Pacers' Oladipo to sit out restart of season

Share

Indiana Pacers All-Star Victor Oladipo has been working toward a return, however it was reported on Friday that Oladipo has chose to continue rehabbing and sit out the remaining regular season playoffs.

"I have to be smart and this decision hasn't been easy, but I truly believe continuing on the course I'm on and getting fully healthy for the 2020-21 season is the right decision for me", Oladipo said, per Charania.

"I really want to play, and as a competitor and teammate this is tearing me apart", Oladipo said.

Oladipo still plans to travel to Orlando next week with the rest of his team, per Charania.

"A part of rehab is working your way back and getting yourself to 100%, so at the end of the day, going back and turning things up as quickly as we're about to do, and pretty much going to playoff formation and playoff games after eight games, I'm more susceptible to injury than anyone /else is".

Parham, who helped launch the NBPA's mental health program in 2018, expects many players to handle the resumption well.

This slow beat tune is still popular among the audiences. "She would always say she still has a lot to offer to the industry". She was admitted to Bandra's Guru Nanak Hospital hospital on June 27 after she complained of trouble with breathing.

By the time he starts playing again Oladipo will have undergone nearly two years of rehab for the injury. He was averaging 13.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and three assists during that stretch.

Oladipo suffered torn quad tendon last season and was still making his way back from the injury before games were suspended in March.

Chicago reportedly might get to play host to the eight National Basketball Association teams not invited to compete this month within the league's so-called bubble in Orlando, Fla., largely sealed off from the public in a bid to limit risk of COVID-19 exposure.

IN is set to resume play on August 1 against the Philadelphia 76ers. "We remain excited about what they can accomplish in Orlando".

Oladipo, 28, had every reason to err on the side of caution this summer: He is set to enter the final season of a four-year, $84 million contract in 2020-21.

The Pacers finished with a 39-26 record before the NBA's hiatus, good enough for fifth in the Eastern Conference.
