Oladipo will be available for Tuesday's game against Orlando and is expected to play between 28 and 32 minutes, J. Michael of the Indy Star reports. After sitting out Monday's win over Washington on the first half of a back-to-back, Oladipo will return to the lineup alongside Malcolm Brogdon. In his first seeding game, Oladipo posted 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 32 minutes in the Pacers' win over Philadelphia.
Oladipo (knee) will not play Monday against Washington, J. Michael of the Indy Star reports. The writing was on the wall after Oladipo was listed as doubtful Sunday night. The Pacers will play it safe with their star guard, who is still working his way back to full strength from a torn quad tendon. Monday's game comes on the first day of a back-to-back set, so the hope is that Oladipo is back in the lineup Tuesday versus Orlando.
Oladipo (knee) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Wizards. Per Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com, coach Nate McMillan said after Sunday's walk-through practice that Oladipo would sit out one half of the Pacers' upcoming back-to-back set, so his doubtful designation implies that Monday's contest will likely be his time to rest. Oladipo played near a full minutes load (32) in Saturday's win over the Sixers, finishing with 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal. If he does in fact end up sitting Monday, Aaron Holiday would be the top candidate to start at shooting guard, though there could be room for both him and Edmond Sumner on the top-unit backcourt if Malcolm Brodgon (neck) is also out.
Oladipo notched 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's 127-121 win over the 76ers. Oladipo led the Pacers in rebounding and ranked second in scoring, so it was a productive effort for the 28-year-old combo guard. He was a game-time decision for this contest due to a knee injury, but the fact that he logged 32 minutes should mean he is ready for a regular role as a starter moving forward.
Oladipo (knee) has decided to play in the restarted NBA season, beginning with Saturday's contest against the 76ers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He will initially be on a 28-to-30-minute limit. This is huge news for the Pacers, who are hanging in limbo with regards to Domantas Sabonis' (foot) status. Oladipo played in the Pacers' scrimmages earlier in July, so signs were pointing toward him participating in the restart considering he looked healthy. In Oladipo's final five appearances before the hiatus, he averaged 18.6 points on 13.6 shots, 4.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 27.4 minutes.
