INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Victor Oladipo is back! For the first time in over a year, the Pacers guard will return to the floor for a matchup against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.
Oladipo suffered a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee in January of 2019 and missed the remaining 35 regular season games and the playoffs.
He is also a singer, having released an EP, Songs for You in 2017 and his debut album V.O. in 2018.
In his downtime, Oladipo was a contestant in The Masked Singer, dressed as the 'Thingamajig'.
After being eliminated in the show semifinals, he continued to recover from his injury and prepare to play again.
His highly-anticipated return has been greeted with much excitement, including a gigantic banner at Bankers Life Fieldhouse signed by fans and shoutouts from his celebrity pals.
The star guard will sport blue and gold again on Wednesday, January 29 at 7 p.m.
