GIndiana Pacers
Out For Season
July 3, 2020
Oladipo (knee/quadriceps) will not participate in the resumption of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. "With all the variables, from how I have to build my 5-on-5 workload back up, to the increased risk of a soft tissue injury which could delay my rehab, and the unknown exact set up of the bubble, I just can't get my mind to being fully comfortable in playing," said Oladipo. "Getting fully healthy for the 2020-21 season is the right decision for me." He will still join the Pacers in Orlando to rehab and support his teammates.
