Victor Oladipo continues to show good development. He gradually recovered from a knee injury. Indiana Pacers also sent him to Fort Wayne Mad Ants, their affiliated team in the G League, on Tuesday 12 November 2019 local time.
Oladipo will train there for an indefinite period of time. He will also see a doctor in the next few weeks to evaluate the injury. The Pacers want their players to recover 100 percent.
Oladipo has been absent since last January. He suffered an injury to his left knee so he was forced to pull over until the season ended. Oladipo only appeared in 36 matches with an average of 18.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.7 steals. Fortunately, Pacers can still rely on other players. They managed to penetrate the playoffs despite falling in the first round.
In 2017-2018, Oladipo had a chance to take the Pacers to the playoffs. They even almost defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, the team defended by LeBron James was difficult to overthrow.
Oladipo himself won the Most Improved Player of the Year award that season. He underwent significant development as soon as he moved from Oklahoma City Thunder to Pacers. Currently, Oladipo is their star player.
Therefore, the Pacers hope their players can return to normal. They want to target a higher target. That requires more power.
Oladipo also wants to join the team immediately. He has been training separately since October. However, it cannot appear yet because the injury is still recovering. He is motivated to do his best so he can really come back. (put)
