The warrior guard Kelly Oubre Jr., who was disqualified from Monday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets at the Chase Center with a left wrist sprain, is commonplace, according to head coach Steve Kerr.
« I spoke to him today, » said Kerr of Oubre, who missed Saturday’s win against the Houston Rockets. « [He] said he was feeling better and I don’t think this will be a long absence. But we’ll just keep saying day by day. »
Oubre injured his left wrist when he landed hard after a dunk attempt in defeating the Washington Wizards last week. It’s the same wrist that Oubre, 25, paused for two games last month.
Against Houston, Kent replaced Bazemore Oubre on the starting line-up and is likely to do so again on Monday night. In 50 games (all starts), Oubre averages 15.3 points at 43.9% shooting, of which 31.7% from 3-point range, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 30.8 minutes per game.
Given Kerr’s comments, it appears that Oubre could return once the game takes place at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.
