Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said Sunday that he didn't have an update on Oladipo's (knee) status, suggesting the guard is out indefinitely, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Spoelstra's unwillingness to say whether Oladipo has resumed any on-court work since being shut down with right knee soreness makes it tough to predict when the 28-year-old may be ready to return to the court. Considering Oladipo's injury is to the same knee in which he ruptured a quad tendon in January 2019, the Heat are likely to take a cautious approach with his recovery. Oladipo can't be counted on to play in any of the Heat's four games this week, and he looks like a reasonable drop candidate for fantasy managers who want to maximize their games played in head-to-head playoff matchups.
Oladipo (knee) is out Sunday against the Nets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Oladipo will miss a fifth straight game due to right knee soreness. It's not clear when he'll be able to return, and it seems like he'll be day-to-day moving forward. His next chance to play is Monday against the Rockets.
Oladipo (knee) is not traveling with the team for Miami's upcoming four-game road trip, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Oladipo is set to undergo further evaluations on his knee, and he'll miss at least the next four games. His next possible opportunity to play will come when the Heat return home, April 18 versus the Nets. Since being dealt to Miami at the trade deadline, Oladipo has only managed to suit up for four games.
Oladipo will have his right knee evaluated Friday after he injured it during Thursday's win over the Lakers, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Coach Erik Spoelstra said that the team would not provide an update on Oladipo's injury on Thursday, and instead will wait until he undergoes further evaluation. The 28-year-old has only played four games with Miami after being dealt at the trade deadline. If Oladipo has to miss time, Goran Dragic, Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro would likely see increases to their workloads.
Oladipo will not return to Thursday's game due to a knee injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Oladipo limped to the locker room after appearing to injure his right knee in the fourth quarter. Through 25 minutes of action, Oladipo had scored 18 points to go along with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block. The severity of the injury is unclear at this time, but the team will provide more updates ahead of the team's next game Sunday against Portland.
Oladipo notched 16 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Grizzlies.
Oladipo was one of four Miami starters to score in double digits, and while he struggled from the field once again, he at least delivered a better showing than the one in his debut with the team -- he began his Heat tenure with back-to-back single-digit scoring performances. Oladipo is bound to improve his numbers at some point, however, especially if he remains as the team's starting point guard throughout the rest of the regular season.
Oladipo (illness) tallied six points (2-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-5 FT), five assists, three rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes off the bench in the Heat's 116-109 win over the Warriors on Thursday.
After he was acquired from the Rockets on March 25, Oladipo wasn't cleared to make his Miami debut until a week later after he had battled a head cold in recent days. He made enough progress to get the green light to play Thursday, but the 28-year-old's poor shooting from the field and free-throw line resulted in a rather underwhelming line. Oladipo's fantasy outlook will take a significant dip with the move to Miami, but he's capable of playing better than he showed in his debut. If he can capture a consistent 25-to-30-minute role as a high-usage sixth man, Oladipo should remain a usable option in 12-team leagues for fantasy managers in need of points, three-pointers, assists and steals.
Oladipo (illness) will start in his first game with the Heat on Thursday against Golden State, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
In his debut with Miami after battling an illness, Oladipo will unsurprisingly be in the starting lineup. In 20 games for Houston this season, the 28-year-old had averaged 21.2 points on 40.7 percent shooting, 4.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. Those numbers will figure to drop a bit due to the plethora of options that Miami has on the offensive end.
Oladipo (illness) remains out for Wednesday's game against the Pacers, but he's expected to make his Heat debut Thursday against the Warriors, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Oladipo is dealing with a head cold that's prevented him from playing since being dealt to Miami, but he'll be healthy enough to take the court Thursday. He should slot into the starting five, which means Kendrick Nunn or Trevor Ariza could head to the bench. The expectation should be that Oladipo settles into a role of 30-plus minutes per game and becomes one of the Heat's top offensive options.
Oladipo (illness) will not travel to Indiana for Wednesday's game, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
Oladipo will remain unable to debut for his new team as he deals with a head cold. The 28-year-old shooting guard's next chance to debut will come during a home game Thursday on the second end of a back-to-back against Golden State.
Oladipo won't play Monday against the Knicks due to a head cold, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
The 28-year-old was acquired from the Rockets ahead of Thursday's trade deadline and has yet to debut with his new team. Oladipo didn't travel to New York for Monday's contest, and it's unclear if he's expected to join the team for the next game of the road trip Tuesday at Indiana.
Oladipo (recently traded) won't play Friday against the Hornets
Traded to the Heat on Thursday's deadline, Oladipo will need some more time before he makes his team debut. He's practically a guarantee to join the starting five once he's with the team.
The Heat acquired Oladipo from the Rockets on Thursday in exchange for Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk and a draft swap, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Oladipo heads to his third team of the 2020-21 season after he was previously involved in the deal that sent James Harden to Brooklyn in January. The 28-year-old guard appeared in 20 games in Houston, averaging 21.2 points on 40.7 percent shooting, 4.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.5 triples and 1.2 steals per game. In Miami, he'll likely take over as the team's starting shooting guard, or transition into a sixth-man role for his new team. He sat out the Rockets' 122-97 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday due to a personal matter, but he returned to practice Thursday before he was traded, according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic. Oladipo won't be available for Miami's game Thursday versus Portland, but he'll likely join the team on its three-game road trip that begins Friday in Charlotte.
Oladipo will not play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets due to a personal matter, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
While it's entirely possible Oladipo is tending to a personal matter, the more likely scenario is that he's being held out on the eve of the NBA trade deadline, which arrives at 3 pm ET on Thursday. Oladipo has been a popular name in recent trade rumors, so with potential deals materializing, the Rockets are probably holding him out as a precaution.
Oladipo will be held out of Monday's game against Toronto for maintenance purposes, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
As has been the case for most of the season, Oladipo will be held out as the Rockets finish out the second half of a back-to-back. Oladipo played 41 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Thunder, finishing with 23 points, six assists, five boards, two steals and a block. John Wall is not on the Rockets' initial injury report.
Oladipo had 23 points (9-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.
Oladipo (23), John Wall (24) and Christian Wood (27) combined for 74 points, but it wasn't enough, as the Rockets suffered their 20th consecutive defeat. Oladipo continues to be a solid fantasy contributor when he's healthy, but he's been in and out of the lineup of late, making him difficult to trust in leagues with weekly lineups. Keep an eye on Oladipo's status for Monday's game versus Toronto as the Rockets play on the second night of a back-to-back.
Oladipo is in the starting five for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Oladipo was given a game off for rest last Wednesday, but he's now set to start a second consecutive game. He's seen a heavy workload of 33.2 minutes per game this season, converting those opportunities into 20.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.7 assists, on average.
Oladipo scored 19 points (7-18 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with four assists and three rebounds across 36 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pistons.
Oladipo returned from a one-game absence due to rest to play a team-high 36 minutes. He also led the team in field-goal attempts but struggled to convert from three-point range. While Oladipo doesn't post assists and rebounds at a particularly high rate, his heavy workload has allowed him to average 4.9 dimes and 4.7 boards per game since joining the Rockets.
Oladipo (rest) will play and start Friday against the Pistons, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Oladipo rested Wednesday during the loss to the Warriors, but he'll be back in action Friday. This month, he's averaged 27.2 points, 5.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 36.8 minutes.
Oladipo (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Warriors, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Oladipo will sit on the second half of the back-to-back set after playing 41 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Hawks and posting 34 points, five assists and three rebounds. With John Wall (knee) still sidelined, more playmaking responsibilities will likely go to Kevin Porter and Sterling Brown.
