The Indiana Pacers expect Victor Oladipo to "soon" be cleared for halfcourt five-on-five drills.

Oladipo tore his right quadriceps tendon in January.

"He'll be able to play some 5-on-5 in the half court the next couple days," Nate McMillan said. "That's good. That's a good sign. ... It's good news to be able to participate in the first part of practice." 

A realistic timetable for Oladipo's return has been unclear up until this point.
