Golden State Warriors swingman Kelly Oubre Jr. has not yet been cleared for practice and will be reevaluated in 7-10 days as he continues to recover from a wrist injury, according to the team.
Oubre hasn’t played in a game since April 27 due to the injury. He suffered a small avulsion fracture and ligament tear in his left wrist.
This new timetable confirms that Oubre won’t be available for the play-in tournament. The Warriors will face the Memphis Grizzlies on the last day of the regular season to determine which play-in game they’ll be playing in.
A win over the Grizzlies would mean the No. 8 seed and a win-and-in scenario against the seventh seed, which will either be the Portland Trail Blazers or Los Angeles Lakers. A loss would mean a game against the 10th-seeded San Antonio Spurs, with the loser going home and the winner facing the loser of the 7/8 game.
The first round begins next weekend, so Oubre will be reevaluated right around the start of it.
The 25-year-old got off to a brutal start this season before finding a groove, only to suffer this setback a few weeks ago. Oubre is averaging 15.4 points and 6.0 rebounds while shooting 43.9% from the field and 31.6% from 3-point range.
