Special ‘Together 4 Vic’ shirts being handed out at Monday’s Pacers game
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Indiana Pacers will be without Victor Oladipo for the rest of the season—but the All-Star guard isn’t far from fans’ and teammates’ minds.
The Pacers will hand out “Together 4 Vic” t-shirts as part of a “gold out” Monday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, when the Pacers host the Western Conference-leading Golden State Warriors.
Earlier Monday, the Pacers staff donned the shirts to show their support for Oladipo:
Oladipo suffered a season-ending injury last week against the Toronto Raptors when he ruptured a quad tendon in his right knee. The team announced Thursday that Oladipo would miss the rest of the year.
The Pacers fell in their first game without their All-Star, losing 106-103 to the Memphis Grizzlies on the road Saturday night.
There is some good news, though. Monday afternoon, the team tweeted that Oladipo’s surgery was successful and he’s expected to make a full recovery.
The Pacers take on the Warriors tonight.
