriors left him alone in most offensive sets on Tuesday. However, it was a little different this time with his teammates missing him on some open looks. Roberson's minutes should be safe, but the Thunder may not go small as much now that the Warriors made an adjustment to go bigger. Still, Roberson's DFS owners have to be satisfied with this and can dial him up again in Game 6.
May 26 - 11:37 PM

Billy Donovan praised Andre Roberson's play following Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

"It's funny," Donovan said. "After Game 2 people are saying to me: ‘Is this guy going to even play anymore?' Andre's a good basketball player and I think sometimes the things that go missing with him is he makes winning plays." Roberson, typically viewed as a defensive specialist, has suddenly emerged as an offensive option for the Thunder posting averages of 15.0 points, 9.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 triples, 3.0 steals and 1.0 block on 57.1 percent shooting over his past two outings. The Dubs have been completely ignoring him on defense, and Roberson has made them pay.

Andre Roberson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

The Warriors hacked him several times and he hit just 2-of-8 free throws, but this was arguably the best game of his career. The points were a career high and he shot 7-of-12 from the field, and you have to love the minutes. This big game obviously puts him firmly on the DFS radar due to his low price, though he was averaging just 4.4 points in the postseason prior to Tuesday.
May 25 - 12:05 AM

Andre Roberson started again on Sunday and had 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

Roberson is 8-of-13 from downtown in his past four games and the Warriors have dared him to beat them from the arc -- tonight Andrew Bogut began as his primary defender, and when Draymond Green has him he frequently roams to the opposite side of the court. Roberson did a good job cutting hard and moving without the ball, rewarding Billy Donovan's decision to keep him in the starting lineup. He'll be on Golden State's radar in Game 4.
May 22 - 11:00 PM

Andre Roberson made all three shots from the field for seven points against the Warriors on Monday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

To open the game, the Warriors had Draymond Green "covering" Roberson, but Green was really just playing safety to really focus on weak-side help. After a bad first half, Roberson started out strong in the second half. There's a decent chance this is his best scoring output in this series with his tidy efficiency, so he's not really a viable DFS punt.
