Philadelphia 76ers guard Kelly Oubre Jr. was taken to the hospital on Saturday night after being struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report the news.

“Philadelphia 76ers guard Kelly Oubre Jr. was a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle in Center City, Philadelphia tonight and is receiving treatment at a local hospital, a Sixers spokesman tells ESPN,” Wojnarowski wrote.

“Oubre Jr., is currently in stable condition.”

While Oubre is in stable condition, he is expected to “miss significant time due to his injuries, but those aren’t considered to be season-ending.”

Oubre is in his first year with the 76ers after spending time with the Washington Wizards, Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, and Charlotte Hornets.

This season, Oubre is averaging 16.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.

Up next for the 76ers is a home game against the Indiana Pacers. Tip-off between the Pacers and 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center is set for 6:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 12.
