Thunder coach Billy Donovan said that Victor Oladipo will rejoin the Thunder for tonight’s game and will be immediately reinserted into the starting five.
The move pushes Alex Abrines (eye injury, but will play) back to the bench. Oladipo has been a mild disappointment for fantasy owners this season but could right a lot of wrongs with a strong finish. The Thunder are jockeying with Memphis in the playoff race and could use the extra help, so don’t expect Dipo to be taking it easy until the standings solidify- there’s been no announcement of a hard minutes limit tonight, only “monitoring.” On a night with just three games, the Indiana product looks mighty enticing for anyone who can slot him into a lineup.
