Oladipo ended with 22 points (7-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 109-106 loss to Phoenix.
Oladipo continues to play well for his new team, carrying them within six points of victory. The points and steals are a known commodity when it comes to fantasy production; however, the assists have been a pleasant surprise. The fact John Wall (knee) remains sidelined certainly helps in this instance but the lack of playmakers should present Oladipo with a great opportunity to put up career-high numbers in the assists department.
Oladipo finished with 32 points (13-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine assists, five rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes Monday in the Rockets' 125-120 loss to the Bulls.
While Houston lost the game, Oladipo turned in an impressive debut after he hadn't played in a week following his trade from Indiana. His 32 points and nine assists were both season highs, and his four made three-pointers were his second-best total of the season. The eventual return of John Wall (knee) will cut into Oladipo's usage, but the pair will likely function as the team's top ball handlers and scorers moving forward.
Oladipo (not injury related) will play Monday against the Bulls, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.
The 28-year-old didn't play Saturday for unspecified reasons after being acquired from Indiana, but he'll make his debut with Houston on Monday. Oladipo averaged 20.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.7 steals in 33.3 minutes with the Pacers before the trade, and he should continue to see heavy usage with his new team.
Oladipo (not injury related) is not expected to play Saturday against the Spurs, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
The four-team trade was recently completed, and Rodions Kurucs will be available for the Rockets, though it's not clear why Oladipo isn't going to suit up. There's little information regarding his situation, but the assumption is he will not be playing.
Oladipo was traded to the Rockets from the Pacers during Wednesday's mega-deal involving James Harden, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Oladipo is the key piece coming to the Rockets in the deal that also nets Houston Dante Exum, Rodions Kurucs and a slew of draft picks. Himself a former No. 2 overall pick, Oladipo should slot right in at shooting guard next to John Wall, playing a similar role to his time in Indiana. For fantasy purposes, Oladipo might be not be affected drastically; if anything, he could see a bump in usage.
Oladipo (injury management) won't play Tuesday against the Warriors, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
The 28-year-old hasn't played both ends of a back-to-back set since January 2019, and that trend continues Tuesday after he played 37 minutes in Monday's front end against Sacramento. Oladipo will be back in the starting five Thursday at Portland. Edmond Sumner will start in his stead, though Doug McDermott should also have an increased workload.
Oladipo (rest) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Oladipo has not played both games of a back-to-back since January 2019 so the team may opt to rest him after he played 37 minutes and scored 21 points during Monday's loss to the Kings. If the 28-year-old guard is held out, Justin Holiday and Doug McDermott would likely see increased roles.
Oladipo wouldn't commit to his status for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, though he appeared to suggest following Monday's loss to the Kings that he would likely rest for the second half of the Pacers' back-to-back set, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
MIchael characterized Oladipo as "doubtful" for Tuesday's contest after the swingman was cryptic in his response when asked if he would play against Golden State. The Pacers' official injury report will be released later Tuesday and ultimately provide more insight into which direction Oladipo is trending, but fantasy managers and DFS players should proceed with the expectation that he won't be suiting up. Oladipo previously sat out one half of the Pacers' lone other back-to-back set this season (Dec. 26 and 27), and he logged a season-high 37 minutes in Monday's loss. After a pair of down performances to close out last week, Oladipo bounced back nicely against the Kings, pouring in 21 points (8-20 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go with four assists, three rebounds and a season-high six steals.
It's unclear if Oladipo will play the second half of a back-to-back Tuesday against the Kings, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.
Oladipo has played in eight of his team's first nine games so far this season, but he may be in for a night of rest Tuesday. Expect the team to reveal his status following Monday evening's matchup.
Oladipo had 25 points (8-17 FG, 5-11 3PT, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, six assists and two steals in Monday's win over the Pelicans.
Coming off of a rough outing in a loss to the Knicks on Saturday, Oladipo bounced back with his fourth 20-plus-point effort of the season. On the whole, he's looked like a vastly improved version of the player we last saw in the Orlando bubble. In six appearances, Oladipo is averaging 20.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 3.3 made threes.
Oladipo scored 16 points (5-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and notched four rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Thursday's victory versus Cleveland.
Oladipo was much better from beyond the arc (4-of-8) than from two-point range (1-of-6) Thursday, posting multiple threes for his fourth straight contest to begin the season. Oladipo has also done well enough contributing in categories beyond scoring, posting per-game averages of 5.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists. Those numbers are on par with his production during his breakout 2017-18 campaign, and his shooting percentages (55.2 percent from the field, 54.2 percent from deep) would easily be career highs if he is able to come close to sustaining them.
Oladipo scored a team-high 24 points (10-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding six rebounds, six assists and a block in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 116-111 loss to the Celtics.
Just as in their first meeting Sunday -- a game Oladipo missed in order to give his knee a rest, as Indiana had played the night before -- the Pacers held a big lead in the second half that they squandered, but this time they couldn't bounce back. When he's been on the court, the 28-year-old has looked like he's back in the form he flashed during his 2017-18 breakout, averaging 22.7 points, 5.7 boards, 3.7 assists, 3.0 threes and 1.0 steals through his first three games this season. Look for Oladipo to deliver another strong performance Thursday against the Cavs.
Oladipo (knee) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.
The 28-year-old sat out Sunday's game against the Celtics to manage the right knee injury, but he should be back on the court after the one-game absence. Barring a setback, Oladipo is poised to be in the starting lineup Tuesday.
Oladipo (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Celtics.
The Pacers are attempting to manage a right knee issue that Oladipo is dealing with, so he'll be held out of Sunday's contest as a result. With Jeremy Lamb (knee) and Edmond Sumner (illness) also unavailable for Indiana, Aaron Holiday and Justin Holiday should see increased playing time against Boston on Sunday. Oladipo's next chance to play will be Tuesday against the Celtics.
Oladipo notched 22 points (8-12 FG, 5-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, an assists and two steals across 25 minutes in Saturday's win over the Bulls.
Oladipo was spectacular Saturday, playing the joint-fewest minutes among the Pacers' starters but ending as one of three players that surpassed the 20-point plateau. Oladipo has started the season with back-to-back 22-point performances, and he will try to extend his strong start to the year Sunday against the Celtics.
Oladiapo finished with 22 points (9-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 Ft), four boards, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes of a 121-107 win against New York on Wednesday.
Oladiapo finished the preseason on a strong note and carried that over into his play in the season opener. The eight-year vet had some of his best scoring seasons before his leg injury ended his 2018-19 campaign, and he began last season late, limiting the on-court time he's had to gel with new backcourt mate Malcolm Brogdon. If the opener is any indication, the two could form a dangerous one-two scoring punch again in the next game against Chicago on Saturday.
Oladipo scored 20 points (7-14 FG, 4-9 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 24 minutes in Friday's preseason loss to the 76ers.
Oladipo entered the game having connected on just four of his 20 shots from the field in two preseason contests. He turned that around in the finale, though he was still out-scored by Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis. Even so, Oladipo should be a primary scoring threat when the Pacers open the regular season Wednesday against the Knicks.
Oladipo scored eight points (2-11 FG, 2-6 3PT, 3-4 FT) to go along with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Monday's preseason loss to the Cavaliers.
Oladipo was more involved in the offense as compared to his first preseason contest, but his struggles from the field persisted. Across the two games, he has sunk just four of his 17 shots, including 2-for-10 from three-point range. While trade rumors persist, Oladipo should retain a prominent role so long as he remains in Indiana.
The Pacers organization has not decided if Oladipo will be cleared to play in back-to-backs, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Oladipo noted that it depends on how his body reacts but notes that he's now the healthiest he's been in two years. He hasn't played in back-to-backs since his tendon injury, but given the amount of time it's been, he could be cleared to play in them this season. It would be a big boost to Oladipo's potential fantasy value if he can play in back-to-backs, so that he would not have a capped upside.
Oladipo said Tuesday that he feels much better than he did in the Orlando bubble, J. Michael of the Indy Star reports. "It's night and day," Oladipo said. "I feel a lot better. A lot stronger. I definitely feel better from in the bubble until now.
The comments are encouraging, but Oladipo will need to prove it on the floor before fantasy players are willing to fully buy back in. Oladipo has simply not looked like himself since suffering a torn quad tendon in January of 2019 -- an injury that's led to him playing only 55 games over the last two seasons. Oladipo showed some signs of improvement in the Orlando bubble, but he finished the 10-game run shooting just 39.7 percent from the floor while committing 3.3 turnovers to 2.7 assists per game.
