Victor Oladipo decides to participate in the NBA season to restart
Indiana Pacers star Victor Oladipo (Victor Oladipo) will withdraw from Orlando’s NBA game.
Oladipo will still travel with the team and perform rehabilitation training in Orlando, although he did not participate in the competition, but still get paid.
The Pacers’ shooting guard decision was not based on the COVID-19 pandemic, but on the fear of injury to his quadriceps tendon.
“We fully respect and understand Victor’s decision not to restart the game during the NBA season,” said Kevin Pritchard, president of the Pacers basketball business.
“For our players, whether it is physical or mental health, their health is always the top priority. Victor looks good in training, but the timing of the restart and the lack of 5 to 5 activities make it difficult for him to do Out of the higher level of competition that he expected to prevent further injuries. His future health is the first priority, and we look forward to his all-round recovery in the 2020-21 season.”
Oladipo, 28, made 13 appearances in the 2019-20 season before the coronavirus pandemic stopped the NBA game.
At that time, Oladipo averaged a career low of 25.9 minutes per game, averaging 13.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists.
Oladipo worked hard to admit that he still did not reach 100%.
“Part of the recovery is to get you back to 100% status, so in the final analysis, it is necessary to go back and accelerate the progress as we will do, and almost have to play the playoffs and playoffs after eight games, I am better than other People are more vulnerable. So it’s not now. This is related to longevity.” Oladipo said.
Victor Oladipo (Victor Oladipo) and Pacers (Pacers) sat 36-29, enough to be fifth in the Eastern Conference.
Indiana’s reopened first game will be against the Philadelphia 76ers on August 1.
