TMZ Sports has obtained footage of Kelly Oubre Jr. just minutes after he was struck by a vehicle over the weekend, showing the Philadelphia 76ers forward struggling to walk as he entered his apartment. As we previously reported, the 6’7″ hooper was involved in a hit-and-run outside his Philly residence on Saturday, suffering a broken rib and injuries to his hip and leg after a silver car swiped him with a side-view mirror. Sources tell us Oubre returned home shortly after being hit and when his wife saw him in serious pain, she called 911. In the Ring camera footage, Oubre is heard telling Shylynn he was hit by a car as he rolled a bicycle into his residence.
We’re told the 27-year-old was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where medical professionals began treatment. Our sources say a couple hours after the incident, officials interviewed Oubre to get some information on what went down. At the time, Oubre claimed the incident happened near 15th and Spruce Street, but on Wednesday, police said there was no surveillance video to support his claim. Sources tell us two factors play into this—one being Oubre was medicated and not in the right state of mind when he spoke with cops, the other being he’s fresh to the area, as he just moved to Philly in September and doesn’t know his way around town just yet.
All things considered, our sources say it was challenging for Oubre to pinpoint the exact location of the accident, so he tried his best. There’s no official timetable on Oubre’s recovery, although some reports claim he could be back in action as early as the end of the month. Oubre’s teammates have rallied behind him in his absence—most notably, Tyrese Maxey dedicated his 50-point performance to the former Kansas standout following the accident.
The video footage obtained by TMZ Sports shows Oubre visibly struggling as he enters his apartment, supporting the severity of his injuries. The images reveal Oubre in noticeable pain, corroborating reports of the seriousness of his condition. Oubre’s wife’s quick response in calling 911 highlights the urgency of the situation and the immediate need for medical attention.
Following the incident, Oubre was taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance, where he received treatment for his broken rib and other injuries. The fact that Oubre was under the influence of medication and unfamiliar with the area at the time of the interview with officials further complicates the investigation into the exact location of the hit-and-run. Additionally, the lack of surveillance video to support his claims has added to the challenge of determining what exactly happened.
Despite the challenges, Oubre remains focused on his recovery, with reports suggesting a possible return to action by the end of the month. In the meantime, Oubre’s teammates, including Tyrese Maxey, have shown their support for him, rallying behind him and dedicating their performances to him.
It’s clear that the aftermath of the hit-and-run has been a challenging and trying time for Oubre, as he grapples with both his physical and emotional recovery. The support of his teammates and the ongoing investigation into the incident will undoubtedly play crucial roles in his journey back to full health and his return to the court.
