Victor Oladipo suffers nasty knee injury
Victor Oladipo was taken off the court on a stretcher after suffering a knee injury during Wednesday night’s Indiana Pacers-Toronto Raptors game.
Oladipo was hustling back on defense on a fastbreak in the second quarter. Toronto pushed a pass ahead to Pascal Siakam, and Oladipo ended up undercutting the Toronto forward after his knee gave out.
