Another injury basically made it inevitable for Oladipo to play. Can you imagine him being healthy enough to play but sit out while others want to play but have real injuries?

I wish this would come as bigger surprises, but Brogdon and Goga, we were able to get them because they carry some health question marks with them. Goga injury real bummer now with Domas out and facing Embiid and the Sixers.

I guess the silver lining is that all these injuries (and recovering from injury) better fall all together in one year than missing a key player every year in the next seasons.

Brogdon, yes. But Goga was healthy at the draft and no health concerns from Euro ball.

As for Brogdon’s injury forcing Oladipo to play, I disagree. It’s almost enough on top of Sabonis, Lamb, and Goga to give him a pretty easy out for Oladipo.

True, but it's Kevin Pritchard, so indirectly we have to have some health question marks when players "drop" to us.

Pacers never tank. With Oladipo, there will be a battle. Without him and without Malcolm/Domas, we could have better given another team a chance to cuddle minny mouse.
