Victor Oladipo is set to make his return to the Indiana Pacers’ lineup after missing the last year with a ruptured quad, and The Jump is excited to have one of the game’s bright young stars back in the fold.
The two-time All-Star will add a boost to a Pacers squad that is firmly in the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference, and with the addition of Oladipo, this team could have its sights set on an Eastern Conference title.
Paul won’t have huge expectations immediately, as it takes time to re-acclimate back to the NBA game, but The Truth believes Oladipo can be a presence late in games for the Pacers.
“It’s going to take some time,” Pierce said. “What he will give them is a presence, a guy who can go out there and hit big shots late in the game, a guy who can create a basket.”
