Following Adrian Wojnarowski' report of a late January, early December return for Victor Oladipo (right quad tendon rehab), Pacers' head coach Nate McMillan reiterated that there is no timeline for his return.
Chalk this up as a head coach trying to manage expectations for his star player, but the cat's out of the bag. Oladipo has been practicing with the Pacers' G League affiliate for over a month now and that had caused some to believe that a return was imminent. Unfortunately, we're back at square one with Oladipo, but beat reporter J. Michael still believes his return will come closer to the All-Star break. Whatever the case, managers who gambled on Oladipo during draft season have already made a bad investment and now it's just a matter of whether Oladipo's production after he returns is enough to recoup some of that value.
