• The Thunder confirmed on Sunday morning that Andre Roberson has a ruptured patellar tendon and will undergo season-ending surgery.

    He’s facing the same injury that Brooklyn Nets’ guard Jeremy Lin suffered earlier in the season and the loss of Roberson will be a huge blow to the defense of the Thunder. He was far in a way their best defender as they had a 114.5 defensive rating with him on the court compared to a 95.9 defensive rating without him. Alex Abrines and Terrance Ferguson are the likely candidates to pick up some more minutes but with three ball-dominant players like Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in the lineup neither one of them will get many shot attempts, making them unworthy of being owned in most leagues.
