Abrines is out for rest Tuesday against the Bucks, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Abrines will get the night off to help stay fresh for the regular season. In his stead, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Jerami Grant and Hamidou Diallo should all see extra run.
Abrines posted 10 points (2-6 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 19 minutes during Sunday's 113-94 win over the Hawks.
Abrines has drained two threes in each of the three preseason games thus far, and his outside shooting offers hope that he'll be a part of the regular rotation, especially with Andre Roberson (kneecap) sidelined for at least two months. With that being said, Abrines is best reserved for use in the deepest leagues.
Abrines tallied just six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt), and three rebounds in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 97-91 preseason loss to the Pistons.
Abrines was questionable heading into the game with a back concern, however, he was able to take his place on the bench. That was where the good new finished as he finished with just six points and three rebounds in his 16 minutes. The Thunder views him as a spot-up shooter at this stage and his lack of supporting stats will likely ensure he remains a standard league afterthought at this stage.
Abrines (back) will be limited during Wednesday's game against Detroit, Brett Dawson of The Athleticreports.
The Thunder initially said Abrines wouldn't play, but he's now listed as available, though coach Billy Donovan indicated that he'll only be available for limited minutes while working back from a back injury.
Abrines has been held out of some contact drills recently due to lower back spasms, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Considering Abrines has still been able to do non-contact work, it doesn't sound like anything overly serious. Still, there's a chance it forces him to sit out Sunday's intra-squad scrimmage and potentially even Wednesday's preseason opener against the Pistons. Abrines is a candidate to potentially see added reps to start the year with Andre Roberson (knee) potentially missing the first few months of the season.
