Oubre agreed Thursday to a two-year, $26 million-plus deal with the Hornets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Charlotte will mark Oubre's third destination in three seasons, with the wing making stops in Golden State, Phoenix and Washington -- the team he began his career with. Oubre has started 105 of his past 111 games, averaging 17.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.6 minutes. However, with the Hornets, it appears he may come off the bench in a sixth-man capacity. He'll be competing for minutes with Terry Rozier, Gordon Hayward, Miles Bridges and rookie James Bouknight. Much of how successful Oubre is in 2021-22 may depend on how often coach James Borrego deploys small-ball lineups. Oubre ranked 124th in fantasy production last season, and it seems likely that he'll be out of the top 100 again.
Oubre (wrist) has not been cleared for on-court basketball activities and will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days, Wes Goldberg of The San Jose Mercury News reports. It looks like Oubre will miss Golden State's play-in games due to a left wrist injury that has kept him sidelined since April 29. Kent Bazemore and Jordan Poole should continue to see increased workloads while Oubre remains on the sidelines.
Oubre (wrist) will be re-evaluated in one-to-two weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Oubre had already been ruled out of Thursday's game, and the Warriors have now confirmed that he's dealing with an injury that will carry a longer timetable. The athletic wing figures to miss three more games, at minimum, and it's very possible he could be sidelined through the end of the regular season, and perhaps into the play-in tournament, should that be where Golden State ends up. On a more positive note, Oubre will not need surgery. Had that been necessary, he'd likely be facing a much longer recovery period.
Oubre (wrist) will not play Thursday against the Thunder. Oubre missed the entirety of the Warriors' four-game road trip, and he'll miss at least one more game as he battles discomfort in his left wrist. Expect veteran Kent Bazemore, who's averaged 7.5 points, 7.8 boards, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.3 blocks over the last four games, to remain in the starting lineup in Oubre's place.
Oubre (wrist) will not play in the Warriors' next two games Monday and Tuesday against New Orleans, Drew Shiller of Warriors Outsiders reports. Oubre had already been ruled out of Monday's game, but coach Steve Kerr informed the media that the wing won't be re-evaluated until the team returns to the Bay Area later in the week. At this stage, it's unclear just how much time Oubre might miss, but the best-case scenario is that he's back on the floor for Thursday's home matchup against Oklahoma City.
