Report: Kelly Oubre Jr. is targeting a return to play next week

As he recovers from injuries reportedly sustained while hit by a car earlier this month, Kelly Oubre Jr. may be returning to the court for the Sixers next week.

Sixers wing Kelly Oubre Jr. is targeting a return to action next week after fracturing his rib on Nov. 11, according to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Oubre could return on Wednesday at the Washington Wizards or on Friday at home against the Atlanta Hawks, Charania reports.

Oubre, 27, starred in the Sixers’ first eight games of the season, averaging 16.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while shooting 37.8 percent from three-point range and providing the team with vital doses of defense and energy.

Oubre’s return will provide some much-needed stability to the Sixers’ wing rotation, which has been suspect in his absence.
