    Victor Oladipo played only 13 games in 2019-20 after 12-month absence.

    Taking only the 13-game stint into consideration, Oladipo posted top 200/250 per-game value for 8/9 cat leagues which is a far cry from his top-10 performance in 2017-18 but is also completely unfair to judge on such a small sample after a long hiatus while recovering from injury. He flashed his tremendous upside in his last game of the season against the Celtics on March 10 with 27 points, five triples, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block while shooting 56.3 percent from the floor. He has ruled himself out of coming back for the restart this season and will turn his focus on trying to return next year stronger than ever.

    On his Twitter account, Malcolm Brogdon (COVID-19) announced to fans that "I'm feeling well. and I'm ready for Orlando."

    Brogdon's positive test result was reported on June 24 so he has had 14 days to recover from the virus. It appears that the Pacers will have Brogdon available for the resumption season and he should continue to see an increased workload with Victor Oladipo sidelined.

    Shams Charania is reporting that Victor Oladipo will sit out the remainder of the Pacers' season.

    Oladipo decided to exercise caution as his quad tendon is still susceptible to a relapse, and the circumstances of the Orlando bubble are anything but predictable. It's a big hit to the Pacers chances when play resumes, but Oladipo should be close to 100 percent next year as he continues his rehab and seeks to further strengthen his quad tendon. This season was a flop as he only appeared in 13 games, but Oladipo should be looking to return fully recovered and seeking early-round value next year. The Pacers will continue leaning on their depth to fill the void, and Malcolm Brogdon will continue to be the lead guard running the show in Indiana.

    The Pacers President of Basketball Operations, Kevin Pritchard, said on Tuesday that one player on the team remains undecided about resuming the basketball season due to personal issues.

    Pritchard did not mention who the player was, nor did he give any inclination to the player, so we can only speculate on who it may be. Pritchard did say that he is not going to force anyone to play, and the decision is completely up to the players. The deadline to decide on playing is Wednesday, so we should have an answer to this situation soon.

    Victor Oladipo will increase his activity this week before determining whether or not he'll suit up when the NBA resumes its season.

    Oladipo wants to see how his quad tendon reacts to some workouts before committing to playing when the league is set to return at the end of July. He said repeatedly during the season that he was not 100% and admitted that he probably wasn't even at 80% despite playing 13 games this year. It was evident in his output, as Oladipo shot just 39.1% from the field and finished with top-195/250 value (8/9-cat) on a per-game basis. His decision should have a major impact on the playoff race, with Indiana sitting in fifth in the East.

    Ian Begley of SNY is reporting that extension negotiations between Victor Oladipo and the Pacers were put on hold at the beginning of the 2019-20 season.

    Oladipo's current contract will expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, and he is likely hoping to improve his worth by building upon the 13 games he has been able to play this season to date. Historically, the Pacers have looked to avoid allowing coveted players to enter into free agency, such as Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis. If the Pacers became convinced Oladipo's price tag is too high, there would be an active market for the 2017-18 All-NBA performer. Looking towards next season, Oladipo will be an intriguing player to target in the middle rounds of drafts, as he looks to prove he is fully recovered from his ruptured right quad tendon that caused him to sit out until February.

    Victor Oladipo finished with a season-high 27 points (9-of-16 FG, 5-of-7 3 PT), seven rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

    Remarkably, this was the first time he cracked the 20-point mark this year (13 games). Oladipo has been decent over the last two weeks, ranking inside the top-75. He really inside a preferable starting point guard option for fantasy managers but if he's all you have, you're going to have to roll with him.

    Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) will be available to play against the Celtics on Tuesday.

    This will be Oladipo's third straight game as he looks to finish the season off strong. The Pacers are going to need even more production than they thought from Oladipo with Malcolm Brogdon week-to-week and Jeremy Lamb out for the season. Oladipo has an immense upside as long as he can stay on the court and get comfortable.

    Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) is officially listed as questionable heading into Tuesday's tilt vs. the Celtics.

    Oladipo has been able to suit up for the Pacers' last two contests despite being listed as questionable ahead of time. The same can be assumed for Tuesday's game barring any setback. Oladipo has struggled this season but is worth rostering across all formats in the hopes that he can put it all together over the last month of the season. Monitor the wire as we will learn more about Dipo's availability ahead of tip-off tomorrow.

    Despite dealing with right knee soreness, Victor Oladipo played in his second straight game on Sunday vs. the Mavs, going for 16 points, seven assists, four rebounds and one block.

    Oladipo had some warts with 6-of-18 shooting, no 3-pointers, zero steals and three turnovers, but he made some key plays to win this game and the Pacers will turn to him as a creator while Malcolm Brogdon is out. While Oladipo's shooting is a cause for concern, the picture is looking more promising as he attempts to regain his prior form.

    Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) is a go for Sunday's matchup with the Mavs.

    Oladipo was questionable after returning from a two-game absence on Friday, so it's just good to see that he's not dealing with anything major. It's been a struggle so far for him, but Oladipo could resume primary ball-handling duty with Malcolm Brogdon out week-to-week. Things are lining up for Dipo to turn it around.

    Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Oladipo returned from a two-game absence because of his right knee just last night, so perhaps this is the Pacers taking it slow with their star. It's been rough sledding so far, but Oladipo should have every chance to turn his campaign around once he's healthy with news that Malcolm Brogdon is week-to-week.

    Victor Oladipo made his return from a two-game absence on Friday, putting up 16 points, four dimes, three rebounds and two steals in 26 minutes.

    Even though he missed two games this week, he ranks inside the top-100 over the last two weeks on a per game basis. He went 5-for-10 from the field on Friday but free throws have been the real struggle since he returned in late January from a long layoff. He only made four of his six shots from the stripe vs. the Bulls.

    Victor Oladipo's knee will not stop him from playing on Friday versus the Bulls.

    The Pacers will be without Malcolm Brogdon (hip) on Friday, making Oladipo's role in the offense all the more crucial. Doug McDermott (toe) is also out, removing another scorer from the equation. Oladipo is still a risky play who is not physically back to where he was a year ago, but you can't argue with his historical upside if you are looking for a high-reward option.

    Victor Oladipo is questionable to face the Bulls on Friday as he continues to work his way back from a knee injury.

    The Pacers are currently dealing with a lot of injuries to key rotation players. Oladipo has missed the previous two games and it is now even more important for the team to get him back with Malcolm Brogdon (hip) now doubtful. Justin Holiday, Doug McDermott, T.J. McConnell and Edmond Sumner could be in line for additional opportunity if Oladipo is ruled out. It is worth noting that Doug McDermott is also questionable with a toe injury.
