Victor Oladipo (back) was limited at Monday's practice.
He's missed two games in a row, but coach Billy Donovan said he's progressing well. The Thunder didn't provide much of an update, but we'll know more after Tuesday's shootaround. If Dipo misses another game, Alex Abrines looks like the clear beneficiary after logging 35 minutes on Sunday vs. the Pelicans with 13 points and three 3-pointers. Feb 27 - 1:55 PM

Date:

Victor Oladipo (back) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Sunday.

Oladipo warmed up tonight but obviously didn't feel well enough to return, leaving him questionable to play vs. the Jazz on Tuesday. Alex Abrines and Doug McDermott stand to gain the most in his absence, with Abrines as the projected starter.
Feb 26 - 6:09 PM

Victor Oladipo (back) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Pelicans.

Oladipo is currently going through his pregame routine and a decision on his status will be made once that's complete. For what it's worth, Dipo was reportedly walking very lightly after sitting down following his pregame workout, so he may be a bit closer to doubtful. If he's out, Alex Abrines will have another opportunity to start. Stay tuned.
Feb 26 - 5:30 PM

Victor Oladipo (back) was spotted going through a pregame workout, but his status for Sunday's game against the Pelicans remains unclear.

Oladipo was forced to spend Friday's game on the sidelines, and only managed to get in a light practice on Saturday, so he's likely headed for a game-time call tonight. Owners will need to check back closer to tip-off for an official update, but if he's out, Alex Abrines would likely draw the start and he'd be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS after putting up 19 points and five triples his last time out. Stay tuned.
Feb 26 - 5:11 PM

Victor Oladipo (back) only went through a light practice on Saturday.

Coach Billy Donovan said he wouldn't be able to play in a game today, which means he's questionable at best for Sunday against the Pelicans. Alex Abrines was big time on Friday with a career-high 19 points in 29 minutes, so he stands to benefit the most again. Plus, Andre Roberson slid over to the two more, which opened up some run for Doug McDermott. Oladipo owners should just sit tight.
Feb 25 - 2:40 PM

Victor Oladipo (back) will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

It will be his first game out of the lineup in the 2017 portion of the season. It's a little worrisome that Oladipo is out just after the All-Star break, especially after he logged 37 minutes in his last game on Feb. 15. With him out, Alex Abrines, Doug McDermott and maybe Semaj Christon benefit.
Feb 24 - 7:13 PM

Victor Oladipo (back spasms) is a game-time decision to face the Lakers on Friday.

This is a new injury for Oladipo for his first game after the break, so that's not really a good sign. If he can't play the Thunder may have to turn to Alex Abrines more often, especially with Anthony Morrow in Chicago. Abrines would be a risky play, of course.
Feb 24 - 6:29 PM

Victor Oladipo recovered on Wednesday with 21 points on 9-of-17 shooting, hitting three 3-pointers with four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes.

VO was held to just six points with little else in 18 minutes during a blowout loss on Monday, but it didn't take him long to regain his rhythm. We haven't seen the early-round value his owners expected on draft day, but he's still bounced back from a rocky start to post top-50 value over the past month. Expect more of the same after the break.
Feb 16 - 12:44 AM

Victor Oladipo was held to six points in Monday's blowout loss to the Wizards.

Oladipo picked up four fouls and only played 18 minutes, but he wasn't the only starter who struggled -- Russell Westbrook was the only starter to hit double-digit points while the rest combined to score 21 points. Dipo finished 2-of-6 from the field with one rebound and two turnovers, but he will have nowhere to go but up on Wednesday in a great matchup vs. the Knicks.
Feb 13 - 11:20 PM

Victor Oladipo scored 20 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

It was obviously the Russell Westbrook show for OKC, but Oladipo shot the ball well with a 9-of-15 shooting line. He's also been starting to string games together, averaging 20.3 points, 7.3 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.3 treys on 45.5 percent from the field and 84.2 percent from the line in his last four. His fantasy owners certainly are hoping he can keep it going.
Feb 11 - 11:38 PM

Victor Oladipo scored 23 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

He needed this one. Oladipo has been in some kind of slump to start this month, making just 32.3 percent from the field in his previous four February games. On the positive side, Oladipo is stuffing the stat sheet like he used to over his last six, averaging 15.8 points, 6.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.0 treys. Once his shot clicks, he should start to be a difference maker for fantasy owners.
Feb 9 - 11:11 PM

Victor Oladipo tied his career-high with 13 rebounds during Sunday's home win, adding 24 points with three assists, two steals and two blocks.

Oladipo made 8-of-18 field goals and 7-of-9 free throws in 39 minutes of action, helping OKC earn their second straight victory after a three-game losing streak. Despite a recent shooting slump, Oladipo's 3-pointers, boards and defensive stats have all been up lately, pegging him to top-50 roto value in the past month.
Feb 5 - 6:48 PM

Victor Oladipo needed 14 shot attempts to score 12 points on Wednesday, going 5-of-14 from the field with one 3-pointer, five boards and one steal in 25 minutes.

The Thunder kick off February with 10 home games in their first 12 contests, a welcome break in the schedule after two tough losses to the Cavs and Spurs. Russell Westbrook was his usual self tonight with 28 points, eight dimes, five boards, two steals and one block in under 30 minutes, but the Thunder got buried in the third quarter. They get another tough matchup when the Grizzlies visit on Friday.
Feb 2 - 12:30 AM

Victor Oladipo scored 17 points during Sunday's loss to the Cavs, to go with seven boards, four assists, one 3-pointer and one steal in 38 minutes.

Oladipo struggled with his shot in this one, going just 6-of-18 from the field, and he also failed to record a steal for the first time in seven games. He had been playing at a top-25 level over the past six, so we expect him to bounce back with a more productive stat line on Tuesday in San Antonio. There's still some room to buy-low here.
Jan 29 - 5:58 PM

Victor Oladipo scored 15 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

We've been waiting all season for Oladipo to start picking up the steals to go with his uptick in offense. That appears to be happening now with at least two steals in each of his last five, averaging 16.4 points, 3.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 blocks, 2.4 steals and 1.8 treys. He's on the upswing.
