After missing Sunday’s game with foot soreness, Kelly Oubre was able to return to Monday’s practice and said that he expects to play tomorrow against the Heat.
Oubre added that he’s been playing through the pain for over a week, which might help explain his terrible shooting recently. While he’s looking to play, the Wiz could opt to hold him out to make sure he’s closer to 100 percent. KO is one of their most effective (and perhaps only effective) bench pieces and logs huge minutes as the team’s sixth man, so his health for the long run is far more important than tomorrow’s game. His combination of threes, rebounds and steals lends him back-end value in 12-team leagues so keep an eye on his status going forward.
