MIAMI (AP) Victor Oladipo's season is over, and the two-time All-Star and former All-NBA selection may be looking at another long rehabilitation before he can return to the court. The Miami Heat announced Wednesday that Oladipo has elected to have surgery on his right quadriceps tendon. The quad tendon is the same one that he injured in 2019 as a member of the Indiana Pacers, an injury that sidelined him for a full calendar year.
Lakers star LeBron James announced on Twitter he will not return from injury Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets.
LeBron James and the Lakers have been insisting that if he and the Lakers are healthy in the postseason, they remain the team to beat.
