Indiana Pacers G Victor Oladipo will not be on a minutes restriction moving forward, per coach Nate McMillan. Oladipo is expected to sit out one game during back-to-back sets, however, so the Pacers are continuing to be cautious with his return from a torn quad.

Fantasy basketball analysis: Pacers G Victor Oladipo

Dipo returned to action on Jan. 29 and has played seven games since returning from injury. He hasn’t seen more than 28 minutes in a game so far, but it appears he’ll start and see 30+ minutes the rest of the way. This is great news for Oladipo owners in season-long fantasy basketball who have waited out the injury storm. Perhaps without the restriction we’ll see Oladipo get a bit more aggressive on offense. He hasn’t scored more than 15 points this season and the most field goal attempts he has in one game is 17.
