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. Jan 2 - 10:42 PM

Date:

Alex Abrines (concussion-like symptoms) is "fine," and he'll be available to play Monday vs. the Bucks.

Abrines took a nasty spill during Saturday night's win over the Clippers and did not return, but it appears he's avoided anything serious. Cameron Payne (foot) is nearing his return to the court, and once he's back, Abrines could fall out of the rotation entirely.
Jan 1 - 4:00 PM

Alex Abrines is being evaluated for concussion-like symptoms and will not return on Saturday night.

He had a really ugly fall into the first row along the baseline. Abrines was down for a few minutes because he had someone hold his arm as he went to the locker room. Even with Victor Oladipo back, he was still in the rotation.

Alex Abrines scored 10 points on 2-of-11 shooting in 27 minutes on Thursday vs. the Grizzlies.

He took eight attempts from deep, connecting on two of them. The rookie added three rebounds and nearly matched his career high for minutes due to the lopsided score. He's averaging 3.0 triples per game over his last five which makes him a nice 3-point specialist, but he doesn't bring anything else to the table right now and will eventually lose minutes when Victor Oladipo (wrist) returns.

Alex Abrines scored 14 points with two rebounds, one block and four triples in 22 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

The rookie hit 5-of-9 shots from the field and he's taking advantage of some extra playing time with Victor Oladipo (wrist) on the shelf. He's now averaging 10.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.8 triples over his last five games in just 19.2 minutes, but he's strictly a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues for now.

Alex Abrines finished Sunday's game with 10 points, three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes off the bench.

Victor Oladipo (wrist) was out of commission again and Abrines took advantage of the situation. He had one standout game with 18 points in 30 minutes on Wednesday, but anyone who chased that high should feel free to cut Abrines for someone with longer-term value.

Alex Abrines scored just three points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in six minutes on Friday.

Well, that one 18-point game was fun. Abrines will likely fall out of the rotation once Victor Oladipo (wrist) is back.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 10:46:00 PM

Thunder rookie Alex Abrines poured in a career-high 18 points with five 3-pointers on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

Abrines got extra looks with Victor Oladipo (wrist) out and Anthony Morrow playing poorly, and he made the most of his extended minutes. He was confident playing off-ball tonight but there are multiple things working against him in fantasy -- Oladipo is day-to-day, and Abrines blew up against a terrible Pelicans defense. Wait until he does this a few more times to give him a look.

Alex Abrines (hip) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

He could get out there for some garbage time minutes, but Abrines isn't going to be on the floor enough to matter in any setting.
Wed, Oct 26, 2016 12:48:00 PM

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.
Tue, Oct 25, 2016 04:24:00 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.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 03:35:00 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.
Thu, Oct 20, 2016 03:18:00 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.
Tue, Oct 18, 2016 02:56:00 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.
Mon, Oct 17, 2016 02:04:00 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.
