Oladipo (knee) remains without a firm timetable for a return, though the Pacers are optimistic that he'll be ready for game action in either December or January, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports. Oladipo has been making solid progress of late, as he was recently spotted running on a football field after shedding both his crutches and brace. As of now, it looks like the star shooting guard is likely to miss at least the first few months of the season prior to taking the court, though more information on his recovery process should emerge as his return approaches.
Oladipo (knee) has progressed to running. The Pacers' official Twitter account posted a video of Oladipo running on a football field. It marks tangible progress for Oladipo, who shed his brace and crutches in late March. A timetable for his return has yet to be established, but that figures to get cleared up as Oladipo continues to reach milestones in his recovery.
Oladipo (knee) has progressed to walking without the assistance of a brace or crutches, per his Instagram page. This is significant progress eight weeks out from Oladipo's surgery. His next step will be jogging and eventually running. More information should continue to emerge when he reaches certain milestones in his recovery.
Oladipo (knee), wearing a heavy knee brace, has taken his first steps since undergoing surgery in late January, Yahoo Sports reports. A video has surfaced of Oladipo walking around the three-point line in a gym, taking set shots. He's still a long way away from a full recovery, but this is an encouraging and tangible start to his rehab process. The Pacers were 25-11 in games Oladipo played in this season, and the 2017-18 Most Improved Player will look to come back strong next season.
Oladipo (knee) underwent successful surgery Monday to repair the ruptured quad tendon in his right knee. The Pacers kept things brief in their official release, stating only that Oladipo is "expected to make a full recovery" and adding that "no timetable has been established." Given the severity of the injury, that's not overly surprising, but the prevailing belief is that Oladipo will face a lengthy recovery process that could carry into the start of the 2019-20 campaign. For the rest of this season, expect the combination of Tyreke Evans, Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday to pick up minutes in Oladipo's place.
