Oladipo's season over with ruptured quad tendon in right knee

Victor Oladipo

Indiana Pacers star Victor Oladipo was carried out of Wednesday night's game on a stretcher after he suffered a serious right knee injury in the second quarter against the Toronto Raptors.

Victor Oladipo left Wednesday's game between the Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors on a stretcher with an apparent knee injury.

"It is a serious injury and we'll know more after the MRI", coach Nate McMillan said. He will undergo surgery at a date to be determined, according to the press release.

Oladipo entered Wednesday leading the Pacers in scoring with 19.2 points per game, while also contributing 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. They're still third in the NBA's Eastern Conference standings.

IN went 7-4 when Oladipo missed 11 games earlier this season with a sore right knee.

Oladipo was injured as he scrambled to defend an outlet pass to Toronto's Pascal Siakam and crumpled to the floor awkwardly.

Players around the league and members of the media were quick to show their concern, sharing messages of support and well wishes on Twitter. "We can't let this get us stuck in the mud". Describing Oladipo as "the most positive guy on this team" and having "a handsome spirit about him", McMillan said, "He has always been a guy that tried to lift his team - we got to lift him now".

Still awaiting news on Oladipo, the Pacers will surely look to make some addition before the trade deadline on Feb 7.

"That kid has a handsome spirit about him", said head coach Nate McMillan. "It's emotional, but we have to overcome it and play".

Thaddeus Young's 15 rebounds were one shy of his career high of 16 and were the most he's ever recorded as a member of the Pacers. "We have to lift him now".

"I haven't talked to the trainers about it, but he wasn't complaining before last night", McMillan said, acknowledging Oladipo remained upbeat Thursday.

The Pacers will have a few night off to regroup before returning to the court in Memphis on Saturday night.
