Although Victor Oladipo was doubtful of playing with the Indiana Pacers in Orlando, it has been recently reported, by Shams Charania, that Oladipo may attempt to play in the NBA restart. The 6’4 shooting guard has reportedly been practicing with his team, and it seems he’s healthy enough to play. However, Oladipo has missed nearly the entire season due to a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee. He’s only played 13 games this season, and has put up numbers of 13.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists. Oladipo has clearly not found a consist rhythm since returning from injury…

The Pacers’ organization and fan base should be grateful at this news, as Malcolm Brogdon won’t be allowed to play due to him contracting Covid-19. Should Brogdon test negative, he’ll be able to return. But will he return in time or will the Pacers have to suffer from his absence?

There’s no telling when Brogdon will return. This should fuel up Oladipo to play, as his team will need him desperately. The question is, will the Pacers get the all-star Oladipo or 13 points per game Oladipo? It has been noted that the practices Oladipo attended were productive, but only time will tell us.
