Andre Roberson has been out of action for the Oklahoma City Thunder since suffering a leg injury back in January of last year. Despite already missing an entire year of action, Thunder head coach Billy Donovan revealed last week that the team still had no timescale on Roberson's return. Nevertheless, the OKC organization has continually stated that Roberson will play again this season, so hopefully, the team will soon provide a more concise update on the 27-year-old's status.


Chris Paul - Hamstring - 5-10 Days

J.J. Barea suffered a torn right Achilles tendon during the Mavericks recent win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, and the point guard has since been ruled out for between 6-9 months. Despite being used from the bench, the 34-year-old was averaging 10.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.5 rebounds per game. Nevertheless, Barea's future with the Mavs is now in doubt as he will become a free agent this summer.
