Alex Abrines (hip) went through a full practice on Tuesday and Billy Donovan expects to have him available for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the 76ers.

He'll likely be available to play, but that doesn't mean he'll actually step foot on the court. Abrines can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Oct 25 - 4:24 PM

Alex Abrines (hip) was limited during Sunday's practice and Billy Donovan would not commit to him being ready for opening night.

While Abrines is making progress in his recovery, he's still not able to take contact, and with the regular-season just three days away, we're going to consider him doubtful for opening night. That being said, Abrines probably won't be in the rotation all that often this season, so whether he plays or not will have no bearing in fantasy hoops.
Oct 23 - 3:35 PM

Alex Abrines (hip) was limited to some light shooting during Thursday's practice.

Abrines' hip injury doesn't sound all that serious, so he should be good to go once the regular season tips. However, he's not going to have a large enough role in the rotation to command fantasy value in any setting.
Oct 20 - 3:18 PM

Alex Abrines (hip flexor) has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason game against the Nuggets.

With Abrines on the sidelines Tuesday night, Semaj Christon should be able to pick up some extra minutes, although neither of these guys will have any fantasy value when the regular season begins.
Oct 18 - 2:56 PM

Alex Abrines (hip flexor) did not practice on Monday.

He suffered the injury on Sunday, but it doesn't sound serious. Abrines has shown some solid defense to go with his shooting touch, so he could get in the rotation at times.
Oct 17 - 2:04 PM

Thunder SG Alex Abrines didn't return to Sunday's game after bruising his right hip.

Abrines has impressed coach Billy Donovan this preseason, but he has an uphill battle to earn a spot in the rotation. Consider him day-to-day.
Oct 16 - 9:40 PM

Alex Abrines scored 19 points with two rebounds, one steal and five 3-pointers in 34 minutes on Thursday.

He is really impressing coach Billy Donovan with his defense and he's coming around as a more complete scorer. He didn't have any 3-pointers in his previous two games and only had three two-point makes in his three preseason games. Abrines doesn't have much fantasy value.
Oct 13 - 11:52 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said Alex Abrines did "some really good things" for the Thunder in the preseason.

"He’s got a calmness about him, he’s got a confidence and belief in himself," Donovan said. He did look good as a shooter and even defended well over in Spain. Although, it's probably best to take this with a grain of salt considering Barcelona was his former team. He'll be fighting for a rotation spot.

Oct 8 - 7:08 PM

Alex Abrines made 4-of-5 from the field for 12 points with one rebound and four 3-pointers on Monday.

He can shoot it and all of his shots were from deep in this game. Abrines isn't really going to be asked to do anything else on offense and will compete as a second-unit guy.
Oct 3 - 5:25 PM

Thunder sign G Alex Abrines.

He is on the Spanish National Team and won a gold medal in the 2011 Europe Under-18 Championship. Last year in the Euroleague, the 22-year-old guard averaged 9.6 points, 2.2 boards, 1.1 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.7 treys. He's very unlikely to be a fantasy factor.

Alex Abrines has agreed to sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Abrines will sign a three-year deal worth a total of $18 million, according to EuroHoops.net. The 22-year-old has had success in Euroleague, but he's unlikely to have much value in standard fantasy leagues backing up Victor Oladipo.

Alex Abrines has officially parted way with FC Barcelona, according to Sportando.

The 22-year-old is planning on joining the Thunder and Tuesday's buyout with Barcelona is the next logical step in that process. While Abrines had success in the EuroLeague, he'll serve as a backup to Victor Oladipo and won't have much value outside of deep fantasy leagues.

The Thunder will reportedly sign 2013 draft pick Alex Abrines this summer.

Abrines won the EuroLeague 'Rising Star' award last season, and the 22-year-old shooting guard will jump to the NBA thanks to a buyout clause in his contract with Barcelona -- OKC will reportedly pay him $18 million over three years. He's an excellent perimeter shooter, going 41.7 percent from deep last year, and his arrival could be a sign that OKC won't retain Dion Waiters. Abrines could crack the rotation but he's unlikely to make a fantasy impact as a rookie.
Jul 18 - 9:18 AM

Alex Abrines has signed a deal to stay with FC Barcelona in Spain through 2019.

The Thunder selected him with the 32nd pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, but it looks like we won't be seeing him in the NBA any time soon. To make things more difficult, his contract reportedly has a high buyout fee. Abrines is just 21 years old and averaged 9.8 points, 1.8 boards, 1.1 assists and 2.0 3-pointers in Liga ACB last season, so we will continue to track his progress closely.
