The Pacers really need Oladipo to play after losing Darren Collison (knee surgery) for 2-3 weeks. The All-Star’s return will hurt Lance Stephenson‘s value the most and take ball handling opportunities away from Cory Joseph. The 25-year-old has skyrocketed from top-86 value last season to top-10 this year thanks to improvements in every category other than turnovers. His usage is nearly eight points higher than last season. Enjoy the ride.
Injury update: Victor Oladipo will play tonight in New Orleans.

Update: Victor Oladipo and Cory Joseph will start against the Pelicans. Lance Stephenson to the bench. Oladipo could have his minutes monitored.
Cory Joseph will start at guard with Victor Oladipo tonight in New Orleans. First time that backcourt combo has started.
