The Oklahoma City Thunder have released guard Alex Abrines, the team announced Saturday. The Spanish guard will become a free agent once he clears waivers. He was around the team while dealing with the undisclosed personal matter, with the Thunder organization offering as much support as possible. "Honestly, we go day by day with him and continue to be supportive with him".

Abrines played in 31 games for the Thunder this season, starting twice, and averaged 5.3 points and 1.5 rebounds in 19 minutes per game.

Abrines recently returned to play against the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat but he has since missed the past three games for the team.


For his career, Abrines has appeared in 174 games, averaging 5.3 points and shooting 36.8 percent from 3.

In the end, it's a mysterious ending for a player that figured to play an important role on the Thunder this season.

With the move, the Thunder's roster is down to 12 guaranteed contracts and two two-way contracts (Donte Grantham, Deonte Burton).
