  • Alex Abrines: Likely to sit out rest of 2018-19

    Abrines revealed over the weekend that he expects to remain a free agent for the remainder of the season rather than signing with another NBA or European team, Antonis Stroggylakis of the Eurohoops.net reports.

    Abrines was waived by the Thunder on Feb. 8 after an unspecified personal matter had kept him away from the team for much of the month and a half prior to his dismissal. The Spaniard said he expects to make a statement regarding his situation in the near future, but it doesn't look like he'll pursue employment elsewhere until this summer. The 25-year-old 5.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 triples in 16.0 minutes per game over 174 outings (16 starts) with Oklahoma City during the past there seasons.

  • Alex Abrines: Waived by OKC

    Abrines has been waived by the Thunder, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Abrines had appeared in just two of the past 22 games for the Thunder, who cut ties with the third-year guard Saturday. Once Abrines clears waivers, he'll be free to sign with any team and may be pursued due to his floor-stretching ability. In 31 appearances this year, Abrines averaged 5.3 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.3 threes in 19.0 minutes while shooting an abysmal 35.7 percent from the floor in addition to splits of 32.2 percent from three and 92.3 percent from the line.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Not set to play Thursday

    Abrines (personal) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Abrines will miss his second game in a row due to the personal matter, which had previously kept him unavailable nearly all of January. There's a real possibility that Abrines' status could regularly be in limbo on a game-by-game basis for the rest of the season, so don't be surprised if the Thunder look to add another three-point specialist for the second unit prior to Thursday's trade deadline or via the buyout market.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Sits again for personal matter

    Abrines (personal) was active for Tuesday's 132-122 win over the Magic, despite not being in the arena when the contest tipped off, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

    Abrines had previously been unavailable for the Thunder's final four games of December and most of January while tending to the undisclosed personal matter. After rejoining the team and getting in sufficient practice time, Abrines re-entered the rotation for games Jan. 29 and Feb. 1, but has since been withheld from action for the past two contests. It's beginning to look like recurring absences could be on the docket for Abrines throughout the remainder of the season.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Logs first appearance since Dec. 23

    Abrines (personal) played six minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Thunder's 126-117 win over the Magic, chipping in three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one rebound.

    Abrines hadn't played since Dec. 23 while tending to a personal matter before coach Billy Donovan finally incorporated the third-year wing in the rotation Wednesday. Unsurprisingly, Abrines was eased back into the mix with a minor role, but he could recapture minutes in the teens in future contests. With averages of 5.5 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.4 triples in 19.3 minutes per game on the season, Abrines doesn't offer much value in fantasy settings as anything more than a three-point streamer.

Abrines remains without an official timetable for his return.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Available Thursday

    Abrines (personal) isn't listed on the Thunder's injury report ahead of Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

    Abrines had dressed for both of the Thunder's previous two games, but just as coach Billy Donovan said would be the case beforehand, the reserve shooting guard didn't see action in either contest. Now that he's had some time to get acclimated with the team again, Abrines will likely re-enter the rotation Thursday for the first time since Dec. 23. Abrines was averaging 5.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.4 triples in 19.8 minutes per game for the season prior to missing time due to the personal matter.

    Abrines (personal) has "no timeline for return" coach Scott Brooks stated prior to Wednesday tilt with Philadelphia, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Saturday will mark Abrines' 14th straight absence with a personal issue. Clearly, the Thunder are allowing him all the time he needs to work through whatever the issue is, but it looks likely he'll continue to miss games for the foreseeable future.
