Oubre supplied 11 points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT) and one rebound across 28 minutes in Monday's 116-69 loss to the Jazz.
Oubre's point total led the Wizards' second unit in a game in which they posted a season-low amount of points. The 21-year-old has been in a shooting slump during the last two games, going 4-for-18 -- including 1-for-6 from three-point range -- during that span. Despite the current struggles, Oubre remains a consistent source of offense off the bench and has seen a notable uptick in usage this season. Factoring in Monday's contest, the third-year forward is averaging career highs in shot attempts (9.4), rebounds (5.3) and scoring (11.7).
Oubre totaled 22 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 118-113 loss to the 76ers.
Oubre finished with career highs in scoring and assists despite fouling out, and he has scored in double figures in five of the last six games. With John Wall (knee) out for a couple weeks, the Wizards will need as much help as they can get, especially on offense. Furthermore, Otto Porter struggled (eight points on three-for-14 shooting), and Bradley Beal took an elbow to the face, which limited him to 23 minutes. If Beal misses any time, Oubre and Jodie Meeks would probably earn extra minutes.
Oubre scored 18 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding four rebounds in 23 minutes during Friday's 99-88 win over the Bucks,
Oubre has seen his production take a huge uptick in 2017, largely due to an eight -minute increase in usage up from 20.3 minutes to 28.7 minutes so far this year. He's reached double-digit scoring totals in eight of 17 games played so while he's been a sparkplug off the bench with the second and third units, he doesn't have quite enough output to be a viable fantasy option in most formats, although he may have relevance in the deepest of leagues.
Oubre contributed 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and two steals across 22 minutes during a 110-92 win over the Kings on Monday.
Oubre provided a little bit of everything in the blowout victory. His three assists marked a season high and the eight boards matched a season high. Because of his potential to put up these types of all-around stat lines, Oubre is worth a look, as long as owners are wary of his potential inconsistencies in a bench role.
Oubre will shift to the bench for Friday's game against the Cavaliers.
Oubre has started 6-of-7 games so far this season, as Markieff Morris has been sitting out while working back from sports hernia surgery. However, with Morris back in the lineup, he'll re-enter the starting lineup at power forward, pushing Otto Porter over to small forward and Oubre to the bench. While Oubre is likely to see a decline in his playing time, it may not be by much Friday, as Morris himself is on a minutes restriction of around 15 minutes.
