The Oklahoma City Thunder may be without Andre Roberson even longer than expected. The 26-year-old suffered a setback while rehabbing from knee surgery and won’t be re-evaluate for two months, according to Erik Horne of the Oklahoman.
Roberson ruptured his left patellar tendon in January during a game against the Detroit Pistons. His rehab from the injury was going well. In July, Roberson said he wanted to return to the team by the start of training camp. By August, that timetable shifted to December.
The setback could impact whether Roberson can meet that deadline. If the team waits two months to re-evaluate Roberson, that would already put him in early December. At that point, he would likely have to build back up to playing shape, which could take time.
In 39 games last season, Roberson averaged 5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.
