Terrance Ferguson/Andre Roberson practice updates

OKLAHOMA CITY — Terrance Ferguson returned to practice Friday morning after missing the preseason finale against the Memphis Grizzlies. Ferguson was involved in a car accident on the way to Chesapeake Energy Arena on Wednesday.

“Yeah, he was out there,” Billy Donovan said. “I’m sure he was probably a little sore, but he was out there today and he practiced. He seems to be doing well.”

When asked if Ferguson was under any restrictions at practice, Donovan there was nothing to report.

“No, he’s fine,” Donovan added. “Like I said, he’s probably sore from getting rear-ended, but nothing prevented him from being out there today.

Ferguson was requested by the media for a scrum but was busy receiving a massage following practice. A team spokesman reaffirmed Donovan’s statement that Ferguson practiced, was fine but just sore.


Andre Roberson was able to practice “some” according to Donovan.

“He did a little bit more today,” Donovan said. “He didn’t do everything, he did some. He didn’t go full.”

Roberson could be seen running the floor following practice with assistant coaches. Full court press drills, finishing at the rim.

He even met with the media for an eight-minute scrum.

“I feel good,” Roberson said. “Still working myself into game shape.”

Roberson mentioned that his conditioning is the final hurdle to him returning to the floor. When that time comes, Roberson does not want to be in a situation where he plays one night with the next game being uncertain.

“That’s the whole point of me taking it easy,” Roberson said. “When I’m back, I wanna be back. I don’t want to step on the floor and miss the next game. That’s my ultimate goal. But I’m in no rush.”

When asked if he had a date circled for his return, Roberson said that he didn’t have a particular time down but mentioned he would return “pretty soon.”

“I can’t really put a timeline on it honestly,” Roberson said. “I feel good so it’s coming pretty soon.”
