His progress will be stalled.

An initial exam reveals Phoenix Suns swigman Kelly Oubre Jr. has suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) February 27, 2020
This could end Oubre’s season.
At 4.5 games and five teams out of postseason position, the Suns (24-35) have hung in the playoff race. But this could sink their already-slim chances.
Oubre will earn $14,375,000 in the final year of his contract next season. There will be plenty of attention on his health and athleticism entering 2021 free agency.
