NBA-Pacers' Oladipo leaves court on stretcher with 'serious' knee injury
Players from both teams stood around Oladipo as trainers put a towel over his leg and tended to the injury. The Pacers issued a statement calling the injury "serious" and saying that Oladipo will have an MRI on Thursday to examine the extent of the damage.
Several NBA players, including Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, and Oklahoma City forward Paul George, tweeted concern and wished for Oladipo's recovery. Oladipo, who won the league’s Most Improved Player last season, is leading the Pacers in scoring with 19.2 per game.
Indiana (32-15) is currently third in the Eastern Conference. (Writing by Jahmal Corner in Los Angeles; editing by Amlan Chakraborty)
