Kelly Oubre Jr. will not be available for the Warriors in the NBA play-in tournament, no matter what seed Golden State earns. 

The Warriors announced Sunday that Oubre, who has missed the last nine games with a small avulsion fracture and ligament tear in his left wrist, will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days. 

Oubre played 55 games for the Warriors in the regular season. He averaged 15.4 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. Oubre also shot just 31.6 percent from 3-point range, his lowest since his second year in the league.

The Warriors face the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday looking to secure the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. The loser will become the No. 9 seed. Becoming the No. 8 seed would mean the Warriors only need to win one play-in game to make the playoffs, while the No. 9 seed would need to win two games.

In Oubre's nine-game absence, the Warriors have gone 7-2. They're riding a five-game win streak ahead of Sunday's matchup.
