NOVEMBER 11, 9:15pm: Sixers wing Kelly Oubre is receiving treatment at a Philadelphia-area hospital after being struck by a vehicle tonight while walking near his residence in the Center City area, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Oubre is listed in stable condition.

Oubre is expected to miss “significant time” because of his injuries, but they aren’t believed to be season-ending, sources tell Wojnarowski (Twitter link). President of basketball operations Daryl Morey and other team officials are at the hospital with Oubre, he adds.

The 27-year-old signed with Philadelphia in late September after exploring his options in free agency all summer. It’s a one-year-deal worth $2.89MM, so he’ll become a free agent again in July.

Oubre has been a huge bargain so far, averaging 16.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while shooting 50% from the field and 37.8% from three-point range.

He moved into the starting lineup after James Harden and P.J. Tucker were traded and has been a starter for the past five games.
