Pray for Oladipo.
Victor Oladipo is an inspiration on and off the court. Oladipo plays for the Indiana Pacers, but he does make music when he's not dominating on the court. He is averaging 19 PPG, five rebounds and five assists. The talented guard was running the court on Wednesday night when his leg buckled and he collapsed on the court. Oladipo was attempting to defend a full-court pass to Pascal Siakam when the injury occurred.
After struggling on the ground, Oladipo was taken off the court in a stretcher. It didn't appear he was in too much pain as he lifts his arms to acknowledge the crowd. The Indiana Pacer's Twitter has revealed that the injury is "serious," and that Oladipo will have an MRI tomorrow. It was a non-contact injury, which have a nerve-racking reputation of being dangerous. "I just slipped and knew it was serious," Oladipo said to reporters after the game. "We'll see what tomorrow shows and go from there. My teammates stepped up earlier this season and everyone has the utmost confidence going forward." The Pacers still went on to beat the Raptors 110-106.
