Kellan Olson: Suns injury updates: - Oubre has right wrist tendinitis. Sidelined w/ daily treatment. No timetable and re-evaluated in 7-10 days. - Bridges has a right patella bone bruise. Rehabbing right knee discomfort. No timetable. Re-evaluated in 7-10 days.
Gina Mizell: No update from Williams on Kelly Oubre (hand) or Mikal Bridges (knee), who did not participate during open portion of practice. "They seem to be progressing, which we all are." This is a more optimistic viewpoint than that we're all slowly deteriorating aka dying, ha! #Suns
Gina Mizell: Kelly Oubre has a brace/splint on his right hand and is not participating in the scrimmage work during the open media period. He’s up encouraging/barking at teammates. Mikal Bridges is also still absent. #Suns
Gina Mizell: Igor Kokoskov on Kelly Oubre’s thumb injury: “We feel bad about it. Especially lately, the way he was playing, (he was) a big part of our team, a big part of our offense...he can’t help us on the court, but even that little help on the sideline can be crucial.” #Suns
Adrian Wojnarowski: Phoenix F Kelly Oubre, Jr., will undergo minor procedure on his left thumb and miss rest of season, sources tell ESPN. Oubre's recovery will be 4-to-6 weeks.

Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. received platelet-rich plasma injections in his right knee Friday in Los Angeles, according to several people close to the situation. Oubre, a second-year player who played through pain during the Wizards’ playoff run, is not expected to undergo further injections and will sit out the next few weeks to rest his knee. Although Oubre could resume basketball activities later this month but will not play with the Wizards’ Summer League team in July.

Candace Buckner: Story posting soon: #Wizards F Kelly Oubre Jr. had PRP injection in rt knee today in LA. Oubre dealt w/ injury even b4 the playoffs began.
Washington Wizards small forward Kelly Oubre Jr. plans to undergo PRP injections to his right knee, league sources tell ESPN. Oubre, 21, is expected to be able to return to basketball activities in approximately two weeks, sources say.
The second-year forward has been bothered by the knee injury since the opening-round series against the Atlanta Hawks. He had an MRI last week and, according to league sources, no structural damage was revealed.
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.

The Heat, I’m told, are likewise strong favorites to re-sign restricted free agent sharpshooter Duncan Robinson with or without the addition of DeRozan and are believed to be attempting to make all of these moves without surrendering Tyler Herro via trade. Longtime Heat executive Andy Elisburg, regarded as one of the league’s foremost salary-cap savants, will only add to his legend if Miami can get all that done.
The Kings are said to be preparing an offer in the $50 million range to bring back in-demand center Richaun Holmes – with Holmes said to be seeking bigger numbers.
Rival teams interested in Bobby Portis are highly pessimistic that they can pry Portis away from Milwaukee, despite the Bucks’ financial constraints in trying to keep him, and Dallas is even more of a lock to re-sign Doncic’s close friend Boban Marjanovic. Beyond the extension for Doncic, retaining Marjanovic is the one certainty about the Mavericks’ offseason that has already seen them move away from a planned pursuit of Lowry.
A source familiar with the situation told PhillyVoice the reporting was not accurate and suggested the intel likely dates back to last season. That was when, according to the source, Harris’ name was brought up as part of a larger deal with the Houston Rockets, briefly discussed during the Sixers’ attempt to trade for James Harden. But a Harden deal never got there, and many iterations like this one were never particularly close.
Marc J. Spears: The Toronto Raptors say Patrick Mutombo will return as head coach of Raptors 905. Mutombo will also serve as head coach for the Raptors at NBA Summer League 2021 in Las Vegas. The full coaching staff for Raptors 905 will be released at a later date.
Marc J. Spears: Kiki VanDeWeghe has decided to transition from his position as the NBA’s Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations to a new role as a special advisor to Byron Spruell, the NBA’s President, League Operations. VanDeWeghe has held the EVP role since August 2015.
