While Oubre did play through the injury, he has actually not played given that April 27, when he scored 10 points and grabbed 3 rebounds in Golden States 133-103 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
The Warriors acquired the swingman from the Oklahoma City Thunder after Klay Thompson tore his Achilles tendon on the night of the 2020 NBA Draft. The Thunder had actually simply obtained Oubre from the Phoenix Suns in the hit Chris Paul trade.
Through 55 video games this season, Oubre has balanced 15.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 helps a night while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 31.6 percent from the 3-point line.
