  • Victor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (knee) returned from a 10-game absence in Wednesday's win over the Bucks, posting 12 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes of action.

    Oladipo was on a minutes limit that was never disclosed, but we'll roll the dice and say it was 30. He went 5-of-11 from the field and wasn't quite as aggressive as usual, which was to be expected after a long layoff. Still, Oladipo looked good, is reportedly pain-free and managed to put up a solid fantasy performance, so he's got to go back in all lineups. Not that you needed to hear that.

    Victor Oladipo will be in the starting lineup on Wednesday but has an unspecified minutes restriction.

    The Pacers are planning on subbing him out earlier than usual in an effort to save some of his minutes for the second half. Tyreke Evans, Doug McDermott and Aaron Holiday will all see their minutes cut tonight but that should only affect deep-league players.

    Victor Oladipo (knee) is available to play on Wednesday night.

    Oladipo just returned to practice on Tuesday but had been doing some fairly regular workouts (running, cutting, dunking, etc.) beforehand. He's got to be plugged into all fantasy lineups, but we might not get first-round Oladipo for a little bit as he last played on November 17. Tyreke Evans becomes a safe drop in most formats again, and we'll have to see how this affects Darren Collison, Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday. It's likely that Collison cools from his torrid pace of late but he's still worth holding onto.

    Victor Oladipo (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday against the Bucks.

    Oladipo played 4-on-4 in practice and was pain-free so he should return pretty soon. If he were to suit up then he would be on a minutes restriction for a couple of games at least.

    Nate McMillan is hopeful that Victor Oladipo (knee) will be able to participate in practice on Tuesday.

    It'd be a major step in Oladipo's recovery from a relatively mysterious knee injury. The Pacers would probably like to see him get in multiple practices before considering a return to the court but it does appear that Oladipo is getting closer. His return will send Tyreke Evans back to the bench and hurt Aaron Holiday's playing time, though neither has been an asset in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.

    Victor Oladipo (knee) recently told fans at a concert, "I will be back soon."

    It is all speculation, but Oladipo seems confident enough about his nearing return to express it at a concert. We'd rather hear the news from the team, coach or training staff, but it's still a positive report as he has been increasing his workouts recently.

    Victor Oladipo (knee) went through an optional shoot around on Friday afternoon.

    While Dipo is still out indefinitely it’s a good sign that he’s been increasing practice activity. He seems to be trending in the right direction and hopefully won’t be out too much longer. Cory Joseph, Tyreke Evans and even Aaron Holiday will get increased touches until he gets back.

  • Victor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers

    While Victor Oladipo (knee) remains out indefinitely, his recent on-court workout drills have included running, hard cuts, shooting and dunking.

    That doesn't look like the workout regimen of someone who is going to be out for very long. Those drills are all done solo after practice and we'll get a better sense of when he can get back into game action once he returns to full practices with his teammates, but Oladipo does appear to be trending in the right direction and keeping himself in something close to game shape.

    ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowki reported that there are no structural problems with Victor Oladipo’s knee and that he is expected to return in the “near future.”

    Returning in the near future sounds a whole lot better than out indefinitely, so it looks like a major crisis has been averted. Woj noted that Dipo is still working himself into game condition so we hope it’s not too long until he’s back on the court for the Pacers.

    The Pacers have listed Victor Oladipo (knee) as out indefinitely.

    We assume this means he won’t play on Saturday against the Kings. Dipo has already missed six games and he is on record that he’ll only return when he’s 100 percent. Until he gets back it’ll be Tyreke Evans and Cory Joseph that stand to benefit the most while Aaron Holiday and Doug McDermott are options for deeper formats.

    Victor Oladipo (knee soreness) is listed as out for Thursday's game.

    Things can change between now and tomorrow, but Oladipo needs at least a practice before returning to the court and we didn't hear anything about his activity today. We're not expecting to see Oladipo on the court until next week at this point. Tyreke Evans will continue to start in his place while Aaron Holiday has done a great job off the bench.

    J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star is reporting that Victor Oladipo will not play on Tuesday.

    Oladipo obviously is out tonight and the Pacers have called up Edmond Sumner for added guard depth. There's no timetable for his return to the court and owners will just have to sit tight. Tyreke Evans will continue to start and Aaron Holiday will look to cement a rotation spot even when the Pacers get their star back.
