Still taking him over Oladipo straight up. Which is likely gonna have to be our decision. Dude's never gonna get right.
I wouldn't say that. He was moving pretty well in Houston and Miami before the "pain" which could just be scar tissue or possibly something else, who knows at this point. Luckily Miami did acquire Oladipo and now have his medicals, have their own doctors looking at him and can be as educated as possible to decide how he'll be moving forward. We just saw a situation like this play out with Winslow and Miami had very little issues moving on from him.
Currently we don't know if there's an issue or what the hold up of him coming back may be. Miami could be playing it cautious with him right now allowing him to take as much time as he feels he needs or it could be Oladipo is just saying he's not ready/comfortable. I just know that last year Miami seemed to take it's time bringing players back from injuries, possibly Miami not holding them out but giving them extra time if they wanted it.Not sure if it's his hopeful opinion or something he heard
but Ira Winderman mentioned yesterday that everything could be sorted out after tomorrow's(today's) game with Charlotte(he said the wrong team), mentioning that Miami had 2 days off after the game and they could use those days as a mini training camp to reintegrate Oladipo back in with the team to be ready to play against Cleveland(which is the right team) but he'd possibly not play in back to backs.
The issue with resigning Oladipo is that this team needs to find more talent. Personally I think no matter Oladipo's health, his athletic ability will start dropping off in his early 30s so he's nearly as much of a short term option as Lowery is. With Lowry's game, he could be a very good PG into his late 30s because of how he plays and doesn't really lean on his athletic ability. The BBIQ and working hard on the court(much like Butler) will still be there for a few more years. There will be decline but he'll still be a very good player who you can lean on in crunch time.
