There is still more testing to be done to confirm the injury. Roberson had missed time due to tendonitis in his left knee, so this injury makes sense in that context.
Here’s the play where Roberson got hurt during the third quarter of the Thunder-Detroit Pistons game:

It initially appeared as if Roberson had slipped, but the reality appears to be that he blew out his knee. He was taken away on a stretcher and received well wishes from many on Twitter:
