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.
Oladipo, who was diagnosed Thursday with a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee, will undergo surgery at yet-to-be-determined date and could require 6-to-9 months of recovery time, Jim Ayello of The Indianapolis Star reports.
The Pacers haven't officially provide a timeline for Oladipo's recovery and likely won't until he has the procedure, but Dr. Rodney Benner, a knee specialist and orthopedic surgeon in Indianapolis, relayed to Ayello that the length of recovery from ruptured quad tendons is comparable to that of ACL tear. As such, the injury isn't considered a career-threatening one, though Oladipo may struggle initially to regain the form that made him an All-Star in 2017-18, even if he meets the low end of his projected timetable. In their first game Saturday since Oladipo suffered the season-ending injury, the Pacers moved Tyreke Evans in the starting five in a 106-103 loss to the Grizzlies. Evans, Darren Collison, Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday should all see slightly enhanced roles as the Pacers look to fill the void in the backcourt created by Oladipo's absence.
Oladipo was diagnosed Thursday with a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee. The Pacers have confirmed he'll miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season.
Unfortunately, given the initial reports after Oladipo sustained the injury Wednesday night against Toronto, this latest update doesn't come as much of a surprise. The Pacers did not provide specifics in terms of when Oladipo will undergo surgery or how long he's expected to remain out, but he'll miss the final three months of this season, and it's fair to assume his recovery will extend into the summer -- perhaps putting his status for the start of the 2019-20 campaign in jeopardy. Coming off of a breakout 2017-18 season in which he earned his first All-Star bid, Oladipo took a slight step back through 36 games, but he was still averaging 18.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.7 steals per game and was likely on track to return to the All-Star Game. With the 26-year-old sidelined, the Pacers will turn to Cory Joseph and Tyreke Evans for increased minutes, while rookie Aaron Holiday will likely return to the regular rotation, as he did when Oladipo missed a stretch of games in November and December.
Oladipo (knee) suffered a serious knee injury Wednesday against the Raptors and will undergo an MRI on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This is devastating news for Oladipo, who collided with Raptors' forward Pascal Siakam Wednesday and needed to be stretchered off the court. By calling it a serious injury, it seems likely that Oladipo is headed for an extended absence which puts the remainder of this season, and possibly even some of next season, in jeopardy. He's set to undergo an MRI, which will confirm the injury and provide a better idea of what the timetable to be. In Oladipo's absence, Tyreke Evans, Aaron Holiday and Cory Joseph could each see increased roles.
Oladipo was stretchered off the floor during Wednesday's game against the Raptors after suffering a knee injury, Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Oladipo suffered the injury when going up to deflect a pass Wednesday and collided with Raptors' forward Pascal Siakam. When down, the trainors immediately covered Oladipo's knee with a towel and brought out the stretcher, signifying that it is potentially a very serious injury. The Pacers should provide an update on Oladipo's status momentarily, but it's safe to say that he will not return to Wednesday's contest and further testing should provide clarity on a timetable for return.
Oladipo scored a team-high 21 points (8-20 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding seven assists, three steals and two rebounds in 32 minutes during Sunday's 120-95 win over the Hornets.
It's the first time in eight games Oladipo's popped for 20 or more points. The 26-year-old has seen his scoring slide a little to begin 2019 but he's still providing solid fantasy value, averaging 17.9 points, 4.8 assists, 4.0 boards, 2.0 three-pointers and 1.6 steals on the month so far.
Oladipo scored 15 points (6-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt), seven assists and two rebounds across 34 minutes in Thursday's 120-96 loss to the 76ers.
Oladipo shot poorly Thursday night, barely hitting 25 percent of his shots. Despite the poor efficiency, Oladipo put together a good line from a solid effort from three and creating opportunities for his teammates. The scoring will come and go, but Oladipo continues to be a strong shooting guard.
Oladipo tallied 17 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-6 FT), three rebounds and a steal across 26 minutes Wednesday against Boston.
Oladipo has now put up back-to-back 17-point contests, and although his scoring output has been serviceable, he hasn't offered up much other production. He's posted just five rebounds, five assists and two steals combined over that brief two-game span. The 26-year-old guard is averaging 20.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.7 steals so far this season, and he'll draw a more favorable matchup Friday in New York.
Oladipo scored 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and totaled two rebounds along with five assists and a steal over 34 minutes Tuesday against Cleveland.
Oladipo posted a big night Friday, putting up 36 points against the Bulls, but he's responded with two straight average performances by his standards (16 and 17 points, respectively). The 26-year-old guard has posted 12 double-digit scoring totals in 13 games since returning from a significant knee injury and should continue to provide fantasy owners with solid production moving forward.
Oladipo went off for 36 points (14-28 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, three steals, and one block in 37 minutes during Friday's 119-116 overtime win against the Bulls.
Oladipo was superb, matching his season high in scoring while swiping at least three steals for the third time in the last five tilts. He has been providing extremely well-rounded stat lines of late, complete with lots of points, boards, dimes, steals, and threes. Moreover, Oladipo drained the game-winning trey.
Oladipo had 22 points (9-19 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, seven assists and four steals over 34 minutes Monday against the Hawks.
Oladipo packed the stat sheet after being held to just seven points over 26 minutes Friday against Detroit. He's now played in 10 consecutive games after returning from injury, averaging 16.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.9 steals over that span. Oladip is slated to take the court next against the Bulls on Friday.
Oladipo finished with seven points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 26 minutes Friday against the Pistons.
Oladipo was held under 12 points for the first time since returning from injury Dec. 12 (eight games), but the Pacers would cruise to a 125-88 victory at home. The 26-year-old's latest performance appears to be just a blip on the radar, given his 20.0 ppg and 5.3 apg average over 24 games this season. It's also worth noting that Oladipo has been nursing a sore shoulder of late, which could perhaps explain his recent lack of production.
Oladipo (shoulder) will play during Friday's contest against the Pistons, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Oladipo was previously listed as probable, so his availability is unsurprising. Over the past six games, he's averaging 18.7 points, 6.3 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals across 35.5 minutes.
Oladipo (shoulder) is probable for Friday's game against the Pistons.
Oladipo was absent from Thursday's practice because of a shoulder injury, although he's listed as probable on the team's most recent injury report. He figures to assume his usual role within the starting five, although expect official confirmation on his status to come closer to tipoff.
Oladipo did not practice Thursday after tweaking his shoulder during Wednesday's game against the Hawks, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Though Oladipo skipped practice, he still got shots up on his own, so it appears the issue isn't serious. Encouragingly, coach Nate McMillan thinks Oladipo will be available. Still, if Oladipo ends up sidelined, Aaron Holiday and Tyreke Evans would presumably get extra minutes.
Oladipo accounted for 26 points (8-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, and two steals across 36 minutes Friday as Indiana topped Brooklyn.
Oladipo is regaining his All-NBA form, leading the way for the Pacers in scoring once again. The sixth-year guard was a force in his sixth game back since returning from a knee injury. The Pacers are deep, and while they have performed well with him sidelined he is the undeniable top dog. Few guards equal his production and he is one of the most valuable backcourt options in all formats.
