Kelly Oubre Jr.
F - GSW
Kelly Oubre Jr. is unlikely to re-sign with the Golden State Warriors this offseason.
This is a wholly unsurprising decision on Oubre's part, especially when considering the certain crowdedness in the Warrior's backcourt this upcoming season. Oubre averaged 15.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists on 43.9% shooting in 2020-2021 for the Dubs.
Golden State Warriors SF/PF Kelly Oubre Jr. (wrist) will not play against the Memphis Grizzlies during Friday's Western Conference play-in game due to a left wrist injury.
Oubre suffered the left wrist injury in late April and has not yet managed to get cleared for return by the Warriors' medical staff. Expect Kent Bazemore to continue playing big minutes in the starting lineup, as he put up double-digit scoring outings in four of his final six starts during the regular season.
Kelly Oubre Jr. will remain out Saturday against the Rockets with a sore left wrist.
This will be the second straight game Oubre is missing. Stephen Curry, Kent Bazemore, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney will be starting for the Warriors.
Golden State Warriors SF/PF Kelly Oubre Jr. (wrist) is tagged as doubtful ahead of Thursday's road game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
A sore left wrist is likely to prevent Oubre from suiting up for the Warriors on Thursday night against the Timberwolves. Fantasy managers can opt for Kent Bazemore as a great streaming option or salary saver in DFS contests, as Bazemore went off for 19 points and six steals in his last game against the Wizards prior to entering the league's COVID-19 protocols. Bazemore is slated to start on Thursday and can be salaried at $5,300 on FanDuel.
Kelly Oubre Jr. collected 23 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block across 32 minutes on Friday.
The Warriors may have something with this Kelly Oubre sixth man approach. Oubre was stellar on Friday and notched his second-most productive performance in his last ten games. He pulled down 46 fantasy points (DraftKings) while recording multiple entries in every category. The thread line linking the production of Stephen Curry and Oubre rang true again against Denver. The pair combined for 55 points and continue to be a premier stack option in DFS.
