Shams: Warriors' Kelly Oubre has torn ligament, fractured palm

Golden State Warriors forward Kelly Oubre has been diagnosed with a ligament tear in his left wrist and a fracture on his palm, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Oubre had sat for over a week after aggravating his wrist injury, but he's played in five straight games despite this injury. Per Shams, Oubre will undergo further evaluations to see if he can continue to play through the pain. The Warriors currently have a three-game lead on the 11th-seeded San Antonio Spurs, so they're set to be in the play-in tournament to start the playoffs. Having Oubre would obviously be huge. Should Oubre be forced to miss time, Jordan Poole could see added minutes.

In 55 games this season, Oubre has averaged 15.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 28.8 FanDuel points.
