Alex Abrines (concussion) scored 11 points in 21 minutes on Sunday, making 4-of-7 shots with three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one turnover.
Abrines didn't play in the regular-season finale vs. Memphis on Wednesday, but his hot shooting from downtown helped buoy a strong bench effort -- the Thunder fell behind 16-4 to begin the game, but once they took the lead they never relinquished it. Despite tonight's line, OKC's offensive usage is so heavily concentrated in the starters that it's impossible to trust Abrines for DFS value. Apr 15 - 9:13 PM

Date:

Alex Abrines (concussion) is available for Sunday's Game 1 vs. the Jazz.

Abrines hasn't seen the court since April 9, but he doesn't figure to be a substantial part of the postseason attack. It's nice that his 3-point shooting will be available to Billy Donovan, though.
Apr 15 - 5:03 PM

Alex Abrines (concussion) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

He's still in the protocol and he didn't take on contact at practice on Saturday. Coach Billy Donovan didn't add much on Abrines at practice, but going through some work at practice should mean he's somewhat close.
Apr 14 - 5:20 PM

Alex Abrines (concussion) is still in the concussion protocol on Friday.

It doesn't sound like he's going to play on Sunday, but the Thunder may not need him if Corey Brewer can give it a go. Abrines will likely only be used situationally if the Thunder need more 3-pointers.
Apr 13 - 3:03 PM

Alex Abrines (concussion) will not play on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

He was put into the concussion protocol yesterday, so no surprise he's out today. The Thunder are going with their normal starting lineup and all eyes will be on Russell Westbrook's chase for 16 boards tonight.
Apr 11 - 6:35 PM

The Thunder announced on Tuesday that Alex Abrines is in concussion protocol.

Abrines will not be able to play in Wednesday's game vs. Memphis, and the Thuder have to hope he is cleared to return by Game 1 of the playoffs, which will be either Saturday or Sunday.
Apr 10 - 1:52 PM

Alex Abrines has concussion-like symptoms and will not return to Monday's game vs. the Heat.

He'll finish with five points, one rebound and one triple in 12 minutes. The Thunder may turn to either Raymond Felton or Terrance Ferguson to pick up a few minutes in the short term. For now, consider Abrines questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Memphis.
Apr 9 - 9:04 PM

Alex Abrines ended up with just four points over 27 minutes in Saturday's 108-102 loss at Houston.

Abrines had a nightmare shooting performance, hitting 1-of-8 from behind the 3-point line, including an ugly 0-of-7 from behind the arc. The Thunder have some depth issues heading into the postseason and that's likely to be their undoing against other deeper clubs in the Western Conference. They need guys like Abrines, Raymond Felton and Jerami Grant to do better if they're going to avoid being one-and-done in the playoffs.
Apr 7 - 11:27 PM

Alex Abrines (hip) scored three points with one steal in six minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

He came off the bench with coach Billy Donovan going with Josh Huestis to start. Donovan has talked about how he likes consistency in his second unit, so maybe this lineup sticks. Abrines is only a 3-pointers specialist in very deep leagues.
Feb 23 - 1:11 AM

Alex Abrines (left hip contusion) participated in non-contact work on Tuesday and went through full practice on Wednesday with no restrictions.

That should put him on track to play against the Kings on Thursday. Abrines suffered the injury on Feb. 14 before the All-Star break, but it sounds like it's a minor ailment. He'll be looking at minutes in the low 20s and only has value in very deep leagues.
Feb 21 - 4:56 PM

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.
Feb 11 - 11:17 PM

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.
