Victor Oladipo suffered a season-ending knee injury just 10 minutes into last night’s victory over the Toronto Raptors.
This is a massive blow to a Pacers team that has been playing phenomenal basketball. Victor Oladipo is a special player that teams really have to pay attention to. He can hit threes and tough mid-range jumpers.
This Pacers team can survive without him on the court, but they are going to have to play differently. When you take a deeper look at this Pacers squad, you will see how complex their roster is. They are actually a deep team that is still dangerous.
Oh no. Victor Oladipo is down with what looks like a serious knee injury. pic.twitter.com/lppgTLjabc

What this team will miss, is the clutchness that Oladipo brings. He is the guy that takes the last shot, the guy that teams are worried about.
Now opposing teams can focus on neutralizing Darren Collins or playing straight up man defense on the Pacers. All you have to do is go on Twitter and see how well respected Oladipo is around the league.
🙏🏾 also prayers up to @VicOladipo maaan. Safe and quick recovery
