More on Kelly Oubre Injury

Jason Smith and Kelly Oubre missed Monday's practice session with the Wizards because of sore knees, but their availability for Game 2 vs. the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday doesn't appear to be in question.
Just as the Wizards seemed to hit their stride and get back Markieff Morris from a foot injury that kept him out a game, they won't have Kelly Oubre for Sunday's contest with the L.A. Clippers because he's in concussion protocol. Oubre, a 6-7 forward who has been a valuable defender coming off the bench or when coach Scott Brooks uses small-ball lineups, is listed out by the team. The Wizards have won four of five games and might not have Jason Smith (right hamstring) after he removed himself from Friday's win over the Detroit Pistons.
