INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A promising season for the Indiana Pacers was instantly transformed when Victor Oladipo's leg buckled and he fell to the floor in pain.
Indiana showed earlier this season it can win without the All-Star guard, at least in the short term. Now, the third-best team in the Eastern Conference may have to push ahead without him for a much longer stretch.
Oladipo was carried off the court on a stretcher during the second quarter of the Pacers' 110-106 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night with a serious right knee injury. He is scheduled for an MRI on Thursday.
