I kept checking the general board front page to see what others had to say about this and never saw it. It turns out it popped up for a few pages and then already fell off the main board. It's kind of telling that nobody cares that much about this.

Feels real similar to Boogie at this point. Absolutely hate to see it.

It really worked out close to best case scenario for Indy and close to worst case for Vic. The extension could have been detrimental to the next few years for Indy; same for Houston.

Shows you that as much as we think teams know players medical condition anything can happen to re-aggravate or re-injure a player. In this case it appears Vic tried to come back too soon showing his injury wasn't healed enough or surgery and rehab didn't work. Not sure if it was his decision to start playing again too soon, doctor's, or a team pushing him to get on the court. Regardless, I hope he can make a successful recovery this time. In the end the Pacers got a tradeable asset or steady contributor in LeVert and the deal looks good for the Pacers future.

Better news for Vic, if true:

Read on Twitter

Though, kind of reads as if new surgeon is calling previous surgeon a quack :lol:

Does this mean Heat doctors are better than who Pacers have? If indeed Oladipo returns to form after his second surgery

No. Surgeries like these aren’t conducted by team doctors. A surgeon of the caliber needed to perform this type of operation wouldn’t limit themselves to working for a sports team.

Plus, the players/agents usually choose their surgeon/doctors with or without team consultation.

Didn't Vic hire his own trainer? Maybe it was the rehab rather than the surgery that is being questioned.

In all reality, it’s a re-tear, and his team is trying to control the narrative heading into free agency. And yes, he and his team hired his own trainer and surgeon. Pritchard once joked that he only knew anything about Oladipo’s rehab what he had read from Shams.
