Steven Adams, who Andre Roberson described Wednesday as “my buddy since day one,” has discussed wanting to keep Roberson a part of the team [during his rehab from injury], too. “I’m doing everything I can to stay involved,” Roberson said. “Being around the guys just makes me feel not alone, because a lot of time, I’m alone, four walls, by myself, doing rehab with someone one-on-one.”
Two weeks ago, after Thunder guard Andre Roberson sustained a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon in a win over Detroit, Warriors forward Kevin Durant shot him an encouraging text. “I let him know I’m here if he ever needs to talk or anything because I’ve been through it, you know, injuries and how you feel when you’re going through them,”said Durant, who played with Roberson in Oklahoma City for three seasons (2013-16). “Just try to give him somebody else to lean on if he needs some advice or just some encouragement. I’ll always be here for him.”
The Thunder — who never had any intention of trading Paul George — have canvassed the league in search of bench help. The need for a wing defender increased in the wake of Andre Roberson’s season-ending knee injury, and OKC has indeed done due diligence on Avery Bradley, Jonathon Simmons and any other wing defender it believes could be on the market.
