Pacers’ Victor Oladipo out indefinitely
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Pacers’ Victor Oladipo will be out indefinitely with a sore right knee.
The All-Star guard has missed the last six games. Until today’s news, he was considered day-to-day.
The team made the announcement via its Twitter account, writing further updates will be provided when warranted.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported there is no structural issues with the knee and he is expected to return to action in the near future.
“I got to be at 100 percent the way I play,” Oladipo said at the team’s shoot-around Thursday. “As hard as I play at both ends, I got to be 100 percent in order to play at that level to help my team, so I have to make sure that I’m good.”
The former Hoosiers’ All-American is averaging 21.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game in his second season with the Pacers.
The team wraps up a four-game western trip Saturday in Sacramento after falling to the Los Angeles Lakers last night.
