Roberson Back In Starting Lineup

By Randy Renner

Thunder head coach Scott Brooks says shooting guard Andre Roberson will be back in the starting lineup tonight, replacing Jeremy Lamb.


Roberson told reporters at shoot around today, "I'm not 100 percent, but nobody in the league is 100 percent." 

Roberson will play about 20 minutes tonight, that's up from just the seven minutes he played Wednesday night in Denver. 

Brooks also said injured superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will participate in portions of tomorrow's practice, "Kevin and Russell have both had good workouts the last couple of days." 

Brooks said both players will be re-evaluated by the Thunder's medical staff next week. 

The news isn't as good as far as forward Perry Jones is concerned. 

"He's not ready," Brooks said when asked about Jones. "I'm not sure when he's coming back." 

Jones has been out about three weeks with what the team is calling a bruised knee. 

Nets coach Lionel Hollins said former OSU star Markel Brown is getting better, "I like what he does, he's a really hard worker, Hollins said before the game tonight. But the Nets boss said Brown probably won't play meaningful minutes for a while, "there are a lot of guys in front of him," Hollins said.
