Oladipo stretchered off with serious knee injury

Indiana guard Victor Oladipo was removed from the court on a stretcher with a right knee injury during the Pacers' game against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday in Indianapolis. The Pacers issued a statement calling the injury "serious" and adding that Oladipo is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Thursday. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the team fears Oladipo needs season-ending surgery.

Oladipo had four points, three rebounds and one assist before exiting with 4:05 left in the first half. He fell in the lane while defending against Raptors forward Pascal Siakam. Oladipo, the Pacers' leading scorer at 19.2 points per game, missed 11 games in November and December due to right knee soreness.

Before that injury, he was averaging 21.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists. His current production is still better than his 17.5-point career average. --Field Level Media
