According to OKC beat writer Brett Dawson, Alex Abrines (knee) is progressing toward a return to the court.
Abrines injured his knee in Spain's first EuroBasket game, back on September 7th. He's had issues with both knees over the past few years and had platelet-rich plasma injections in his right knee in May. Abrines is back in OKC after sitting out the FIBA tournament, but it is currently unknown if he'll be ready for the start of training camp next week. However, with Paul George now in the mix, Abrines has very limited fantasy value even if he is fully healthy. Sep 19 - 12:07 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Eurobasket tournament.

He suffered a knee injury in Spain's first game vs. Montenegro, but there's no word on the severity. According to the report, this was a mutual decision by the Thunder and the Spanish National Team. Abrines has a few weeks to heal up before the Thunder open training camp, but his outlook this season isn't great with Paul George and Andre Roberson ahead of him on the wings.

Alex Abrines received platelet rich plasma injections in his right knee in May and is hoping that will alleviate discomfort in the future.

Abrines has had issues with both his knees. He missed three games towards the end of the regular season due to a left knee sprain. However, he believes the PRP injections will help him greatly going forward. "This year, we did the right thing, stopping for two weeks, then rehabbing a little bit, starting slowly," said Abrines. "I think it's going to get better, and we don't have repeat it for the next three years at least." Abrines is currently training with the Spanish National Team as they prepare for EuroBasket.

Alex Abrines said he won't play in Summer League this July.

He said he'll be working with the coaches in Oklahoma City this summer. "I know I'm still not the best defender, but I'll keep trying to be the best defender I can," Abrines said. As most have heard, the OKC second unit was thrashed in the playoffs, so any improvement on defense could go a long way for Abrines.
Apr 26 - 5:08 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) returned from a three-game absence on Tuesday and produced six points, two triples, one steal, one block and one turnover in 15 minutes off the bench.

It's unlikely that Abrines will play much more than 15 minutes on Wednesday, so he's can't be considered a viable target in most leagues.
Apr 12 - 4:20 AM

Alex Abrines (knee) said he will play Tuesday night vs. the Timberwolves.

Abrines, who has missed three straight games due to the knee injury, said wants to play because he "needs some rhythm." Even with Russell Westbrook (rest) and Andre Roberson (rest) not playing, OKC will still likely limit Abrines' minutes, so as to avoid a possible re-aggravation of the injury. He should be left on waivers.
Apr 11 - 1:45 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) was present during Monday's practice in Minnesota and he's being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Maybe Abrines can get back for OKC's final two games of the regular-season, but unless a plethora of guys get rested, his playing status will be irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Apr 10 - 4:10 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

He's not even traveling with the team, so there's a good chance he'll miss Tuesday's game in Minnesota as well. Abrines belongs on the waiver wire in all formats.
Apr 9 - 3:42 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

He's likely out for the season. If Andre Roberson (knee) can't play, it'll be Doug McDermott and Semaj Christon getting some added run.
Apr 6 - 6:54 PM

An MRI confirmed Alex Abrines (knee) has a sprain and he is day-to-day.

He's not with the team for the Wednesday game in Memphis, but could re-join them later this week. With Abrines out, there should be a couple extra minutes for Doug McDermott and maybe Semaj Christon.
Apr 5 - 4:26 PM

Alex Abrines was diagnosed with a sprained left knee and will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

He was off to a hot start with 12 points, four 3-pointers and a block in 12 minutes, but he could be looking at a lengthy absence depending on the severity. If he misses time, Victor Oladipo and Andre Roberson could see a small bump, while Doug McDermott could be more involved as well. Abrines is expected to undergo X-rays and an MRI, so expect an update on Wednesday.
Apr 4 - 9:34 PM

Alex Abrines moved to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Blazers, scoring five points in 13 minutes.

Victor Oladipo looked good in 26 minutes, so Abrines can be cut in deeper leagues if you were streaming him for his triples. He shot 2-of-5 from the field and added one rebound, one assist and one triple.
Mar 7 - 11:12 PM

With Victor Oladipo returning to the starting lineup on Tuesday, Alex Abrines (eye) will get bumped back to the bench.

Abrines got scratched in the eye on Sunday night, but coach Billy Donovan said the injury is not serious and that Abrines will not need goggles. Abrines is averaging just 5.4 points and 1.1 rebounds in the 46 games he has played in as a reserve this season. He can be sent back to the waiver wire if he was scooped up in Oladipo's absence.
Mar 7 - 6:28 PM

Alex Abrines (eye) participated during Monday's light practice.

Abrines is reportedly "fine" after getting poked in the eye last night, so for now, we'll be considering him probable for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers. However, Victor Oladipo (back) also practiced on Monday, and if he's able to get back to the court Tuesday night, Abrines will head back to the bench and irrelevancy in most leagues.

Alex Abrines didn't return to Sunday's game after being poked in the left eye in the first half.

Abrines finished scoreless with two assists in just 10 minutes of action, and Doug McDermott started in his place for the second half. Even if Abrines is fine and earns more starts in Victor Oladipo's (back) absence, he's the archetype of a 3-point specialist who offers nothing in other categories. Consider him questionable for Tuesday's home game.
