Report: Victor Oladipo will need season-ending knee surgery

Victor Oladipo knee

The Indiana Pacers may have lost Victor Oladipo for the season.

Oladipo suffered a nasty knee injury in the second quarter of the Pacers’ game against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night and had to be taken off the court on a stretcher. The Pacers acknowledged on Twitter that Oladipo had suffered a “serious” knee injury and said he would undergo an MRI on Thursday.

For now, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that a preliminary examination left the Pacers fearing that Oladipo will need season-ending knee surgery.

This would be an awful blow to the Pacers. Indiana entered play on Wednesday 31-15 and third in the Eastern Conference standings. They’ve had strong play from several players like Bojan Bogdanovic, Myles Turner, Domantas Sabonis, Thaddeus Young and Darren Collison, but the true leader of the team is Oladipo.
