2018 Fantasy Outlook
Oubre saw the most extensive playing time of his three-year career in 2017-18, resulting in career-high production across the board. The 22-year-old averaged 11.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steal across 27.5 minutes, all up from 6.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 0.7 steals across 20.3 minutes a year prior. Some of that can be attributed to John Wall missing 41 games and opening up more time in the rotation, but either way, it was a decent showing for the reserve wing. In addition to his increased production, Oubre took a step forward with his three-point shooting. He hit 1.6 deep balls at a 34.1 percent clip. While that may not be an overly efficient number, it was a night and day improvement compared to his 28.7 percent three-point shooting in 2016-17. Looking forward to the upcoming campaign, Oubre should reclaim his role as the top backup to Otto Porter at small forward. However, the Wizards did select wing Troy Brown in the draft and added Jeff Green during free agency, so Oubre will at least have some competition for reserve minutes. That likely keeps Oubre off the radar in anything but deeper leagues, though he should still have plenty of incentive to play well considering he's heading into the final year of his rookie deal and will be a restricted free agent next offseason.

To undergo surgery, out for season

March 21, 2019
Oubre will undergo a minor procedure on his left thumb and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. He'll require 4-to-6 weeks of recovery time.
ANALYSIS
This is a disappointing end to what was in many ways a breakthrough season for Oubre, who saw his production skyrocket after being traded to Phoenix in December. Over 40 games with the Suns, he averaged 16.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.7 triples, 1.4 steals and 1.0 block across 29.5 minutes per contest while shooting 45.3 percent from the field. His absence for the final few weeks should open up more run for Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
Oubre, a 6-foot-7 wing out of Kansas, will be heading into his third NBA season during 2017-18. Though he’s largely stuck behind the likes of Otto Porter and Bradley Beal, Oubre still managed to see a significant workload last year, posting 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds across 20.3 minutes per game. He also shot 42.1 percent from the field and 54-of-188 (28.7 percent) from beyond the arc. While his spot in the rotation may make him irrelevant in the majority of year-long leagues, he’s a candidate to consider in both dynasty and daily formats (when he’s in line to see extended run), as he’s shown plenty of big-game upside at 21-years-old. Most notably, on Dec. 10 against the Bucks, Oubre recorded 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three steals, one assist and no turnovers across 29 minutes.
Oubre has the look of an NBA player. The 6-7 swingman has excellent athleticism, and he could turn into a fine player given time. However, Oubre did not produce at Kansas like a first-round pick, but he had his moments. He had three 20-point games, including a season-high 25 points in the win over TCU in the Big 12 tournament. The native of New Orleans also had five games in which he did not score, and he fouled out in the loss to Wichita State in the NCAA tournament with just nine points. Over 36 games as a Jayhawk, Oubre averaged 9.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.4 blocks. He hit 44 percent of his field goals and 72 percent from the free-throw line. He converted 36 percent from the three-point line, so he has decent range on his jumper. Oubre may have showed signs of things to come with a 30-point game with six three-pointers in the Las Vegas Summer League, but he struggled leading up to that point. His rookie season will largely be a redshirt season for the 19-year-old because the team has Otto Porter, Jared Dudley, and Martell Webster on the wing.
