76ers’ Kelly Oubre Jr. was hospitalized on Saturday night after being struck by a motor vehicle in Philadelphia, a team spokesperson confirmed to Fox News Digital.

Originally reported by ESPN, Oubre was a pedestrian when he was hit in Center City, the cite of the team’s proposed future arena, and is receiving treatment at a local hospital where he is in stable condition.

Oubre signed with the 76ers in September after spending his previous two seasons with the Charlotte Hornets.

Oubre was the 15th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks, but his draft rights were traded to the Washington Wizards.

The 27-year-old spent his first three-and-a-half seasons with the Wizards until he was traded to the Phoenix Suns in 2019. Oubre was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2020, but didn’t play for them, as he was promptly sent him to the Golden State Warriors, where he played one season.
