The Thunder are already dealing with some key injuries.
On Thursday night, we learned some disappointing information:
Andre Roberson had a setback in his recovery, per a Thunder spokesperson. The initial injury is said to be healing well, but he had an irritation from a suture that was creating discomfort that he couldn't play through. He will be re-evaluated in two months.— Royce Young (@royceyoung) October 5, 2018
Roberson was on track to be back sometime in November from his original injury. With this setback, he'll be re-evaluated in two months, but his return to play will likely be longer than that.— Royce Young (@royceyoung) October 5, 2018
Roberson ruptured his left patellar tendon back in late January and missed the remainder of the season.
Additionally, Russell Westbrook underwent right knee surgery on Sept. 12 and is expected to be re-evaluated next Wednesday.
His status for the season opener against the Warriors on Oct. 16 is up in the air.
