Philadelphia 76ers’ player, Kelly Oubre, has been injured after a hit-and-run accident in downtown Philly on Saturday. Oubre, a shooting guard/small forward, was struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross the intersection of Broad Street and Locust Street. Witnesses reported that a silver vehicle hit Oubre and then fled the scene. As a result of the accident, Oubre sustained multiple fractured ribs, injuries to his hip, and right leg. He is currently out indefinitely as he recovers from his injuries.
The 76ers signed Oubre to a one-year contract in September, where he has proven to be a valuable asset to the team. So far this season, Oubre has averaged 16.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.4 steals per game, shooting a career-high 50% from the field and 37.8% from 3-point range. He has appeared in eight games, with the 76ers winning seven out of those eight with him on the team. Oubre’s absence will be deeply felt by the 76ers as they strive to maintain their successful start to the season.
In a recent game, the 76ers’ point guard Tyrese Maxey dedicated his career-high 50-point performance to Oubre. Maxey expressed his well-wishes for Oubre, reflecting the team’s support and concern for their injured teammate.
The 76ers currently hold the best record in the NBA at 8-1, despite Oubre’s absence. The team has been on an impressive winning streak, with standout performances from players like Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey. The recent success has generated a positive outlook for the 76ers, who are striving for continued success in the season.
The team’s performance has attracted attention from the betting world, with the 76ers emerging as a top contender to win the Eastern Conference this season. With a new head coach and a talented roster, the 76ers are determined to maintain their momentum and compete for a championship title.
