Oklahoma City Thunder guard/forward Andre Roberson underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Tuesday, according to the team. The procedure was done to fix swelling that has come on during his recent rehab.

Rather than wait to see if the swelling would regress, Roberson and the team chose to be proactive and address the issue immediately so he could get back to rehab as soon as possible with no lingering problems. Roberson had surgery four months ago to repair his ruptured patellar tendon.

According to the team, his rehabilitation is still on track and going well. It is still expected that he’ll be ready to go for the start of the 2018-19 season.
