Pacers fear standout guard Oladipo lost for season

Victor Oladipo

Their star shooting guard Victor Oladipo suffered a horrendous knee injury as against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

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

Following the game, the Pacers said Oladipo had suffered a "serious injury" to his knee and would undergo an MRI on Thursday for a full diagnosis.

The Pacers issued a statement calling the injury "serious" and saying that Oladipo will have an MRI on Thursday to examine the extent of the damage.

"I didn't see what happened", Siakam said. He received a standing ovation from fans as he was carted off the floor on a stretcher and responded by waving to the crowd.

USA report says rapidly modernizing Chinese military has set sights on Taiwan
The U.S.is Taiwan's chief source of military hardware and is legally bound to respond to threats against its security. The official also cautioned that China's military still faced gaps in its capabilities.

Only the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto have a better record than the Pacers in the Eastern Conference, while the Philadelphia 76ers are one game behind in in fourth place. It was clear, though, that the injury was going to overshadow the rest of the game - if not Indiana's season. The Pacers say an MRI revealed today that Oladipo has a ruptured quadriceps tendon in his knee and he will have to have surgery to fix it.

In an Instagram post from the Indiana Pacers, they gave the latest update on Oladipo. "But we want to keep fighting for him".

Losing Oladipo would be an enormous blow to the Pacers' playoff hopes. The bucket was the final mark on one of Young's finest games of the season, a 23-point, 15-rebound performance to lead the Pacers in the emotional win. The Feb. 7 trade deadline is on the horizon and there may be opportunity to pick up some immediate relief if the front office deems it necessary. "But we can't just go be sad".

"We've got to come together and play inspired basketball", said Myles Turner, who had 13 points and 10 rebounds. Tonight he knew that we needed a lift from someone.
