There is a significant variance to Oubre’s output, too, just as there is with most wing players who handle the ball little and need offensive creation around them. Nevertheless, cherry-picking Oubre’s recent performances leads to a 26.7 fantasy point average over the last six games.

This cherry-picked sample size is not a coincidence. Those are the six games John Wall has missed, and while Oubre is not a primary or secondary offensive creator, he is getting better at being a tertiary one, and is getting more scoring opportunities with this temporary promotion. He thus has fantasy value.

The streaky Oubre is on a hot streak. With two consecutive 30+ fantasy point performances and a 27.0 average over the last five, he has shouldered some of the huge offensive burden someone needs to shoulder in the absence of John Wall, picking up the high value defensive statistics on the way. Oubre’s offensive skill level with and without the ball has clearly developed since last year, too, making this growth sustainable.

Even more inconsistent than Green is Oubre. Yet he was brilliant last time out, with 21 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal, and has scored less than 9 points only once all season. The price does not reflect his improvements, hence he is good value.

There is a marked inconsistency about Oubre. His offensive game is scrappy and unrefined, and while some nights he bounces around finishing plays, some days he will throw up a goose egg. Increasingly, however, he is making small developments in his offensive game, as evidenced by the 12.0 points per game he is averaging this year, alongside 6.0 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks. With Markieff Morris still out, Oubre, who has averaged 36 minutes per game thus far this season, should get another big minute haul tonight.

A spotty season from Oubre in which he again did little offensively, then suddenly became a key scorer in the playoffs. Oubre’s length and mobility should make him a good defender - ‘should’ being a key word, as he has yet to perform like one yet due to lapses in his play, particularly off the ball - yet his offensive skill level is low. He shoots poorly from outside (32.7% on jump shots, including two-pointers), cannot take a contested dribble, has no off hand, and misses layups when contested. Needs a lot of skill development and to start becoming reliable so as to not become the next Wesley Johnson.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. Has a lot to prove, but has shown enough defensively to keep around.
