Oladipo averaged 18.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists for the Pacers last season before he got hurt. The All-Star guard shot 42.3 percent from the field, 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 73.0 percent from the free-throw line.
Once Oladipo gets his legs underneath him and develops chemistry with Malcolm Brogdon, Indiana figures to be even more lethal on offense moving forward.
Brogdon, when healthy, has been carrying the Pacers on offense. His job will get a lot easier once Oladipo is playing like the All-Star he is.
It’s going to take time for Oladipo to get his rhythm back. Fortunately for the Pacers, they have other weapons on offense who can do some heavy lifting until their All-Star guard is ready to put the team back on his shoulders.
