Victor Oladipo said he will increase his physical activity and re-evaluate his repaired torn quad tendon injury before making a decision on whether to return this season for the Indiana Pacers.
Oladipo said he wants to return to the court while limiting his risk of significant injury. Oladipo returned to the Pacers in January after a year-long recovery from injury.
"I feel a whole lot better. I know there's risk going into it with the unique situation that I'm in -- being off so long and trying to ramp it up that fast. I've just got to be smart, that's all," said to ESPN.
The Pacers have been cautious and working with Oladipo through his rehab.
Players must inform their teams by Wednesday if they plan to go to Orlando. Teams must then provide a roster by July 1st.
The Pacers could also keep Oladipo active through training camp before making a final decision.
