Per Shams Charania, there is a growing belief that Pacers star Victor Oladipo will attempt to play in the NBA restart. Initially, he had stated he planned to sit out. Now, we are tempted to think otherwise.

In January of last year, he tore his quadriceps tendon on a fastbreak play. The injury caused Oladipo to miss the rest of the season. This year, he has made his return Indiana’s lineup. He was not at full strength. His points per game average dropped back to the numbers he put up as a rookie.

Indiana is the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference. With Oladipo in the lineup, they have the potential for a decent playoff performance.

Furthermore, Oladipo has had the last four months to focus solely on his rehab and training. For all we know, he could be at full strength now.
