Kelly Oubre Jr. to re-sign with the Suns

Kelly Oubre Jr. is coming back to the Phoenix Suns on a two-year, $30M contract. The Washington Wizards traded Oubre Jr. midseason to the Suns last year.

Fantasy Impact

Oubre Jr. scored 15.2 PPG across both teams, but saw major scoring improvements once he left the Wizards; in fact, his average jumped from 12.9 to 16.9 PPG once he joined the Suns. Given that Phoenix will likely be a lottery-bound team for the foreseeable future, the 23-year-old forward will continue to receive plenty of playing time as they attempt to crawl out of Western Conference cellar.

Suns extend qualifying offer to Kelly Oubre Jr.

The Suns extended a qualifying offer to Kelly Oubre Jr. on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Oubre will be a restricted free agent and reports indicate he will receive significant interest from other teams once free agency begins. Oubre was productive down the stretch last year so the Suns would certainly like to keep him, but there's no guarantee he will be back in Phoenix next season.

Kelly Oubre Jr. (thumb) done for the year due to thumb surgery

Kelly Oubre Jr. (thumb) will undergo surgery on his left thumb and miss the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Impact

There's no reason to delay surgery with the Suns playing for nothing more than their draft lottery odds. Oubre enjoyed a breakout season in 2019 and became a full-time starter for Phoenix in the second half. He will finish the season averaging 15.2 points-per-game, although he averaged over 20 a game after the All-Star break. Oubre is headed to restricted free agency.

Kelly Oubre Jr. (thumb) unlikely to play on Thursday

Kelly Oubre Jr. (thumb) is doubtful to play on Thursday against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact

Oubre didn't practice today and didn't offer much in terms of an update when asked about his injury. Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson will be in for big minutes as long as Oubre is out.

Kelly Oubre Jr. (finger) out on Monday

Kelly Oubre Jr. (finger) will miss Monday's game against the Bulls after injuring his left thumb.

Fantasy Impact

Oubre will be replaced by Mikal Bridges in the starting lineup. Oubre has been on fire as a scorer lately so fantasy owners will surely miss having him in their lineups tonight. Monitor Oubre's status heading into Thursday when the Suns will face the Pistons.
