The NBA set to resume the 2019-2020 NBA season on July 30th after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the season to be postponed back in March. There will be 22 teams who will play in Orlando, Florida who will play to determine playoff seeding then progress with the NBA playoffs to crown the 2020 NBA Champions.
Among those teams heading to Orlando for the resumed season will be the Indiana Pacers who are currently tied for fifth place in the Eastern Conference with the Philadelphia 76ers holding a 39-26 record. The Pacers will be without All-Star guard Victor Oladipo who announced he will miss the reboot to focus on rehabbing.
Last season, on January 23rd, Victor Oladipo suffered a ruptured quad tendon that forced him to miss the remainder of the 2018-2019 season and the first 47 games (52 games overall) of the 2019-2020 season. In the 13 games he played after returning from injury, he averaged 13.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists.
Jeremy Lamb, who filled in for Victor Oladipo while he was out recovering from his quad injury, will also miss the season restart after tearing his ACL in February.
Victor Oladipo is one of many players that have announced that they will be missing the season’s restart later this month. These players include: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan, Trevor Ariza, John Wall, Avery Bradley, Willie Cauley-Stein and Davis Bertans.
Indiana’s Victor Oladipo has decided to sit out the NBA restart.
