Many players around the league have decided to opt out of participating in the restart of the NBA’s season.

Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo reportedly is still undecided on whether or not he will go to Orlando, Fla. to participate in the NBA’s restart, saying that he is taking it “one day at a time.”

Oladipo stressed the fact that he is one of the players more susceptible to injury than others, and that he is doing what is best for his future.

So far this season, Oladipo has only played in 13 games, averaging 13.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.

The Indiana University product made his 2019-20 season debut in late January after recovering from a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee. That injury occurred last season, on Jan. 23 against the Toronto Raptors. Oladipo wound up missing the rest of the 2018-19 season due to the injury.

For his career, Oladipo has averaged 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game and has been named to an All-Star team two times.

If he does end up deciding to sit out the restart, it will be interesting to see how the Pacers end up replacing Oladipo and his production.

Indiana currently sits in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with a 39-26 record.
