Jones, pictured above, has seen a significant amount of minutes at small forward with Kevin Durant out.  He has been out with a sprained left foot. Roberson, who has averaged six points in nearly 30 minutes per game this season, is out with a foot injury.

Anthony Slater, who covers the Thunder for The Oklahoman, tweeted the following update on Roberson and Jones.
Roberson, in his second season out of Colorado, averaged 1.9 points and 1.5 rebounds in ten minutes per game last season. He's expected to make a more significant contribution this season.

Jones is having an excellent start to the 2014-2015 season, averaging 15 points and 3.8 rebounds in 32.8 minutes per game. In 105 career games, all with the Thunder, Jones is averaging 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
