Pacers’ Victor Oladipo taken from court on stretcher after knee injury

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Pacers star guard Victor Oladipo went down with an apparent knee injury in the second quarter Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors. 

Oladipo was recovering to defend Toronto’s Pascal Siakam, who had jumped to catch a long pass. Oladipo fell in the lane and grabbed his right knee immediately.

Players from both teams gathered around Oladipo as Pacers trainers attended to him.

Oladipo missed 11 games earlier this season with a knee injury. The Pacers went 7-4 in his absence.

He was taken off the court on a stretcher but waved to fans on the way off.

The team said Oladipo will have an MRI tomorrow and an update will be provided then.

Oladipo is averaging 19.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists for the Pacers, who entered Wednesday night’s action with the third best record in the Eastern Conference.
