Oladipo "Optimistic" He'll Play Saturday


Pacers fans will have to wait one more day before finding out if Victor Oladipo will take the floor for Saturday's game against Philadelphia.


Though he stopped short of fully committing to playing during a Zoom call with the media on Friday, Oladipo strongly suggested the direction in which he is leaning.


Oladipo has participated in every practice in Orlando and started all three scrimmages the team played over the last week to prepare for the season restart.


But Pacers head coach Nate McMillan played coy with reporters after Thursday's practice, simply saying, "We will let you know about Victor come Saturday."


And while he does give extra caution to how his knee is feeling, Oladipo said that his body "bounces back really well compared to earlier in the year."


That hectic schedule is one reason why Oladipo originally opted not to play in Orlando and will continue to be a factor in his availability moving forward.
