  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Leads bench in scoring

    Oubre notched 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 24 minutes during Thursday's 128-101 victory over the Magic.

    Oubre cooked an underwhelming second unit for the tanking Magic, finishing with a plus-41 in the box score. At one point, he was a (distant) second to Tyler Herro in a race for the Sixth Man of the Year Award, but Oubre's production has fallen off considerably down the stretch. He's averaged 10.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 17 games since the beginning of March. Oubre will look to carry Thursday's momentum into Friday's contest against the Bulls.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Poor production continues in loss

    Oubre had two points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal across 17 minutes during Sunday's 119-110 victory over the Nets.

    Oubre bottomed out in the win, amassing a mere two points as his role continues to dwindle. He has now scored few than seven points in five of his past six games, logging more than 20 minutes just once in that span. It certainly has been a rapid decline for Oubre and at this point, he can be safely dropped in all competitive formats.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Strong showing off bench

    Oubre closed with 17 points (6-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 129-108 win over Dallas.

    He led the Hornets' second unit in scoring during the rout, and he was one of five Charlotte players to score at least 17 points with at least three made three-pointers. Oubre has seen his workload decrease in recent games, in part due to his defensive limitations, but over his last 12 contests he's still averaging 14.1 points, 3.8 boards, 2.6 threes and 1.2 assists.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Quiet in lessened role

    Oubre produced nine points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 115-101 loss to the Celtics.

    Oubre picked up three fouls across his limited playing time, but he was still abnormally quiet. Wednesday marked the fourth consecutive contest in which his playing time has decreased. Oubre logged a team-worst minus-24 and was hapless in his defense on Jayson Tatum (44 points, 16-24 FG). Oubre will look to rebound Friday in a high-octane battle against the Pelicans.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Leads bench with 19 points

    Oubre accumulated 19 points (7-15 FG, 5-11 3Pt), four rebounds, five assists and one block over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 119-98 win over the Cavaliers.

    Oubre continued his fine offensive play off the bench recently by scoring in double figures for a sixth straight time. During that span dating back to Feb. 12, the Kansas product has drained a total of 20 threes and is averaging 16.7 points per matchup.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Scores 17 points off bench

    Oubre finished Monday's 130-106 loss to Milwaukee with 17 points (6-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-7 FT), seven rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes.

    Oubre saw a noticeable boost after recording only 24 minutes of court time in Sunday's loss to Detroit. The veteran has proven to be a valuable sixth man for the Hornets and has been instrumental in filling the gap left by Gordon Hayward's ankle injury.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Efficient performance off bench

    Oubre finished with 23 points (8-14 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals in 32 minutes during Friday's 125-93 win over the Raptors.

    Oubre was efficient from the field en route to his 17th game with at least 20 points. With Gordon Hayward (ankle) sidelined indefinitely, Oubre and P.J. Washington, who have both spent time in the starting lineup during Hayward's absence, are expected to have large roles for the Hornets during the stretch run.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Coming off bench

    Oubre will come off the bench Tuesday against the Timberwolves.

    The Hornets will opt to go big, starting Miles Bridges, P.J. Washington and Mason Plumlee. Oubre still figures to see plenty of run as a sixth man. Over the past eight games, he's averaged 17.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.4 minutes.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Mixed bag in start

    Oubre produced 19 points (8-19 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds and one block across 36 minutes during Wednesday's 121-109 loss to the Bulls.

    Oubre started for Gordon Hayward (shoulder) Wednesday, who is out indefinitely with sprained ligaments in his shoulder. The scoring volume was provided, but Oubre accounted for a team-worst minus-20 in the box score. Oubre may shortly be relegated to his sixth-man role, but he should be rostered in standard leagues moving forward. In 2019-20 with the Suns, Oubre averaged 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and two combined blocks/steals per game.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Joins starting lineup

    Oubre will start Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    The 26-year-old will make his first start since Dec. 20 with Gordon Hayward (ankle) facing an indefinite absence. Oubre has averaged 17.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.6 steals in 36.0 minutes across his 10 previous starts this season.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Scores 17 points off bench

    Oubre produced 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 38 minutes during Monday's 116-101 loss to the Raptors.

    Cody Martin (Achilles) didn't suit up and Gordon Hayward played just six minutes before leaving Monday's contest early with an ankle sprain, which opened the door for Oubre to garner extended minutes. He continues to struggle shooting the ball from deep and is connecting on just 16.2 percent of his three-point attempts over his last four games, but he was still able to score in double figures for the third time during that stretch. If Martin and Hayward remain sidelined for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Oubre should be in line for another increased workload.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Scores 21 points off bench

    Oubre accumulated 21 points (7-19 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 28 minutes during Friday's 102-101 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Oubre, along with the entire Hornets roster, struggled shooting the ball in the first half, but they were able to get going in the second half and erased Cleveland's double-digit lead. Oubre finished with 21 points, notching his 16th 20-plus point outing of the season. He also grabbed nine boards, finishing one shy of his second double-double of the campaign. Since returning from a two-game absence due to a sprained ankle, Oubre has averaged 18.0 points per game, but he is shooting just 32.3 percent from the field.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: All-around performance in return

    Oubre racked up 15 points (3-12 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 8-8 FT), three rebounds, three blocks and four steals over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 113-107 loss to the Celtics.

    Oubre returned from a two-game absence due to a left ankle sprain and stuffed the stat sheet. He struggled from the field but salvaged his scoring production by connecting on all eight of his free-throw attempts. The 6-foot-6 forward also made his presence felt defensively by recording season highs in blocks and steals. Oubre has operated as the Hornets' sixth man for the majority of the campaign and is averaging 16.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.1 assists in 28.1 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Ready to go Wednesday

    Oubre (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game at Boston, Bruno Passos of PoundingTheRock.com reports.

    Oubre has sat out the past two games with a sprained left ankle and will retake the court after making his return to practice Monday. He's averaged 17.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 26.2 minutes over the past five games, which was carried by a 39-point effort Jan. 26 at Indiana.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Says he'll play Wednesday

    Oubre (ankle) said he'll be available for Wednesday's contest against the Celtics, Roderick Boone of the Charlotte Observer reports. He's officially listed as probable.

    Oubre has missed two consecutive games due to a left ankle sprain, but he was able to practice Monday and Tuesday and appears to be trending in the right direction. If he is indeed back in the lineup Wednesday, he isn't expected to be limited. He told Boone, "If I'm on the court, I'm giving it 110 [percent]."

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Participates in practice Monday

    Coach James Borrego said Oubre (ankle) participated in practice Monday, but his status for Wednesday's game in Boston is still up in the air, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Oubre has missed two consecutive games due to a left ankle sprain, but he appears to be trending in the right direction. The seventh-year forward has another chance to practice Tuesday, which should provide a better sense of what his official status for Wednesday will be.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Downgraded to out

    Oubre (ankle) has been downgraded to out ahead ahead of Sunday's contest against the Clippers.

    Oubre will miss a second consecutive game due to a left ankle sprain. Gordon Hayward (COVID-19 protocols) and Jalen McDaniels (ankle) are also out, so Cody Martin and P.J. Washington could see increased roles off the bench.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Questionable Sunday

    Oubre (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

    Oubre was unavailable Friday against the Lakers but will have a chance to return to the court Sunday. If he remains out, Miles Bridges and Cody Martin should continue to see increased run.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Won't play Friday

    Oubre (ankle) is out Friday against the Lakers.

    Oubre will be forced to miss at least one game due to a left ankle sprain. Since Gordon Hayward (COVID-19 protocols) is also unavailable, Miles Bridges and Cody Martin should see additional run against the Lakers.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Questionable Friday

    Oubre is questionable for Friday's game against the Lakers due to a left ankle sprain.

    Oubre was dominant in Wednesday's blowout win over the Pacers with a season-high 39 points in addition to five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 35 minutes. However, he apparently sustained an ankle injury during the victory. If the 26-year-old is unavailable against the Lakers, Miles Bridges and Cody Martin should handle additional run.
