Thunder Suffer Important Setback

Roberson No Where Near Return

Thunders Guard Andre Roberson “Nowhere Near” a Return

A week away from the playoffs and in desperate need of a boost, the Oklahoma City Thunder’s hopes of Andre Roberson’s returning have taken a turn for the worst. It was reported about a month ago that Roberson was close to a return and that the Thunder would be looking to integrate him right before the playoffs. Instead, the Oklahoma City medical staff reported earlier today that Roberson is ‘nowhere near’ a return.

He has been out since the end of last year with a serious knee injury. Though only averaging 4.6 points and 4.7 rebounds throughout his five-season career, Roberson has developed a reputation as one of, if not the best wing defender in the NBA. He was named to the All-NBA Defensive 2ndteam in 2016-17.

With the Thunder’s recent struggles and with a gaping whole at the three spot that Terrence Ferguson has been unable to fill, the Thunder could really use Roberson’s presence. They have clinched a playoff spot, but at 45-33, sit in seventh place and will need to continue winning games to avoid a dreaded first round meeting with the Warriors.
