Alex Abrines connected for nine points on 4-of-8 shooting across 18 minutes in Friday's road loss against the Spurs.
Abrines led all Thunder bench players in scoring, but that's about all he does for fantasy owners. He'll chip in with an occasional decent point total, but he doesn't contribute favorably in any other fantasy category. The 24-year-old isn't a terribly attractive option outside of deeper fantasy leagues. Nov 18 - 12:27 AM

Alex Abrines admitted he has been frustrated by the nagging pain in his knees this season.

Abrines missed three preseason games due to knee soreness but has appeared in all 11 regular season contests. However, "small things, like tendinitis or muscle strains," have limited his effectiveness. Abrines is averaging 3.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in 16.3 minutes per game. He is shooting just 35.0 percent from the floor and 30.8 percent from downtown. Abrines should be left on waivers in standard-sized fantasy leagues.

Alex Abrines scored three points with three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

He saw a good amount of his minutes with some of the first-unit guys as coach Billy Donovan staggers his studs. Abrines won't get enough minutes or shots to have value in almost all fantasy leagues.

Alex Abrines (knee) said he expects to play roughly 10 minutes in Tuesday's preseason game against the Nuggets.

Abrines has yet to make his preseason debut as he's been rehabbing a minor knee injury, but he'll get out there tonight and will be fine for opening night. In terms of fantasy hoops, it would take a few catastrophic injuries in OKC for Abrines to establish himself a relevant name in most leagues.

Alex Abrines (knee) participated in non-contact work on Thursday.

Abrines is dealing with a mild strain in his left knee and will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans. Abrines has been beset by nagging knee injuries since last season. With Paul George and Carmelo Anthony now in OKC to supply perimeter scoring, Abrines has limited fantasy value even when fully healthy.

Alex Abrines (knee) and Patrick Patterson (knee) are out Friday against the Pelicans.

Both players are expected to miss more preseason time going forward. Abrines has really had a tough time staying on the court and now the Thunder won't need him for spacing after adding so much shooting.

Alex Abrines (left knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason game against the Rockets.

Abrines will be a non-factor in fantasy hoops this season, regardless of his health.
Oct 2 - 2:27 PM

Alex Abrines (mild left knee sprain) sat out Sunday's scrimmage.

Abrines was a full participant during Tuesday's practice last week, but the Thunder are still taking it easy on him after he hurt his knee at the EuroBasket tournament. This shouldn't be something that lingers into the regular-season, but regardless of health, Abrines will be a non-factor in fantasy hoops this year.

Alex Abrines (knee) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice.

Abrines hurt his knee at the EuroBasket tournament, but he's since recovered and will be fine once the regular season rolls around. In terms of fantasy hoops, there's not much to see here as Abrines will just be playing limited minutes behind Andre Roberson.

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.

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.
