    Victor Oladipo (sore lower back) is questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Oladipo was injured on Friday and missed Sunday's matchup. With Jeremy Lamb injured, Malcolm Brogdon will really be in the driver's seat for the Pacers especially if Oladipo is out longer.

    Victor Oladipo (back) will sit out Sunday's road contest vs. the Raptors.

    Coach Nate McMillan was not very optimistic about Dipo's chances of suiting up for the Pacers' game Sunday after he missed practice, so this is not a surprising development. He had been upgraded to questionable prior to being ruled out, however, so it sounds like he won't be on the shelf for too long. Oladipo's return to the court has gone anything but smooth so far. Jeremy Lamb will likely receive the start in his place and Malcolm Brogdon will run the offense with Oladipo out of the lineup.

    Victor Oladipo (back) has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Oladipo is nursing a sore back and it appears to be improving. Check back closer to tip off to see if he's able to give it a go.

    Victor Oladipo (sore back) is doubtful to play on Sunday against the Raptors.

    Oladipo left Friday's game and is still feeling some tightness, so the Pacers will probably give him all the time he needs to get right. Look for everyone to get more touches and shots with Dipo on the shelf, though Jeremy Lamb figures to be the biggest winner.

    Victor Oladipo (sore back) left Friday's game against the Knicks with concerns over his back.

    This is not good news. Oladipo has not looked particularly healthy since returning from injury in late January. That injury, however, was to his right knee, so the news about his back is not a welcome sight. An update should be provided after the game.

    Victor Oladipo will no longer be subject to a minutes restriction, but still he will not play back-to-back contests.

    Nate McMillan announced the change to reporters on Wednesday. Oladipo has averaged 11.1 points and 2.9 assists in 25.0 minutes per game so far. Just be prepared for the days of rest when the Pacers have a heavy schedule.

    Victor Oladipo continued his comeback with 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting, four boards, three dimes and two triples in 27 minutes vs. the Nets on Monday.

    After six games back, Oladipo's averages put him around number 400 in 9-cat leagues. He'll obviously improve, but he'll likely be dealing with some rust and rest games for quite a while. Keep him or trade for him at your own risk.

    With Victor Oladipo (rest) and T.J. Warren back healthy, the Pacers will deploy their ideal starting lineups featuring the two alongside Malcolm Brogdon, Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner for Monday's game against the Nets.

    Believe it or not, the Pacers had yet to use a lineup featuring Oladipo and both of their offseason acquisitions this season. There's been speculation that players like Warren, Brogdon and Sabonis stand to take a hit playing next to Oladipo and, while that may be true, all three have been such solid mid-round values this season that we do not recommend you enter into panicked negotiations to trade any of them away. Oladipo himself is starting to round back into shape and his minutes have slowly crept up. This is a wait and see situation, one in which it is likely that no elite value emerges.

    Victor Oladipo (rest) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Jeremy lamb and Aaron holiday figure to benefit the most with Oladipo sitting out the second half of a back-to-back to rest.

    Victor Oladipo took a small stride in both minutes and production in Friday's 115-106 loss at home against the Raptors, scoring 15 points with four assists and two steals.

    This was the most minutes he's logged in a game, with this being his fifth game. Oladipo played 28 minutes and should continue to take gradual jumps in floor time. He also had a season-high in points (15) and steals (two), it just doesn't jump off the page because its Victor Oladipo. His return has been less than ideal, but if you are rostering him there is little reason not to deploy him in your lineups.

    Victor Oladipo (rest) will take part in the Pacers-Raptors contest on Friday, but will sit out on Saturday against the Pelicans.

    Oladipo is not ready for back-to-back sets yet so he will miss Saturday vs. the Pelicans. The minutes are gradually building back up and Oladipo has looked plenty active on the defensive side of the floor. Just wait things out as he settles back into the Pacers' system. Once the shot falls he should be able to return to a mid-round option.

    Victor Oladipo (rest) is questionable for Friday's matchup vs. the Raptors.

    Oladipo is in jeopardy of missing his first game since returning from a serious leg injury that kept him out for a full calendar year. The injury appears to be maintenance-related as opposed to a new injury which is a good sign moving forward. Jeremy Lamb and Aaron Holiday could see additional minutes if Oladipo sits out.

    Victor Oladipo started on Wednesday but was still clearly finding his bearings, shooting 5-for-14 from the field for 13 points with two rebounds, two assists, two 3s and a steal in 25 minutes.

    This is a step in the right direction. Dipo will only gain more confidence in his shot as he plays more and more minutes. Chalk it up to rust for now. This hard-working guard has the ethic to get back to his old form, so just be a bit more patient.

    The Pacers will increase Victor Oladipo's minutes restriction from 24 to 28, while also opening the possibility of Oladipo starting as early as Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

    This is progressing faster than initially thought as the Pacers are ready to give Oladipo a near-full workload only a few games into his return from the devastating injury that caused him to miss a year. Jeremy Lamb is looking at the biggest hit to value while Oladipo sees his minutes creep up.

    Victor Oladipo is still getting into mid-season form and it's a bumpy ride as shown by his 4-of-17 shooting from the field on Monday for nine points, two assists, one trey and one block in 23 minutes.

    The minutes are rising and Dipo is a hard worker, so there's no reason to ease up on the patience he's received for most of the season. The only way is up from here.
