Fresh off a career year and his first All-Star appearance in 2017-2018, Oladipo started his second season with the Indiana Pacers on a tear, averaging 22.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists in October. He continued to shine through November, averaging 20.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists per tilt. That stretch included four double-doubles, as well as a season-high 36 points in a loss to Philadelphia on Nov. 7. On Nov. 17, in a game versus Atlanta, Oladipo hurt his right knee and missed 11 games. He returned Dec. 12 and posted 12 points and 10 boards in a win over the Bucks. On Jan. 4, he matched his season high of 36 points in an overtime win at Chicago. But then right knee trouble struck once again. Oladipo suffered a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee 10 minutes into a Jan. 23 contest with the Toronto Raptors. The injury forced season-ending surgery. Oladipo was still named to the All-Star team, despite the injury. He ended up playing just 36 games for the Pacers, averaging 18.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists. His per contest rebound and assist figures were both career highs. Oladipo also averaged 2.0 steals-plus-blocks per game. The electric guard has two more seasons remaining on his contract with the Pacers. Oladipo may miss games at the start of the 2019-20 season while he rehabs his knee.2017
