Alex Abrines started in place of Victor Oladipo (back) on Sunday, posting 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting with three 3-pointers and three rebounds in 35 minutes.
It's not the return opportunistic owners were hoping for after Friday's 19-point outburst, but keep in mind that game came vs. the Lakers. Oladipo warmed up prior to tonight's game and it sounds like he's close to a return, so there's no real incentive to hold Abrines in season-long leagues. Feb 26 - 9:55 PM

Alex Abrines is listed as a starter for Sunday's game.

Victor Oladipo (back) isn't quite ready to return tonight, so Abrines will get another crack at the starting gig. He's coming off a career-high 19 points with five 3-pointers, and is worth a look for temporary value.
Feb 26 - 6:46 PM

Alex Abrines scored 19 points and hit five 3-pointers in Friday's win over the Lakers.

The rookie got the start with Victor Oladipo (back) out and made the most of his 29 minutes. The points were a career-high and the five triples matched his career-high, and he shot 7-of-13 from the field and added two rebounds. Unless we hear that Oladipo will miss more time, Abrines is just a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues.
Feb 24 - 11:07 PM

Alex Abrines will start for Victor Oladipo (back) on Friday against the Lakers.

He should have by far his best chance at minutes with Dipo out and Anthony Morrow in Chicago. Abrines isn't going to do much outside of shoot, so he's only a stream in deep leagues.
Feb 24 - 7:52 PM

Alex Abrines has been named as Joel Embiid's (knee) replacement for the Rising Stars Challenge.

Abrines has had a few impressive performances this season when given the minutes, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do during All-Star weekend. However, as the third-string two-guard in OKC, Abrines has zero fantasy value.
Feb 15 - 11:48 AM

Alex Abrines (back) scores two points with one rebound, three assists and one steal in nine minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

The minutes just aren't there for Abrines and tonight was an extreme case because Andre Roberson played so much against LeBron James.
Feb 9 - 10:52 PM

Alex Abrines (back) is available to play against the Cavs on Thursday.

He did some post-practice shooting today and there's no word of him being limited. Abrines may not be in the rotation tonight.
Feb 9 - 6:30 PM

Alex Abrines tweaked his back on Monday.

He's been dealing with back issues since Jan. 31, but suffered an apparent aggravation during his eight minutes against the Pacers. Abrines could get some time off to get right, which means more minutes for Anthony Morrow. Most fantasy owners can ignore this.
Feb 8 - 3:20 PM

Alex Abrines (back) was available to play on Sunday but didn't actually step foot on the court.

"It was just kinda a game thing, the way the game was going," said head coach Billy Donovan when describing why Abrines picked up the DNP-CD despite being available. "It has nothing to do with his back at all." This won't be the first healthy DNP-CD Abrines picks up this season. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 5 - 6:28 PM

Alex Abrines (back) is available to play against the Blazers on Sunday.

He may not be in the rotation after Anthony Morrow had a good game with 15 points on Friday. Abrines not worth grabbing in most leagues.
Feb 5 - 1:25 PM

Alex Abines (back) did some light shooting on Saturday and remains day-to-day.

That sets him up to be questionable against the Blazers on Sunday. If he's out, Anthony Morrow could get some extra run. Morrow actually played well on Friday with 15 points, but this is a situation to avoid.
Feb 4 - 2:37 PM

Alex Abrines (back) will not play Friday night vs. the Grizzlies.

This will be the second straight game Abrines has missed after initially suffering from back spasms on Tuesday. Anthony Morrow is expected to see additional playing time off the bench once again. Domantas Sabonis could also see a few extra minutes.
Feb 3 - 6:26 PM

Alex Abrines (back) is out for Wednesday night against the Bulls.

He suffered the injury on Tuesday and did not return. Anthony Morrow could see extra minutes, but there's no need to make a move here.
Feb 1 - 7:56 PM

Alex Abrines (back spasms) is questionable to play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He suffered from back spasms on Tuesday night and was unable to return. Abrines has been in the rotation with minutes in the mid-teens lately, so those minutes could go to Anthony Morrow or Jerami Grant. There's no need to make a move here from a fantasy perspective.
Feb 1 - 2:25 PM

Alex Abrines played through his concussion symptoms on Monday and had six points, two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 14 minutes.

He had scored in double figures in four straight games and is a potential punt play in DFS leagues right now. But he didn't score more than 12 points in any of those four games and tonight's quiet line is also a good argument as to why you shouldn't mess with him on most nights.
