    I don’t think Thunder have been blown out all season. Could have won 4 games we lost, which considering what we lost is amazing!

    Close losses and to playoff caliber teams:
    Jazz 100-95
    Rockets 116-112
    Blazers 102-99
    Bucks 121-119

    If we pull those out we are 8-2. Granted, we didn’t and you can’t undo whats done. My point is to illustrate how competitive this team has been. Our roster churn and loss of top players means a lot of new moving parts. But these young players are learning and will pay off in future years.

    Just reinforces that this franchise is not in any trouble.

    OKC has had strong fan support for 11 Thunder seasons and 13 in NBA if you count the years of Hornets-Pelicans support post Katrina.

    The streak of 389 consecutive since 2010, exhibits a healthy NBA market.

    It's a home game, Laramie. At least I hope so as I'm planning to travel to OKC for it.

    Wonder why they are still carrying Roberson? A couple months ago he was supposedly working out with team and since then it has been radio silence.

    They're still carrying him because, well, he has a contract for this season. There's really no point in buying him out or anything. In fact, he's likely a good influence on our young defenders.

    There hasn't been radio silence. The Thunder have communicated updates and Roberson still is working out with the team. However, Roberson was either overly optimistic or misled in saying he was "ready to go." Supposedly, he is expected to be back sometime soon.

    But, yeah, I think there's a chance his career is generally over. Not many players miss this much time and ever really return.

    I truly believe if Roberson never went down (or returned even last season). That Russ and PG would still be here and we would not have been bounced in Round 1 either season.

    Taking load management to a new level. I just have not seen any updates on him since the summer, so thanks for letting me know. He should be getting to be a 90% free throw shooter by now with as much time he has had to improve himself in that area.

    Agree. We have no chance of title so no risk in keeping him. He is a good guy and can help the newbies. Ferg defense hss been better this year maybe Robes os helping.

    I know Robes os rare nowadays in that he loved loved loved to play defense. He actually studied every player he was gonna face on his own time and if one looks back at his last healthy season he shut down all the big dogs. His ability to guard the opposing best player meant less wear on our other starters this saving energy yet throttling their best player.

    I also agree he will never be the same. His injury was non contact and is taking forever. But based on our situation we have nothing to lose keeping him if he comes back even at 85% thats still pretty good. Still young enough were he to get back could help us in future years. But we’ll need to know by end of this year as we start making key long term moves for the rebuild.

    Hope for the best but fear the worst

    You really have to wonder at this point but I still hope heís able to come back,

    But even if heís not, he is a great teammate, influence and veteran locker room presence for the younger guys...and as an $11 million expiring contract, he could prove to be a very valuable trade piece at the deadline, especially as part of a bigger trade...

    Hope Andre Roberson is able to return; cautiously optimistic.

    Thunder had its first tragic game. They'll be alright.

    Quick update on Westbrook. Rockets are 10-3 but noticed he is shooting an amazing 21% from three point land lol. Harden is still having to carry that team.

    Using one stat (Westbrook's 3 point %) to draw a sweeping conclusion (Harden is carrying them in spite of Westbrook) is why they say stats show whatever you want. I think it's actually worked out largely as you would expect. Harden and Westbrook are who they are. Having said that, Harden had the worst shooting start of his career and Westbrook carried a lot of the load early on. Harden is a lot better than Westbrook so it's no surprise that the Rockets' success will rely on him, but I am actually surprised at the volume of stats Russ is putting up this season.

    ESPN Power rating summary on the Thunder:

    17. Oklahoma City Thunder
    Record: 5-7
    Week 4 ranking: 18

    He started slowly, but Chris Paul has quietly put together a couple of weeks of very good basketball. His game Friday against the 76ers was vintage Point God stuff, with him running the game down the stretch, mastering the midrange, finding open shooters for daggers and competing in mismatches on the defensive end. The Thunder are plus-3.3 points per 100 possessions with Paul on the floor and minus-5.3 with him off. Assists are at a career low, but that's more an indication of Paul's buy-in to give Shai Gilgeous-Alexander room to breathe than anything else. -- Young

    This week: @LAC, @LAL, LAL

    To give you an idea of how long has it been since Andre Roberson played in a game for the Oklahoma City Thunder:

    Steven Adams & Terrance Ferguson are the only two players left from the roster at the time of Robersonís injury.
