The Philadelphia 76ers' Kelly Oubre Jr. was "in good spirits," according to head coach Nick Nurse, as he returned to the team's practice facility Tuesday, three days after he was struck by a motor vehicle.
The accident occurred Saturday night in downtown Philadelphia, which led to Oubre being hospitalized after suffering a broken rib and lacerations, among other injuries.
According to The Associated Press, police said Oubre was struck "in the upper chest area with the driver-side mirror" by the vehicle moving at "a high rate of speed" around 7:20 p.m. ET while crossing an intersection near his home, and he was taken to Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia.
Police said a silver vehicle fled the scene and the investigation remains ongoing.
"He's in good spirits," Nurse said of Oubre on Tuesday. "He rode the exercise bike for a little bit. So he's doing OK."
The 27-year-old Oubre, who is in his first season with the 76ers, will be reexamined later this week and it is possible the 76ers will then have an idea of a timetable for his return.
