Oubre scored 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 110-103 win over the Cavaliers. While the 22-year-old still struggles with his consistency on offense -- he scored only two points in his final outing before the All-Star break -- Oubre's defense has allowed him to maintain a strong workload from the second unit, and he's played at least 30 minutes in five of the last six games. Expect him to continue seeing plenty of court time as the Wizards' sixth man, at least until John Wall (knee) is back in action.
Oubre tallied 11 points (3-14 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one block in 39 minutes during Saturday's 101-90 victory over the Bulls. Oubre was thrust into the starting lineup in place of Markieff Morris who was ruled out prior to tip-off with an illness. He tied his season-high with 39 minutes but was not feeling it from the floor as he went just 3-of-14 from the field. While he has been given plenty of opportunity after Wall went down, he has shot just 33 percent on 83 field-goal attempts over his last eight outings. He should be better than this moving forward but is still not a must-own player in standard leagues.
Oubre will get the start against the Bulls with Markieff Morris (illness) out. The Wizards will opt to go with a smaller lineup against the Bulls, as Oubre and Otto Porter will start at forward. Look for Mike Scott and Jason Smith to also see an uptick in minutes with Morris sidelined. In nine starts this season, Oubre has averaged 10.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists.
Oubre scored 15 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 32 minutes during Monday's 111-102 win over the Pacers. Oubre came off the bench, but he wound up playing the second most minutes on the team and contributed useful totals across the board. He has an opportunity to contribute for the duration of John Wall's (knee) absence, and performance like this could earn him more minutes alongside Bradley Beal and Otto porter more frequently moving forward.
Oubre collected 26 points (9-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes during Friday's 122-112 victory over Detroit. Oubre came off the bench to record a season-high 26 points on only 14 shot attempts. He has now scored in double-figures in seven straight games while playing at least 25 minutes in all those games. Coach Scott Brooks said before the game that he might be looking to shake things up by making some changes to the starting lineup, and there was speculation Oubre could move into the opening five. This was not the case, however, and Oubre retained his spot on the bench. He has outplayed Markieff Morris of late and should there be any more questionable performances from a team perspective, Oubre could find himself in the starting small forward position, shifting Otto Porter to the power forward.
