Oubre (knee) is expected to be fully recovered from a torn right meniscus and available for the Suns when the season returns in Orlando on July 31, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports. Oubre tore his right meniscus in late February and subsequently underwent successful surgery. He has has been able to rehab at home during quarantine and has apparently not suffered any setbacks. The 24-year-old was second on the Suns in minutes played (34.5), so a return to the rotation would certainly make a significant impact. He also averaged 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game before going down. The Suns have have teams ahead of them to jump for the two potential play-in spots after eight games.
Oubre (knee) is "though the healing process" of his surgery, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports. Oubre hasn't been able to step on the court to test his knee due to coronavirus concerns, but it's a good sign that he's ready to take that step. All signs are pointing toward Oubre being ready for the Suns' 2020 training camp.
Oubre (knee) indicated that he's continuing to make progress in his recovery from surgery to repair a torn meniscus while conducting his rehab at home, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports reports. "I've just been staying on top of myself and pushing myself and doing everything [team trainers are] telling me to do to the best of my abilities," Oubre said. "So I've been having to be my own trainer throughout this whole thing, but that's how it goes." Oubre had been sidelined for seven games following the procedure before the NBA suspended its season March 12. The swingman likely wouldn't have been ready to return to the court had the season concluded in mid-April as originally scheduled, but the league's ongoing suspension looks as though it could provide enough time for Oubre to recover from surgery and get himself in condition to play again in 2019-20. The Suns likely won't provide a formal update on Oubre's status until the team is allowed to reconvene for workouts.
Oubre (knee) may be able to play this season if games resume in mid-April or later, Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic reports. It seemed unlikely we would see Oubre again this season after he underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in early March. However, if the regular season resumes in some capacity, Oubre could potentially return. The Suns are 26-39, sitting in the 13th spot in the Western Conference. If we have seen the last of Oubre in 2019-20, he'll have finished the season with career highs in points (18.7), rebounds (6.4), assists (1.5), threes (1.9), field-goal percentage (45.2) and three-point percentage (35.2).
Oubre has undergone successful arthroscopic surgery on the torn meniscus in his right knee and is set to be re-evaluated in four weeks. There will only be a handful of games left in the season once Oubre is set to be re-evaluated, so unless the Suns make a big comeback in the standings, it seems unlikely he will return this season. In his absence, Mikal Bridges, Saric and Cameron Johnson (back) figure to continue seeing extra minutes.
