Oubre is expected to undergo PRP injections to his right knee, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
Oubre has been dealing with some soreness in his right knee since the opening round of the playoffs. A recent MRI cleared him of any sort of structural damage, but the injections should help with the pain and allow Oubre to make a full recovery during the offseason. The recent procedure is only expected to keep him sidelined for two weeks, so he's in no danger of missing any significant time. Oubre saw an increased role during his second year in the league, finishing with averages of 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds across 20.3 minutes while operating as a key reserve off the bench.
Oubre will be absent from Sunday's Game 4 against the Celtics due to a suspension, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Oubre, who was ejected after just five minutes of playing time for shoving Kelly Olynyk to the deck after a hard screen set by Olynyk, was given a suspension by the league for his action. Oubre has played a significant role off the pine for the Wizards this postseason, averaging 6.9 points and 2.9 rebounds across 19.1 minutes per game (prior to Game 3's five-minute outing). While his statistics certainly aren't eye-popping, he's still provided quality minutes off the bench and played well on defense. In his stead, expect reserve forward Bojan Bogdanovic to see additional run, as he collected 19 points and 10 rebounds across 29 minutes during Game 3 (when Oubre was ejected).
Oubre finished with just two points (1-2 FG) across five minutes before being ejected from Thursday's 116-89 victory over the Celtics.
Oubre was ejected after just five minutes of playing time for shoving Kelly Olynyk after his hard screen sent Oubre to the deck. The flagrant two will likely warrant suspension consideration from the league, with that news coming likely sometime Friday or Saturday prior to Game 4 on Sunday.
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. While Tuesday's activity is a good sign for his availability for Wednesday's tilt against the Hawks, he should still be considered a game-time decision for now. Look for additional updates to come following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
