Oklahoma City’s Andre Roberson out another 2 months

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Thunder guard Andre Roberson will miss at least two months after a setback in his recovery from left knee surgery.

A Thunder spokesman said Roberson underwent a minor procedure Thursday. Roberson previously had been doing non-contact work in practice and had hoped to be ready to play in December.

Roberson suffered a ruptured patellar tendon in January and missed the second half of the season. The Thunder suffered without one of the league’s best perimeter defenders, and was eliminated by the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs.

The 6-foot-7 Roberson was an All-Defense second-team selection during the 2016-17 season.
