Phoenix Suns swingman Kelly Oubre Jr. may not be done for the season after all.

The 6-foot-7 forward was reportedly planning to sit out the remainder of 2019-20 to rehab his right meniscus, but he's feeling good physically during individual workouts in Orlando.

"Health status is up to the staff," Oubre said on Tuesday, according to Kellan Olson of 98.7 FM Arizona Sports. "I feel fine.

"My main focus here is to support my teammates and continue to get better and be a leader. Everything else is out of my hands."

Oubre underwent arthroscopic surgery in March. Prior to being sidelined, he was averaging career per-game highs in points (18.7) and rebounds (6.4), while also posting his best 3-point percentage (35.2%).

Although Oubre hasn't yet returned to playing in five-on-five scrimmages, head coach Monty Williams is encouraged with his progress.

"There's so many benchmarks for a guy like that coming off of a surgery," Williams said. "He's totally healed, his body looks great but there's still some things he would have to be comfortable doing. We would have to be comfortable based on our medical staff giving him the OK. But he looks great."
