Is he a drop? Got guys like Justin Holiday, Thad Young etc. floating around the wire

 

 

it looks like they won’t commit to giving him consistent minutes .. which is a mistake, but makes him only good as a streamer for now

Mikal Bridges did nothing with 22min...

I don’t know If he can keep his level but Oubre can outplay Mikal for the starting slot...

It will be interesting to see what happens the next game..(back to back game)

 

This kid need only 30min for produce.

they need to start him and see what they have .. he’s clearly got potential and is currently their best forward after tj warren at only 23 years old 

 

If he can keep his level the next couple of games...He can outplay Mikal for the starting job.

Booker coming back tomorrow pretty much kills this guys value now, right?  Was looking forward to streaming him in points leagues this week.

Not necessarily, he plays with the second unit. It will definitely take usage away from everyone, but the nice thing about oubre is his able to chip in defensive stats as well. May even open the floor up with defences focusing on booker now. That's how I see it. As long as oubre continues to get  30 mins.

That's the problem though.  With Booker back, it will be really difficult for him to get 30 minutes.  Booker and Warren will continue to get big minutes, leaving multiple players to fight for the backup minutes to them and the PG (since technically Booker probably slides there when Melton and such are on the bench).  There's still Josh Jackson to get at least 20 minutes per game as well.

 

I'm not questioning Oubre's talent.  I liked him when I had him last season when he managed to get minutes at times with the Wizards, but I think he loses being a must start at the very least with Booker returning.
