Abrines (hip) went through a full practice without restrictions Wednesday, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Abrines exited the team's last game prior to the All-Star break due to a hip contusion, but has seemingly worked his way back to full health. That said, he should still be considered tentatively questionable for Thursday's game against the Kings until more word emerges.
Abrines will not return to Wednesday's games against the Grizzlies with a left hip contusion, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
The severity of Abrines' hip injury is unknown at this time, however this is the Thunders last game before the All-Star break, meaning Abrines has eight days before he'd need to play again. More information on his injury should come out after the game. Prior to the injury, Abrines played 12 minutes and recorded three rebounds.
Abrines drew the start at shooting guard and managed 16 points (6-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt), six rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 win over the Grizzlies.
Abrines became the latest player to take a stab at sticking as the starting two-guard in the wake of Andre Roberson's season-ending knee injury, and he produced markedly better results than previous candidates Terrance Ferguson and Josh Huestis. The 24-year-old Spaniard boasts more scoring upside than either player, and his solid effort on the boards was an added bonus in the win. Abrines has posted three double-digit scoring efforts in six February contests, draining multiple threes in four of those games. Given the solid results he delivered, the second-year pro is likely to be in the starting five again in a showdown against the Cavaliers on Tuesday. However, if both Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony make their respective returns from ankle injuries in that game, Abrines is likely to see a slight downturn in usage.
Abrines will start at shooting guard in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.
Even with the loss of Andre Roberson, Abrines has still come off the bench for the Thunder, but with Russell Westbrook (ankle) and Carmelo Anthony (ankle) out for the seconds straight game, coach Billy Donovan will look to add more offensive firepower to the starting unit and send Josh Huestis back to the bench. Abrines has been averaging over 25 minutes per game in February, and he should see a boost in playing time Sunday with his entrance into the starting five.
Abrines registered nine points (3-7 FG, 3-7 3Pt), one rebound and two steals across 24 minutes in Tuesday's 125-105 win over the Warriors.
Despite Terrance Ferguson being removed from the first unit Tuesday, it was Josh Huestis and not Abrines who drew the start in his stead. Head coach Billy Donovan seems content with keeping the sharpshooting Abrines on a second unit that is often starved for offense, and the 24-year-old Spaniard has responded with a strong start to February. Factoring in Tuesday's production, Abrines is averaging 9.8 points (on 46.2 percent shooting, including 41.7 percent from distance) and 1.3 rebounds across 25.8 minutes over the first four contests of the month.
