Oladipo, who has been working his way back from a ruptured quad suffered in January 2019, initially said he was opting out due to concerns about further injuries. It didn’t take long for him to have a change of heart and at least decide to test out his body before making a final decision, and he now appears comfortable taking the risk.
The star guard played in 13 games this season before the NBA shut down, scoring a modest 13.8 points per game as he looked to get back up to speed.
