Hornets Provide Injury Update on Kelly Oubre Jr.

Charlotte gets some bench help back.

Kelly Oubre Jr. has missed the last 24 games recovering from torn ligament in his left hand that required surgery. During that stretch, the Hornets went 7-17, including a seven-game losing streak before winning the final two games prior to the All-Star break.

Oubre is expected to return to action and has been upgraded to available for tonight's road game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In 35 games this season, Oubre is averaging 20.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game while shooting 42% from the field and 31% from three-point range.
