Roberson Limps Off After Collision with Westbrook

Sunday, Jan. 24

Roberson's injury left the Thunder without two starters, as Steven Adams was already out after suffering an elbow sprain Friday. Anthony Slater of the Oklahoman explained what caused the third-year pro to leave the game:

After missing a layup in the second quarter, Russell Westbrook tumbled back and fell into Andre Roberson's right knee, which bent backward. Westbrook held his back, but shook it off and returned. Roberson didn't. He limped to the bench and then locker room, not returning with what the team is calling a right knee sprain.

Kyle Singler replaced Roberson, who is averaging 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. Should Roberson miss any more time in the future, Singler or Anthony Morrow will likely replace him.
