Oubre will be available for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Hawks, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. The news comes as no surprise after Oubre went through a full practice Tuesday, but his name has officially been removed from the injury report, and he'll be available in his usual capacity as the Wizards look to take a 2-0 series lead. In Game 1 on Sunday, Oubre played 19 minutes off the bench and finished with 11 points, three rebounds, an assist, a block and two steals.
Oubre (knee) went through Tuesday's practice, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. After not practicing Monday due to an unspecified knee injury, Oubre was a participant in Tuesday's practice. Assuming he doesn't experience a setback, he should be a go for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Hawks. An official designation will likely come following Wednesday morning's shootaround, though he should be expected to be available.
Oubre did not practice Monday and is considered day-to-day with a knee injury. Oubre played 19 minutes and scored 11 points off the bench in Monday's Game 1 win over the Hawks, and this is the first report of him being bothered by a knee injury. Washington and Atlanta don't play again until Wednesday, so the expectation is that the small forward will be ready to go by then, but his status is still worth monitoring over the next couple of days.
Oubre will start Monday's game in Detroit. Oubre is starting in place of teammate Otto Porter who is out with a back injury. Monday will mark Oubre's third start for the Wizards this season. In his second full season, the Kansas product is averaging just 6.3 points per game and 3.3 rebounds per game.
Oubre finished with 12 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 33 minutes during Saturday's 106-103 loss to the Heat. Oubre drew the start with Otto Porter (back) sidelined due to injury. Oubre has played well over the past 11 tilts, despite coming off the bench, averaging 12.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.0 steals across 26.0 minutes per game while hitting 55.4 percent of his shots. Assuming his role on the team stays as is, he could be worth a pickup off the wire in deeper leagues and may even make for a low-cost DFS option.
