G - MIA - OUT
Heat G Victor Oladipo is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on his right quadriceps tendon Thursday. At this moment, there is no timetable for his return, but he has been ruled out for at least the remainder of the 2021 season.
It's a huge loss for Miami, who although had been without Oladipo for a month, would've greatly benefited from his return in the playoffs. Expect F Trevor Ariza and G Kendrick Nunn to continue logging minutes in Oladipo's place as the Heat attempt to secure their playoff seeding.
Victor Oladipo scored 18 points (5-8 Fg, 6-6 Ft, 2-3 3Pt) four rebounds, three steals, two assists, and one block across 25 minutes in the Heat's 110-104 win over the Lakers on Thursday night in Miami.
Oladipo had his best game so far as a member of the Heat and considering that he only played 25 minutes and stuffed the stat sheet like he did you'd have to be happy if you happen to have him on your fantasy roster. Oladipo's fantasy stock is going to take a bit of a hit considering the roster he's on but he should be able to contribute a decent floor of about 15.0 ppg. The Heat will travel to Portland to take on the Blazers on Sunday in their next game.
Victor Oladipo scored 16 points (6-14 Fg, 3-5 Ft, 1-4 3Pt) six rebounds, and two assists across 33 minutes in the Heat's 124-112 loss to the Grizzlies on Tuesday night in Miami.
Oladipo could only improve after his first two games with the Heat as he averaged just seven points in his first two games. The downside for Oladipo was he was a -18 while on the court so that could hurt him with Coach Spoelstra when it comes to minutes. The Heat will next take on the Lakers on Thursday night at home.
Victor Oladipo is expected to make his Miami debut Thursday when the Heat take on the Golden State Warriors.
Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said Wednesday that he expected Oladipo to make his Miami debut Thursday, so this comes as no surprise. Oladipo might be needed heavily with Goran Dragic (back) ruled out and Kendrick Nunn (ankle) listed as questionable.
Miami Heat guard Victor Oladipo (illness) has been ruled out Wednesday against the Pacers.
Oladipo has once again been ruled out with an illness and will still not debut on Wednesday. According to the Heat head coach, OIladipo will however join the team and be available to play on Thursday.
