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.

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.

Alex Abrines (eye) is questionable to return on Sunday.

Abrines was poked in his left eye during the first half and OKC is checking him out, so we should have an update soon. Doug McDermott started the second half in his absence.
Mar 5 - 9:55 PM

Alex Abrines scored 13 points with one rebound, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

Well, so much for losing playing time. Abrines still cannot be trusted because he's making some silly fouls.
Mar 4 - 1:20 AM

Alex Abrines and Domantas Sabonis will start against the Suns on Friday.

You have to think they are on thin ice after some terrible play lately. Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott should still get plenty of minutes off the bench. Abrines isn't a fantasy option.
Mar 3 - 8:30 PM

Alex Abrines scored just six points in a start against the Blazers on Thursday.

While Abrines did hit a big shot late, he played just 10 minutes. Even with Victor Oladipo (back) is unlikely for Friday, Abrines just can't be counted on right now. Doug McDermott looks like he'll be taking minutes away from Abrines.
Mar 3 - 1:35 AM

Alex Abrines started for Victor Oladipo (back) on Tuesday and made all four of his shots, but finished the game with just 11 points, three 3-pointers and nothing else in 26 minutes.

If you rolled him in DFS it sure seemed like a good move at the time and he actually played very well, but just didn't do anything besides hit some shots. Abrines is kind of hot right now, scoring 19, 13 and 11 points in each of his last three games while tallying 11 3-pointers, but he has just one assist, zero steals and zero blocks in those games, negating his fantasy potential. Just keep an eye on him.
Mar 1 - 12:08 AM

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.
