86 rumors in this storyline

Kelly Oubre to return on Wednesday

When the Charlotte Hornets take the TD Garden floor at 7:30 p.m., exactly two weeks to the day of their last matchup in Boston against the Celtics, the swingman will be back in the lineup for the first time in a week after sitting out due to a sprained left ankle. “Yeah,” Oubre told The Observer on Tuesday. “I’m going to play. Feeling pretty good. A little bit of soreness, but nothing I can’t play through.”

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.

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.

Along with having their friends and family at the wedding — including some NBA stars like DeAndre Jordan and Georges Niang — the couple had a few top priorities. “We’re foodies,” Harris says. “We love to have great spirits as well. Like, go out, have a nice cocktail, a glass of wine — food is so important to us. So we wanted our guests to be able to have a great meal when they have dinner.”
“It is good to be with them under this beautiful sun and motivate them because the reality is that I too was once like one of these children…. I believe that they are going to do better than what we are doing to live. They have to do it with our support,” said Biyombo. Biyombo officially handed over a brand-new ground to his fellow countrymen, during the first basketball camp he held in Congo since the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020.
