Warriors guard Kelly Oubre Jr., who has been ruled out for Monday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets at Chase Center with a left wrist sprain, is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Steve Kerr.
“I talked to him today,” Kerr said of Oubre, who missed Saturday’s win over the Houston Rockets. “[He] said he’s feeling better and so I don’t think that this will be a long absence. But we’ll just continue to say day-to-day.”
Oubre injured his left wrist when he landed hard after a dunk attempt during last week’s win over the Washington Wizards. It is the same wrist that sidelined Oubre, 25, for two games last month.
Against Houston, Kent Bazemore replaced Oubre in the starting lineup and will likely do so again Monday night. In 50 games (all starts), Oubre is averaging 15.3 points on 43.9% shooting, including 31.7% from 3-point range, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 30.8 minutes per game.
Given Kerr’s comments, it appears Oubre could return as soon as Wednesday’s game at the Oklahoma City Thunder.
