Kelly Oubre hit 4-of-12 shots for eight points, three rebounds, one assist and three steals over 28 minutes on Wednesday against the Heat.
Oubre has been seeing bigger minutes down the stretch as Wizards players have been rested, but the story for him this year has been getting on the radar for his defense. He didn’t produce for fantasy owners when he got bigger minutes, but neither did Otto Porter early in his career, and Oubre could get thrust into a Porter-like role from last year, especially if Porter leaves as many expect as a restricted free agent. Dynasty owners should be considering Oubre before it gets too obvious that he’s going to be an asset.
