Jeremiah Robinson-Earl’s return to the court took a positive step on Tuesday.

The Oklahoma City Thunder announced that Robinson-Earl will be assigned to the G League’s OKC Blue as he plays his first real action since spraining his ankle on Dec. 15.

Robinson-Earl has missed the last month dealing with an ankle sprain. Before Monday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault revealed Robinson-Earl was getting closer to returning and that a G League assignment will be a step in that process.

In 26 games, Robinson-Earl is averaging 8.5 points and five rebounds. Robinson-Earl is shooting 38.2% from 3 on 2.9 attempts.
