KELLY OUBRE JR. (SF)
  • Jul 21 2016, 10:59 AM

    Update: Oubre finished his five game Las Vegas Summer League tour with 19.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game earning him a spot on the All-NBA Summer League second team.

    Analysis: The one year removed one-and-done stole the show this summer excelling in many facets of his game. Over the five game stretch, Oubre led Washington in the scoring, rebounding and steals departments. Last season proved to be a bit of a learning curve for the rookie, but with fellow teammate Alan Anderson still without a contract, it appears Oubre could be looked upon to take big strides for the Wizards this season. Even though Oubre was very impressive, he still shot just 25 percent from three-point land during summer league play. If the 20-year-old develops a more consistent jumper before the season rolls around, he could be ready to take that next step.

    Update: Oubre averaged 10.7 minutes per game in his rookie season, failing to get significant playing time when Washington was healthy.

    Analysis: Oubre started the 2015-16 season buried on the depth chart behind Otto Porter and Jared Dudley. The 15th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft averaged a meager 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. His best stretch occurred during the second half of December when Oubre stepped into the starting lineup for an injured Porter. He averaged 9.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per contest over that stretch while playing an average of 24.9 minutes per game. With a year under his belt, Oubre should see improvement next season, but is expected to remain behind Porter on the depth chart.

    Update: Oubre had seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 19 minutes during the Wizards' 121-103 win over the Nets on Wednesday.

    Analysis: Oubre had seen just 15 minutes over his last six appearances, but received a chance to play decent minutes during Wednesday's lopsided win. The Wizards face a must-win matchup on Friday versus the eighth-seeded Pistons, and a loss would officially remove Washington from the playoff race. If the Wizards lose on Friday, Oubre could very well see increased action in the final three games of the season.

    Update: Oubre provided four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, and two steals in Monday's 124-81 win over the Pistons.

    Analysis: Oubre didn't play until the Wizards held a 33-point lead with 10 minutes to go in the game. With Otto Porter healthy, the rookie has only logged double-digit minutes twice since the start of February. As long as the Wizards remain healthy, don't expect Oubre to see major playing time on a consistent basis.

    Update: Oubre provided two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound in eight minutes in Thursday's 99-92 loss to the Bucks.

    Analysis: Oubre has seen his playing time dwindle as the season has progressed. After averaging 15 minutes per game in December, he saw his minutes drop to 13 in January and he has yet to log over 8 minutes in February. His lack of playing time is in part due to the return of Otto Porter from a hip injury. Head coach Randy Wittman also tends to favor veterans like Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden, which could result in Oubre drawing the short straw for playing time the remainder of season.

    Update: Oubre will return to his role coming off the bench for Monday's matchup with Boston, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

    Analysis: Oubre started the last three games in place of Otto Porter (hip), but now that Porter is back Oubre will be a bench player once again. Porter will likely play less than usual in his first game back, meaning Oubre could see more than his average of 13.4 minutes per game when coming off the bench on Monday.

    Update: Oubre is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Indiana.

    Analysis: With Otto Porter sitting out Friday with a hip injury, Oubre will draw into the starting five for just the sixth time all season. He's averaging 8.6 points on 53.6 percent shooting in his previous five starts.

    Update: Oubre is expected to start in place of Otto Porter (hip) on Friday against the Pacers, the Washington Post reports.

    Analysis: Porter made the trip with the team in Indianapolis, but he'll sit out after injuring his right hip during Wednesday's win over Milwaukee. As such, Oubre is set to serve as the fill-in, and he should see an expanded role. However, coach Randy Wittman has tended to favor veterans like Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden, so Oubre remains a rather risky daily play.

    Update: Oubre provided 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block across 32 minutes in Saturday's 111-96 win over the Nets.

    Analysis: It was one of Oubre's best games as a pro, and notable in the fact that he continued to start at small forward and played 30-plus minutes, despite Otto Porter (thigh) returning from a three-game absence. Porter played only 19 minutes off the bench, and it's possible that the Wizards could limit him a little over the next couple of games while he works his way back into shape. That could allow Oubre to enjoy some relevance in deep leagues for a little bit longer, but he'll likely see his playing time shrink considerably once January arrives.

    Update: Oubre offered 10 points (3-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and seven rebounds in 20 minutes during the Wizards' 100-91 win versus the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Analysis: Oubre had four fouls, otherwise he might have been able to stay on the floor for longer after logging 33 minutes in Monday's start versus the Kings. The Wizards are now 3-0 with Oubre as a starter. However, his place in the starting lineup will likely disappear once Otto Porter (thigh) is able to make his return to action.

    Update: Oubre will get his second consecutive start at small forward on Monday against the Kings, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

    Analysis: With Otto Porter (thigh) likely out again Monday after missing shootaround, Oubre should be in line for some increased run in the lineup. Oubre's first career start came Saturday against the Hornets, and he put up eight points and five rebounds in 22 minutes. He could fill in temporarily as a solid value option in DFS formats, but don't expect too much quite yet in the long run out of the rookie, as he'll likely assume a low-usage bench role once Porter returns.

    Update: Oubre produced eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt), five rebounds, and one block across 22 minutes in Saturday's win over the Hornets.

    Analysis: Oubre battled foul trouble early on in his first career NBA start, but he settled down and gave the Wizards some quality minutes. He'll likely continue to remain with the starting five so long as Otto Porter (thigh) is out, but with Porter not expected to miss significant time, Oubre's fantasy value mostly lies in the short term.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Oubre will get his first career start at small forward in Saturday's game against the Hornets, the Washington Post's Jorge Castillo reports.

    Analysis: Oubre earned the start after Otto Porter was ruled out Saturday. The rookie poured in 18 points with three rebounds in Wednesday's game against the Spurs, so there is some upside here. However, Oubre does have the label of a bit of a project, and the Wizards would not be giving him so many minutes if they were not devastated by injuries.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Oubre saw only two minutes of court time in Tuesday's 123-106 loss to the Pacers.

    Analysis: Oubre only entered the game when the outcome was already well in hand, and didn't see the floor at all in the Wizards' previous game against the Pistons on Saturday. It appears the 26 minutes he saw back on Nov. 10 against the Thunder was just a blip on the radar, as both Nene Hilario and Bradley Beal were sitting out that game with injuries. With both players back healthy and at least two other players sitting above him on the depth chart at shooting guard and small forward, Oubre's usage off the bench should continue to remain minimal.
