Kelly Oubre Jr. News
Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Kelly Oubre Jr. (hand) will undergo surgery on a torn ligament in his hand and is expected to be sidelined for the next four-to-six weeks. Oubre has been playing through the injury since the first week of the season and was in the midst of a career year. The Hornets will likely turn to Jalen McDaniels to fill the void with Gordon Hayward (hamstring) hobbled as well.
Charlotte Hornets forward Kelly Oubre Jr. (hand) will miss his second consecutive game and third game overall this season. After spraining his hand, and reaggravating it, the team will play it safer by ruling him out ahead of time. Oubre enjoyed a lot of added fantasy value at the beginning of the year when a lot of the team was injured. While he's sidelined, look for Gordon Hayward and Jalen McDaniels to both get some added usage and become solid streaming options.
Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Kelly Oubre Jr. (hand) looks set to miss a second consecutive game Thursday against OKC, with the team listing him as doubtful for the contest. He sprained his left hand versus Portland at the start of the week, and with it being his shooting hand, Oubre Jr. was unable to take the court Tuesday against Golden State. With Oubre Jr. missing, Jalen McDaniels picked up a lot more minutes Tuesday and had a solid game with 12 points, seven rebounds and three assists. It's been a while since he was able to string two strong performances together, but managers should definitely keep an eye on McDaniels until Oubre Jr. is ready to return.
Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Kelly Oubre Jr. had a 29-point outing against the Sixers on Sunday, shooting 11-for-23 from the field with a 3-for-8 effort from downtown in a 131-113 loss. He collected three rebounds as well with one assist, two steals and one block in 37 minutes. The 27-year-old has now scored 20-plus points in eight consecutive games. Injuries have hurt the team badly, but Oubre Jr. likely isn't complaining, as it's allowed him to play a bigger role. Through six games, he's even averaged 38.7 minutes a night this month. Oubre Jr. had only seven games in total with 20-plus points this season before starting his current scoring surge, so he's clearly playing his best basketball of the campaign right now. For the whole season, Oubre Jr. is averaging 20.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.7 steals.
