Victor Oladipo (knee/quad) admitted he wasn't fully healthy when the season came to an abrupt halt on March 11.
“I had a great game," Oladipo said, referring to his 27-point game vs. Boston on Mar. 10. "I played well, but I’d be lying if I said I was even 80 percent out there." He's been lifting, playing and working out five days a week, and suggested that the months-long shutdown could benefit him. “I kind of just jumped right in, right in the middle of the year,” Oladipo said. “But now I get a chance to kind of reset, restart." Hopefully, when play resumes he'll resemble the All-Star we saw in 2018 and 2019. May 21 9:51 am (EST)
