Victor Oladipo will need season-ending knee surgery

Victor Oladipo

The Indiana Pacers' fears were confirmed today as the team announced that All Star shooting guard Victor Oladipo suffered a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee on Wednesday night, and will miss therefore miss the remainder of the season.

Oladipo's leg bent awkwardly as he fell to the floor while trying to disrupt an outlet pass to the Raptors' Pascal Siakam. George went to Oklahoma City in the trade that brought Oladipo, as well as forward Domantas Sabonis, to in, and while there were some questions at the time about whether the Pacers could have gotten a better return, the deal has ultimately been a shrewd one for both sides. In 35 games, he averaged 19.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.7 steals.

While the official results of the MRI have yet to be determined, ESPN's National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski had reported that the team fears Oladipo will need surgery which will cause him to miss the remainder of the season.

With Oladipo's season likely over, the Pacers will have some questions to answer in terms of their rotation. "It's emotional, but we have to overcome it and play".

Oladipo has become Indiana's leader, after looking more like a complementary piece in three seasons in Orlando, which made him the No. 2 pick in the 2013 draft, and one with the Thunder.

We wish Victor Oladipo a speedy recovery. "We're not going to speculate".

The Pacers entered Wednesday evening with a record of 31-15.
