Luwawu-Cabarrot was traded to the Thunder on Thursday in a three-team deal, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Thunder were looking to get Carmelo Anthony and his $27.9 million contract off their books and were able to do so in Thursday's trade, which netted the team Luwawu-Cabarrot and Dennis Schroder. Luwawu-Cabarrot is only 23 years old and still has some upside, which the Thunder will look to maximize if they opt to keep him on the roster ahead of the regular season. However, the 6-foot-7 forward shot just 33.5 percent from deep last season and averaged just 15.5 minutes, so he wasn't a fantasy contributor. That shouldn't change despite the move to Oklahoma City considering Luwawu-Cabarrot will likely just be a depth piece once again.
Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is no longer listed on the injury report for Game 1 of the semifinals against the Celtics. Luwawu-Cabarrot sat out the final 17 games of the regular season with a knee injury and has yet to see the floor in the playoffs as well. However, it appears that's simply due to the fact that he's out of the rotation entirely, rather than the injury continuing to linger. Despite being healthy, Luwawu-Cabarrot is a non-factor for those playing postseason DFS contests and season-long leagues.
Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) has been ruled out for Game 2 against the Heat on Monday, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The Sixers continue to remain mum on Luwawu-Cabarrot's recovery and at this point, it's unclear if he'll be available at any point during the playoffs. If he does end up getting cleared at some point, Luwawu-Cabarrot still likely wouldn't be in the rotation, so he's not someone to monitor for fantasy purposes. He'll have an additional four days of rest prior to Game 3 on Thursday.
Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is listed as out for Game 1 against the Heat on Saturday. Luwawu-Cabarrot hasn't played since March 11 while dealing with tendinitis in his knee. Even if he regains his health in time for Game 2 on Monday, he likely wouldn't be in store for many minutes off the bench as the Sixers tighten up their rotation in the playoffs.
Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's season finale against the Bucks. Luwawu-Cabarrot finishes the 2017-18 campaign missing the final month of the season due to a knee injury. While the 22-year-old wing was apart of the regular rotation early on in the season, he appeared to fall out in the second half, averaging just 7.0 minutes over the final nine games he played in. While Luwawu-Cabarrot will be back with the Sixers heading into the 2018-19 season, the Sixers young core is still pretty much intact, so he'll likely have a tough time generating a much larger role in his third season.
