About a month ago, it was announced that the Indiana Pacers’ Victor Oladipo would not be suiting up for the team in Orlando when the NBA season resumed. It was said that it would be too big of a risk for him to do so, as a fresh injury could derail his burgeoning career once more. However, that appears to not necessarily be the case any longer.
The man himself has said “I’m definitely here trying to play.” Of course, he is in the ‘bubble’ with his teammates, and we shouldn’t be surprised to see a competitor actively trying to participate when he is exposed to it such as he is. He made it evident that he was not worried about not being paid if he didn’t play and that this was all about his knee. With that said, it seems he’s itching to play, and fans of the Pacers will no doubt be welcoming him to do so, as he is the player the team is built around and can make a major difference as they chase an unlikely title.
