Indiana Pacers shooting guard Victor Oladipo told reporters that he's optimistic he can return to the court for his team's game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.
Oladipo suffered a right quad tendon tear that forced him off the court from January 2019 to January 2020.
Upon his return, he averaged 13.8 points in 25.9 minutes per game but experienced right knee soreness prior to the NBA season being suspended on March 11 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But Oladipo changed his mind, joined the Pacers in the NBA bubble and played in all three of the Pacers' scrimmages, averaging 11.3 points in 25.0 minutes per game.
