Thunder’s Andre Roberson Reportedly Our For Season

Published

on

The Oklahoma City Thunder will have to play out the rest of the regular season, and the playoffs, without the services of Andre Roberson.

Roberson will miss the rest of the season with a torn patellar tendon in his knee, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

It can be argued that Roberson was the glue that held the Thunder’s  lineup together and he certainly will be missed on the defensive end of the court.

Perhaps no Thunder player will miss him more than forward Paul George who thrived on the defensive end when playing with Roberson.

George’s defensive rating without Roberson was 111.2 and with Roberson it was a markedly better 94.2.

It’s likely that the Thunder will turn to the trade market to try and get some defensive help, they are already into the luxury tax which will likely handcuff them as we approach the NBA trade deadline.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are waiving forward Kyle Singler, who will be waived using the stretch provision to help reduce the cost of this year’s roster for the Thunder, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Singler will become an unrestricted free agent once he officially clears waivers.

Singler is owed $4,996,000 for the 2018-2019 season aand $5,333,500 for 2019-2020, but his second-year salary is non-guaranteed leaving Oklahoma City responsible for only his salary for this season.
