Andre Roberson: Doesn't suit up Saturday
Roberson did not take the floor Saturday against the Stockton Kings.
Roberson's long-awaited return to the hardwood did not come Saturday, but he's expected to be in action for the Blue sooner rather than later. The veteran wing was a key piece for the Thunder from 2013-14 through 2017-18, but a knee injury the following season completely derailed his NBA career. Since the end of the 2017-18 campaign, Roberson has appeared in only 12 total NBA games -- most recently seeing action in five games for the Nets in 2020-21.... See More ... See Less
Andre Roberson: Lands with G League squad
Roberson signed a contract Wednesday with the G League's Oklahoma City Blue.
The 31-year-old Roberson has made 307 career regular-season appearances in the NBA, but he hasn't seen action in basketball's top league since March 3, 2021. After taking a layoff of nearly two years, Roberson will attempt to reboot his career in the G League, where he'll be joining the affiliate of the Thunder, with whom he spent most of his time in the NBA. If Roberson plays well in his initial games with the Blue, he could earn a 10-day deal with an NBA team before the 2022-23 season comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Andre Roberson: Signs 10-day contract with Nets
Roberson signed a 10-day contract with the Nets on Friday.
Roberson was waived by Brooklyn on Tuesday, but he'll return to the team on a 10-day pact after clearing waivers. He played just four minutes off the bench during his first stint with the team and is unlikely to see significant run for the Nets going forward.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Andre Roberson: Waived by Brooklyn
Roberson was waived by the Nets after Tuesday's win over Sacramento, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The 29-year-old signed with the team last week but is being let go ahead of the deadline to guarantee contracts for the rest of the season. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Roberson is expected to re-sign with the Nets on a 10-day contract if he clears waivers Friday.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Andre Roberson: Set to join Brooklyn
Roberson agreed to a one-year, nonguaranteed contract Tuesday with the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Brooklyn intends to waive Norvel Pelle to make room for Roberson, who will reunite with former Thunder teammate Kevin Durant (hamstring). Though he frequently started alongside Durant on the wing in Oklahoma City from 2013-14 through 2015-16, Roberson won't be in store for nearly as sizable of a role in Brooklyn. The 29-year-old has been sidelined for most of the past three years while recovering from January 2018 knee surgery, making only seven regular-season appearances since that procedure. Though Roberson is healthy again, he likely won't be asked to play more than a handful of minutes off the bench in situations where head coach Steve Nash wants a more defensive-minded wing in the lineup. Since his signing hasn't officially been announced, Roberson presumably won't be available for Tuesday's game in Phoenix, but he could join the Nets in Los Angeles when the team closes out its road trip with games Thursday versus the Lakers and Sunday versus the Clippers....

Nets' Andre Roberson: Available to play Tuesday
Roberson is available to play in Tuesday's game against Phoenix, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
Roberson agreed to one-year deal with the team on Tuesday and is already available to play. The 29-year-old wing likely won't take on much of a role, if any, with this Brooklyn team considering he has only appeared in seven NBA games since January 2018 while recovering from knee surgery. Roberson has yet to appear in any games so far this season.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Andre Roberson: Plays 28 minutes in finale
Roberson tallied just two points (1-9 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 107-103 loss to the Clippers.
Roberson was ordinary on the offensive end, as usual, but his defensive prowess should ensure that he sees meaningful minutes in the playoffs. He may be tasked with defending James Harden at times, so he could could prove to be a key factor in the final outcome. That said, he offers basically no fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Andre Roberson: Back in action Monday
Roberson (foot) isn't on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Suns.
Roberson was withheld from Sunday's win over the Wizards due to a sore foot, but his absence from the injury report a day later suggests he was likely just getting some maintenance in the front end of a back-to-back set. With starting shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (calf) out Monday and top backcourt reserve Dennis Schroder (personal) still away from the team, Roberson could be in store for his biggest workload to date in the NBA bubble. Roberson's playing time has fallen between five and 11 minutes in each of his four appearances since the restart.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Andre Roberson: Out vs. Wiz
Roberson will not be available Sunday against Washington due to a sore foot, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports.
The absence is believed to be precautionary, but Roberson should be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's game against Phoenix on the second half of a back-to-back set.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Andre Roberson: Plays 11 minutes off bench
Roberson saw 11 minutes of action in Friday's scrimmage against Boston.
In his first competitive game since Jan. 27 of 2018, Roberson posted five points on 2-of-3 shooting, including hitting one of his two three-point attempts. Given the extreme length of his absence, Roberson will likely be brought along slowly, but he figures to be a part of what's currently a muddled OKC wing rotation as seeding games approach....

Thunder's Andre Roberson: No restrictions for scrimmage
Roberson (knee) is available to play during Friday's scrimmage against the Celtics with no minutes limit, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports.
This is a massive step for Roberson, who hasn't played competitive basketball in two and a half years due to a left knee injury. Assuming everything goes well Friday, it seems likely we'll see him in the rotation come the Thunder's first seeding game Aug. 1 against the Jazz.... See More ... See Less
