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.
Apr 11 - 1:45 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) was present during Monday's practice in Minnesota and he's being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Maybe Abrines can get back for OKC's final two games of the regular-season, but unless a plethora of guys get rested, his playing status will be irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Apr 10 - 4:10 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

He's not even traveling with the team, so there's a good chance he'll miss Tuesday's game in Minnesota as well. Abrines belongs on the waiver wire in all formats.
Apr 9 - 3:42 PM

Alex Abrines (knee) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

He's likely out for the season. If Andre Roberson (knee) can't play, it'll be Doug McDermott and Semaj Christon getting some added run.
Apr 6 - 6:54 PM

An MRI confirmed Alex Abrines (knee) has a sprain and he is day-to-day.

He's not with the team for the Wednesday game in Memphis, but could re-join them later this week. With Abrines out, there should be a couple extra minutes for Doug McDermott and maybe Semaj Christon.
Apr 5 - 4:26 PM

Alex Abrines was diagnosed with a sprained left knee and will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

He was off to a hot start with 12 points, four 3-pointers and a block in 12 minutes, but he could be looking at a lengthy absence depending on the severity. If he misses time, Victor Oladipo and Andre Roberson could see a small bump, while Doug McDermott could be more involved as well. Abrines is expected to undergo X-rays and an MRI, so expect an update on Wednesday.
Apr 4 - 9:34 PM

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.
Mar 7 - 6:28 PM

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.
Mar 5 - 11:07 PM

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.
