Victor Oladipo (ruptured quad tendon) underwent successful surgery on Monday but has no timetable for return.
It's good that Oladipo's surgery went well and everyone knew he wouldn't be playing for the rest of the season. He'll basically be out indefinitely and might not be back until mid-season next year if that. Hopefully Oladipo can have a speedy recovery and get back on the court in no time.

The Pacers announced that Victor Oladipo will undergo season-ending surgery after rupturing the quad tendon in his right knee.
It's an absolutely awful beak for Oladipo and the Pacers, who were asserting themselves as one of the top teams in the conference. Oladipo can be dropped in re-draft formats, while Darren Collison, Tyreke Evans, Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday will all play more going forward. Collison is the best bet for fantasy value and could settle inside the top-60, while Evans and Joseph could become fringe 12-team assets. Expect more shots for everyone on the team as they absorb Oladipo's massive scoring burden. You can give all of the already-relevant Pacers a solid boost. Ruptured quad tendons aren't exactly common in basketball, and the last player to sustain the injury was Tony Parker. He was at the end of his career, however, and it remains to be seen how this impacts Oladipo's athleticism and burst when he does return.

As per Adrian Wojnarowski, it is feared that Victor Oladipo has suffered a season-ending knee injury that will require surgery.
This is not good at all. Oladipo has been slowly rising up the rankings and an abrupt end to his 2018-19 season will surely be a huge blow to his fantasy owners. Tyreke Evans, who started the third quarter for Oladipo, makes for a sensible add at this point in all formats.

Victor Oladipo hurt his knee on Wednesday and had to be carried off the court on a stretcher.
Oladipo slipped and after the trainer took a look at his knee and wrapped it with a towel a stretcher was called onto the court. This is not good. Non-contact injuries are nasty and we should learn more after an MRI. Stay tuned.

Victor Oladipo led the Pacers to victory over the Hornets on Sunday, ending the week on a high note with 21 points (8-of-20 shooting), two rebounds, seven dimes, three steals and two 3-pointers.
While he's not the same breakout star we fell in love with from 2017-18, Dipo has managed to slowly find an upward albeit bumpy path in the right direction after being lost with a slow start on the season. He's got the chops to blow up in the second half of the season, so he's still at a buy-low range right now, if you have faith in his game.

Victor Oladipo shot 4-of-15 from the field on Saturday, scoring 12 points and adding three rebounds and three assists to his tally.
Oladipo hasn't been living up to the hype, especially after being pegged as a first-round ADP at the start of the 2018-2019 season. Nonetheless, he's still posting top-40 to top-50 value in the past two weeks and should be staying around that vicinity until he turns the corner. The injury bug's way behind already and we still think Oladipo can sniff his way back to the top-20 if the all-star break seems beneficial for his overall health.

Victor Oladipo shot 6-of-20 from the field on Thursday, scoring 15 points and adding seven assists.
This was a really quiet outing for Oladipo offensively, and he didn't pitch in his normal quota of steals either. it's been a bit of a regression year from Oladipo, which on some level was expected after a first-round finish last season, but barely sitting inside the top-40 as he's played through some injuries this year is tougher to swallow.

Victor Oladipo needed only 28 minutes to post 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting with four rebounds, six assists, three triples and one steal in Friday's win over the Knicks.
Dipo has not been the fantasy beast he was in 2017-18 but has still managed to scrounge together mid-to-early round value on most nights, despite dealing with a sore knee late in 2018. He's a guy who can deliver top-5 value on a week-on-week level, so owners may want to exercise a bit of patience with the Pacers' stud.

Victor Oladipo shot 6-for-14 from the field for 17 points with two boards, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes on Tuesday against the Cavs.
Oladipo isn't quite living up to his first-round ADP, but he is still playing at an early-round clip despite the injury slowing him down. He looks to be well past the injury bug, which should make owners content with their selection. Expect Oladipo to remain an early-round asset for the remainder of the season.

Victor Oladipo played superhero for the Pacers in Friday's OT win over the Bulls, leading his team with 36 points on 14-of-28 shooting, adding seven rebounds, four assists, four 3-pointers, three steals and a blocked shot.
This performance should assuage any concerns regarding Dipo's knees, as he ran up and down the floor in overtime to make sure they got the win. He's making his way up the rankings at a slow but steady pace. He has a top-12 upside but will need some more monster games to yank his season-long production in that direction.

Victor Oladipo notched 22 points, four rebounds, seven assists, five steals and a pair of 3-pointers in Monday's 116-108 win over the Hawks.
Oladipo bounced back nicely from a quiet game on Friday, not that you were necessarily panicked about a single-game blip from him. He's been a mild letdown with value outside the top-20 but we'd bet on him getting into at least the top-15 if he can just stay healthy the rest of the way.
December 28, 2018, 9:32 pmVictor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo delivered a sub-par performance on Friday, recording just seven points on 2-of-9 shooting with five rebounds, seven dimes and two steals.
He played just 26 minutes as the Pacers had this game in the bag early. Aside from the lower than normal playing time, Oladipo is probably operating at less than 100 percent health given his recent shoulder injury. Give him some time to heal up and he should be better than this for sure. Darren Collison stepped up with a perfect shooting night to finish with 19 points, two triples, two rebounds, seven rebounds and two steals.

Victor Oladipo (shoulder) will play on Friday against the Pistons.
Oladipo was expected to play and this is confirmation. After a slow start to this season, Dipo has turned it up a little with top-25 9-cat value over the last two months. hopefully, he can keep it up and get his season-long ranking into the top-20.
