Suns' Kelly Oubre: Doubtful Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) is doubtful Saturday against the Heat.

Oubre is still recovering from right knee surgery, and it's unlikely he makes his return Saturday. Assuming he's out, his next chance to take the floor arrives Monday against the Thunder.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) will not play Thursday against the Pacers, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Coach Monty Williams noted that the forward "played a little" in Wednesday's practice, but he saw nothing to merit Oubre playing Thursday. It at least sounds like Oubre is making some progress. His next chance to play arrives Saturday against the Heat.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Unlikely to play vs. Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's matchup against the Pacers.

There hasn't been much word regarding Oubre's rehab lately, so it's not surprising that he's listed as doubtful. It remains to be seen if he'll play at all this season, though there's certainly an increased chance of that happening if the Suns can miraculously make the playoffs.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) won't play Tuesday against the Clippers, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Oubre is currently recovering from a torn right meniscus suffered back in February. The 2015 first-round pick has yet to participate in full-contact practice since entering the NBA bubble, so it doesn't appear likely that he'll be back on the court with the Suns anytime soon.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Still not taking contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suns head coach Monty Williams confirmed Monday that Oubre (knee) has yet to take contact in practice since joining the team in Orlando for the resumption of the season, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports. "I don't have an update on Kelly at all," Williams said, when asked about the wing's status.

After wavering on whether to join the Suns in the NBA bubble, Oubre ultimately made the trip to the Walt Disney World complex, but he hasn't demonstrated much meaningful progress in his recovery from the right knee surgery he required March 3. While Williams suggested that Oubre has been able to complete some on-court work and looks great physically, the lack of contact work to date makes it safe to rule him out for at least the Suns' first game of the regular-season restart Friday against the Wizards, and likely additional contests beyond that.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Will return if 'mentally right'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) said he must be "mentally right" to return from his injury and suit up for the Suns in the resumption of the 2019-20 season, Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic reports. "It's a mental thing," Oubre said after Tuesday's practice. "I'm more 90 percent mental, 10 percent physical. I'm strong, of course. I'm continuing to get stronger each and every day, but mentally, it's a lot thrown at me in a short amount of time for me to get out there and resume [a] high level of playing as everybody expects of me."

Phoenix is six games behind the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoff picture, making it unlikely the team will be able to make up the ground during the eight seeding games. Having Oubre around would make the club more competitive, as he's carved out a legitimate starting role with the Suns and has proven to be a two-way threat. While his rehab is going well by all accounts, being 100 percent comfortable while on the court is important for Oubre to minimize re-injury risk and play well. If he ends up sitting out the remainder of the season, Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson and Dario Saric could see expanded roles.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Mostly rehabbing in bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) is doing a "little bit" of on-court work at practice but is mostly doing rehab work, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Coach Monty Williams described Oubre as "looking great" but it remains unclear if he'll participate in the Suns' upcoming games -- the first of which is July 31 against the Wizards. If Oubre is unable to play, Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson and Dario Saric could see expanded roles.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Not ruled out for Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Suns haven't officially ruled Oubre (knee) out from being available when the NBA season resumes in Orlando on July 31, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Last month, reports surfaced indicating that Oubre would miss the remainder of the season while recovering from a torn right meniscus. However, during an interview Monday, Suns general manager James Jones left the door open for the wing to return to action at some point in Orlando. Specifically, Jones noted that Oubre has continued to rehab his knee in Phoenix and has been present at team workouts, potentially allowing the 24-year-old to make it back for what remains of the Suns' schedule. If Oubre gets the green light to play, he likely would be in store for a sizable downturn from the 34.5 minutes per game he had averaged through 56 appearances this season.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Won't return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) will miss the resumption of the season to continue rehabbing, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Earlier in the month, there were reports that indicated Oubre would likely play in Orlando. Things have seemingly changed, however, and he will prioritize his rehab. In Oubre's absence, Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson and Dario Saric could see increased roles.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Expects to return in Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) is expected to be fully recovered from a torn right meniscus and available for the Suns when the season returns in Orlando on July 31, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Oubre tore his right meniscus in late February and subsequently underwent successful surgery. He has been able to rehab at home during quarantine and has apparently not suffered any setbacks. The 24-year-old was second on the Suns in minutes played (34.5), so a return to the rotation would certainly make a significant impact. He also averaged 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game before going down. The Suns have teams ahead of them to jump for the two potential play-in spots after eight games.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Healed from knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) is "though the healing process" of his surgery, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Oubre hasn't been able to step on the court to test his knee due to coronavirus concerns, but it's a good sign that he's ready to take that step. All signs are pointing toward Oubre being ready for the Suns' 2020 training camp.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Progressing well from knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) indicated that he's continuing to make progress in his recovery from surgery to repair a torn meniscus while conducting his rehab at home, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports reports. "I've just been staying on top of myself and pushing myself and doing everything [team trainers are] telling me to do to the best of my abilities," Oubre said. "So I've been having to be my own trainer throughout this whole thing, but that's how it goes."

Oubre had been sidelined for seven games following the procedure before the NBA suspended its season March 12. The swingman likely wouldn't have been ready to return to the court had the season concluded in mid-April as originally scheduled, but the league's ongoing suspension looks as though it could provide enough time for Oubre to recover from surgery and get himself in condition to play again in 2019-20. The Suns likely won't provide a formal update on Oubre's status until the team is allowed to reconvene for workouts.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Could play if season resumes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) may be able to play this season if games resume in mid-April or later, Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic reports.

It seemed unlikely we would see Oubre again this season after he underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in early March. However, if the regular season resumes in some capacity, Oubre could potentially return. The Suns are 26-39, sitting in the 13th spot in the Western Conference. If we have seen the last of Oubre in 2019-20, he'll have finished the season with career highs in points (18.7), rebounds (6.4), assists (1.5), threes (1.9), field-goal percentage (45.2) and three-point percentage (35.2).

Suns' Kelly Oubre: To be re-evaluated in four weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre has undergone successful arthroscopic surgery on the torn meniscus in his right knee and is set to be re-evaluated in four weeks.

There will only be a handful of games left in the season once Oubre is set to be re-evaluated, so unless the Suns make a big comeback in the standings, it seems unlikely he will return this season. In his absence, Mikal Bridges, Saric and Cameron Johnson (back) figure to continue seeing extra minutes.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Set for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre (knee) will undergo surgery to repair a meniscus injury in his right knee, John Gambadoro of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Oubre was initially diagnosed with the injury last week, but he was seeking other opinions, likely in hopes of avoiding surgery. The Kansas product has now opted to undergo a procedure on Tuesday, and it's unclear how much time he'll miss. The Suns are expected to provide an update on Wednesday.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Diagnosed with torn meniscus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

This is a tough break for Oubre, who is in the midst of a career year, averaging 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 34.5 minutes per game this season. Per Haynes, the 24-year-old is headed to a specialist to receive a second opinion, at which point a timetable for his return should come into focus. In the meantime, Oubre should be considered out indefinitely.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Out with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre won't play Wednesday against the Clippers due to a knee injury, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

The specifics of the issue remain unclear, but he presumably picked up the injury during Monday's win over Utah when he totaled 18 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes. Dario Saric and Cameron Johnson figured to see increased run during his absence.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Scores 18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre produced 18 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block across 38 minutes during the Suns' 131-111 win over Utah on Monday night.

Oubre shot just 16-for-48 in Phoenix's previous three contests, but he snapped the mini-shooting slump with this efficient outing. Still, Oubre has somewhat alarmingly made just eight of his last 35 3-point tries (22.8 percent). That said, he's averaging 19.4 points per game in February, which is actually higher than his season average.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Poor shooting in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre ended with 15 points (5-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and six rebounds in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 112-106 victory over the Warriors.

Oubre was back in the starting lineup Wednesday after apparently managing to turn up to the team bus prior to the game. His playing time was back up over 30 minutes, however, the production did not follow suit. He shot poorly from the field and failed to add any defensive numbers. That makes three sub-par performances in a row for Oubre who has been a solid midround player all season long. The Suns don't play again until Friday next week, giving Oubre plenty of time to rest before facing the Raptors.

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Rejoins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oubre is starting Wednesday against the Warriors

Oubre was moved to the bench Monday after missing the team bus and had only 10 points, three rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes, his lowest workload since Dec. 27. The 24-year-old returned to his 34.5-minute average in Wednesday's contest.
