Victor Oladipo has reversed course and has indicated there's a "strong possibility" he'll play in the NBA's return if his body continues to respond to workouts.
“My body is feeling good,” Oladipo said Wednesday after the Pacers practiced. “It was hard for me to assess where I was at…with Corona and all of that, I couldn’t really control it. There’s a possibility I could play.”
Oladipo initially declared he would not play for the Pacers when the season restarts, citing concerns over a lack of conditioning for the torn right quad he suffered in January of 2019.
The NBA and NBPA are also disputing whether Oladipo would be owed his remaining salary for the season if he doesn't play despite traveling with the Pacers to the bubble.
“Be cognizant of the fact that I am human,” Oladipo said. “There are some days that I’m not, don’t get me wrong. I could be a super hero any day. As a matter of fact, I am, I’m telling you, but even super heroes have kryptonite. But in all seriousness, though, I’m coming out here and I’m trying my best to take it one day at a time. I feel like the universe will manifest itself, and whatever is supposed to happen, will happen.”
