You know the story by now.  Oladipo’s 2018-19 season has ended after a knee injury on January 23.  He did play long enough to be voted as an NBA All-Star for the second straight season, although he will of course not play in the game.  It was a disappointing ending on the team level as well, as the Pacers were soaring prior to the injury.

Noah Vonleh – New York
