Pacers guard Victor Oladipo will sit out season restart

The Pacers are fifth in the Eastern Conference at 39-26 this season as they prepare for the NBA's 22-team plan to finish the 2019-20 season in Orlando starting on July 30. I have to be smart and this decision has not been easy, but I really believe that continuing in the course I am in and being completely healthy for the 2020-21 season is the right decision for me.

Oladipo joins a roster of players that includes Avery Bradley, DeAndre Jordan, Davis Bertans, Wilson Chandler, Trevor Ariza and Willie Cauley-Stein who will be left without the National Basketball Association restart.

Oladipo returned to action in January after missing a year due to a torn quad tendon. "I experience like I'm at a great location in my rehab and having nearer and closer to 100 percent". With all the variables, from how I have to construct my 5-on-five workload back again up, to the elevated danger of a smooth-tissue injury which could hold off my rehab, and the unfamiliar correct setup of the bubble, I just can't get my intellect to now being thoroughly snug in enjoying.

In Texas alone, 7,890 patients were hospitalized after 238 new admissions over the past 24 hours. The US virus death toll is fast approaching 130,000, roughly one-quarter the world's total.


The two-time All-Star guard - who has played just 13 games this season after taking the floor only 36 times in 2018-19 - cited his lengthy injury history when explaining why he has opted out of the rest of the season. He also has played for the Orlando Magic (2013-14 to 2015-16) and the Oklahoma City Thunder (2016-17).

The 28-year-old, who is under contract until 2021, will focus on his health as the Pacers, who now own the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference, start games on July 30. They are slated to resume the season against the 76ers on August 1.
