Kevin Pritchard said he hoped that Victor Oladipo would return to the Indiana Pacers lineup sometime in December or January.

Oladipo ruptured his right quad tendon last January. 

“He might be out a little bit. I’m hopeful he’ll be back December or January. I don't think it's right to say, 'Well, we know he's going to be back. He'll be back at this time.' Because the truth is the body heals at a different rate for every person," said Pritchard.

Oladipo told the IndyStar last month that he understands the limits of his body during the rehab process. 

"I know my body more better than ever than now going through this rehab process. It’s like relearning my body. I’ll know what to do what not to do, not to overdo it.”
