The Pacers have found a way to play well during his absence, but there's no question they'll get a huge boost when Victor Oladipo returns to the lineup. When will the star guard be back? It could be as soon as tonight:
After going winless in his absence a year ago (0-7), Indiana has gone 7-4 in this 11-game stretch thanks to the increased level of play of guys like Myles Turner and Bojan Bogdanovic. Oladipo did play in 5-on-5 drills without pain yesterday, which is a good sign moving forward.
Even if the All-NBA performer doesn't return tonight, it's good to see a light at the end of the tunnel for Vic's rehab.
