Andre Roberson has suffered a setback in the recovery of his left leg, suffering an avulsion fracture in his knee, multiple sources report. Per reports, Roberson suffered the setback after landing awkwardly during a recent workout.

In a case of bad coincidence, yesterday Erik Horne of The Oklahoman published a story yesterday stating Robes’ recovery was moving forward well, with multiple clips showing up on Twitter highlighting Roberson’s mobility.

The 26-year-old is still rehabbing his surgically repaired left knee, but nearly two months since experiencing a setback in his recovery, Roberson is showing positive signs.

“I’m sure for him there are some days he’s sorer than others,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. “But overall, he just continues to progress and get better.

“You guys have seen him out here. He’s cutting, he’s moving. He’s been on a really good track.”

If the timetable is not modified, as Young proffers, Roberson’s return could expected to be mid-January. A revised timetable may bump his return to after All-Star break.
