Oklahoma City Thunder guard Andre Roberson left Monday's game early with a left foot sprain and will not return, according to Royce Young of ESPN.

Roberson's departure leaves the Thunder with just eight healthy players available against the Brooklyn Nets

The shooting guard already dealt with a sprained ankle in late October, which caused him to miss a practice. Through three games this season, he's averaging 7.4 points and 7.0 rebounds.

MAHONEY: Injuries put Thunder's season in early jeopardy

A defensive specialist, last season Roberson averaged 1.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 40 games, including 16 starts. The 22-year-old was a first-round draft pick in 2013.

Oklahoma City is already without forward Kevin Durant, who underwent surgery last month for a fracture in his foot, and point guard Russell Westbrook, who is out at least one month after having surgery on a broken hand.

Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Anthony Morrow and Mitch McGary are other Thunder players who are currently injured.
