Kelly Oubre Jr.
F - PHO - DTD
Kelly Oubre Jr., who is still rehabbing from right knee surgery, is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat.
Oubre was doubtful for Thursday's game against Indiana, a game which the Suns won, as well, so this news isn't surprising. He's getting closer to returning but even if he were to play on Saturday he's not a recommended DFS play given that he's missed so much time.
Kelly Oubre Jr. has been ruled out of the Suns' game on Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks. Oubre Jr. has been recovering from a knee injury, which has kept him from participating in any game or scrimmage since he joined the Suns in Orlando.
Oubre Jr. was having his best season statistically, averaging 18.7 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game. The Suns could really use Oubre Jr. as they are trying to make a push for the playoffs. Hopefully Oubre Jr. can return to the Suns' lineup during the NBA restart, but he should not he considered in fantasy until he proves to be healthy and in game shape.
Phoenix Suns F Kelly Oubre Jr. (right knee) has been ruled out of Friday's contest against the Washington Wizards.
Oubre has been rehabbing his right knee for months, and according to Suns head coach Monty Williams, "There's no update [on Oubre] at this point." Expect Mikal Bridges to soak up minutes at the SF position for the Suns in Oubre's absence. Bridges is in line to be a solid value play for DFS players against the short-handed Wizards.
Kelly Oubre Jr. has been ruled out of Tuesday's scrimmage per Phoenix Suns' head coach Monty Williams.
Oubre has yet to participate in any team scrimmages or 5-on-5 drills since rejoining the team. He's been working off to the side on his own as he's still rehabbing from meniscus surgery he received in early March. It's looking more and more doubtful that Oubre will be ready for the restart or will even participate at all once it begins. While the team has not officially ruled him out for the season he doesn't seem to be progressing like they hoped. He was having himself a career-year before sustaining the injury back in late February. Cameron Johnson, Mikal Bridges, and Dario Saric, who is dealing with an ankle injury, would soak up Oubre's minutes if he ends up not playing.
Suns' forward Kelly Oubre Jr. has been medically cleared to play, but says his chance to return is '90% mental'. Despite his physical condition, Oubre Jr.'s mentality towards playing is stopping him from committing to a return to play
Coach Monty Williams has expressed interest in having Oubre Jr. in the starting lineup. Oubre Jr. had been having his most productive season prior to his injury. If Oubre Jr. can get himself mentally prepared for the NBA restart, he should be a good fantasy option with a solid floor. Oubre Jr. should be able to return to play and continue on his 18.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game pace.
