While attempting to jump up and throw down a lob from Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson’s left knee appeared to buckle as he failed to get up for the lob. After he went down hard, Roberson slid himself off the court & remained on the ground for several minutes, surrounded by medical staff & teammates. Due to the seriousness of the injury, the medical staff had to use a stretcher to transport him from the court to an ambulance as Roberson was seen chewing a towel with tears in his eyes.
This is devastating for the Thunder, who are currently riding a seven game win streak. Andre Roberson is an incredible defender who makes a huge difference on the court for them. With Dre on the court, the Thunder are second in defensive rating. Without him, they rank dead last in this category. Hopefully Oklahoma City can overcome this and Andre Roberson has a speedy recovery.
