Oubre To Be Re-Evaluated In Four Weeks Following Meniscus Surgery

Suns forward Kelly Oubre underwent surgery on his torn meniscus in his right knee earlier today, as expected. In addition to confirming that report, the club issued an updated timeline for Oubre’s recovery, announcing he’ll be re-evaluated in four weeks, as ESPN relays.

Oubre, who was acquired mid-season last year in a trade with the Wizards, was having a career year with the Suns this season. He’s averaging 18.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

The timing of Oubre’s re-evaluation would leave about two weeks left in the season, so it’s possible we won’t see him return to the court this spring, especially if the Suns have fallen entirely out of the race for the eighth seed by that point.

    There’s no way the Suns are going to catch the Grizzlies, Blazers, Kings, Spurs, and Pelicans to make it a 6-team race for the 8th seed. They should tank.

    They probably could not get a high pick by tanking (right now #10) or get to the playoffs .

    They don’t have pressing re-signing needs, but they might go after Bertans or Gallinari with a near-max. That effort would benefit from a late-season rally. An informational call to their agents may be in order if they want to intend a plan.

    Bertans would fit style-wise but they could use a defender at the 4… Saric has been below-average.
