Phoenix Suns forward Kelly Oubre Jr. might miss the rest of the season because of a torn meniscus in his right knee, ESPN has confirmed.

The Suns have looked for possible buyout candidates or free-agent additions to replace Oubre, with the expectation that the fifth-year forward will miss the rest of the season, sources told ESPN.

Oubre will seek a second opinion on the injury, according to Yahoo Sports, which first reported the injury.

Oubre, 24, is averaging career highs of 18.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in 56 games this season.

The Suns (24-35) are 4½ games behind the eighth-place Memphis Grizzlies (28-30) in the Western Conference standings.
