Alex Abrines (left hip contusion) will not return to Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.
The Thunder are getting a little thin at shooting guard with Andre Roberson (knee) already out, so they may have to go bigger with more Jerami Grant and Josh Huestis. Grant is already on the radar as a pickup, so give him a look if his defense-first style suits you. Feb 14 - 9:29 PM

Alex Abrines made the start Sunday against Memphis, finishing with 16 points over 37 minutes.

Abrines made the start with Carmelo Anthony (ankle) out of the lineup, finishing 6-of-13 from the field, including 4-of-7 from behind the 3-point line. He also added six rebounds with a steal. If 'Melo remains on the shelf it would be Abrines serving as a nice short-term fantasy option and sweet DFS value heading into Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Alex Abrines is starting vs. Memphis on Sunday.

Josh Huestis will come off the bench, but neither guy is a reliable fantasy option even with Carmelo Anthony (ankle) out of the lineup.
Feb 11 - 7:05 PM

Alex Abrines went 1-of-4 from the field in Sunday's loss to the Lakers, finishing with three points, one 3-pointer, one rebound, two assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes.

Abrines had been playing fairly well over the previous two games, but tonight's less-than-stellar outing could be described as a regression to the mean. He did severely outplay starter Terrance Ferguson, and it's worth noting that the lineups that featured Abrines on Sunday had a significantly better defensive rating, so he might be able to work his way into the starting five. Still, even as a starter, he wouldn't be much more than a low-end 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Feb 4 - 6:19 PM

Alex Abrines hit four triples for 14 points and a rebound in 24 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

Terrance Ferguson played just 11 minutes, but his illness may have been a factor. Abrines had 13 points, two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes on Thursday and may be ready to leapfrog Ferguson in the rotation. He's not a standard-league pickup, but keep an eye on him if you need 3-point shooting.
Feb 3 - 12:52 AM

Alex Abrines started the third quarter for Terrance Ferguson (illness) on Thursday, finishing with 13 points, two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against Denver.

Ferguson was available, so he should be OK for the next game on Friday. Leave Abrines on the wire.
Feb 2 - 1:15 AM

Alex Abrines played only three minutes vs. the Sixers on Sunday.

Abrines is one of the candidates to replace some of Andre Roberson's production, but the early returns weren't encouraging. Terrance Ferguson got the start, and both he and Josh Huestis look more promising for owners scouring the wire in deep leagues.
Jan 28 - 9:48 PM

Alex Abrines (groin) had one rebound in three minutes off the bench on Sunday.

Abrines wound up sitting until garbage time tonight, while rookie Terrance Ferguson played 18 minutes as a starter and Josh Huestis logged 27 minutes off the bench. This could have been a simple precaution to avoid aggravating Abrines' groin injury, but even at full strength he's not worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues.
Jan 7 - 11:36 PM

Alex Abrines (strained groin) is reportedly available for Sunday's game vs. Phoenix.

Terrance Ferguson is expected to start but Abrines' return is great news for OKC's wing depth, since Andre Roberson (knee) is still out of commission.

Alex Abrines went through practice Saturday and will be evaluated tomorrow.

Terrance Ferguson is expected to start and the Thunder are still without Andre Roberson (knee). Abrines has probably dropped on the depth chart with Ferguson having a red-hot week.
Jan 6 - 2:42 PM

Alex Abrines (strained right groin) will not play on Thursday vs. the Clippers.

Andre Roberson (knee) is also out, so the Thunder will give rookie Terrance Ferguson another start after his 24-point night on Wednesday. Abrines can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 4 - 9:17 PM

Alex Abrines (strained right groin) is inactive for Wednesday's game.

Terrance Ferguson started tonight's game in place of Andre Roberson (knee), while Josh Huestis will come off the OKC bench. There's no word on the severity of Abrines' injury, so we'll consider him questionable to return Thursday vs. the Clippers.
Jan 3 - 10:53 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said Alex Abrines needs to improve defensively to earn more playing time.

Despite being able to contribute on the offensive end, Abrines has played fewer than 10 minutes in four of the Thunder's last six games due to his defensive lapses. "Listen, he's never gonna be Andre Roberson," Donovan said. "He's just not. But he still has the ability, I think, to be a good team defender." Abrines is averaging just 2.3 points in 11.6 minutes over OKC's last ten games. He should be left on the waiver wire.

Alex Abrines started for Paul George (knee) on Friday but played just 10 minutes and didn't score.

Josh Huestis started the second half for Abrines and scored seven points, although there are no reports of an injury. George is iffy for Sunday against Dallas, but even if he's out there's no clear-cut winner in fantasy not named Russell Westbrook.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 10:35:00 PM

Alex Abrines is listed as the starter for Friday night against the Bucks.

The last time Paul George (knee) was out, Abrines was in the starting lineup and he's averaged 31.5 minutes per game over his four starts. Abrines averaged 12.8 points, 2.5 boards, 1.0 steals and 3.3 treys, so he's a possible option in DFS or as a streamer.
