Magic head coach Frank Vogel called Victor Oladipo a special talent.
Vogel hasn't had a chance to coach Oladipo yet, but is familiar with the 24-year-old from his time as the Pacers head coach. "I think Victor Oladipo is a special, special talent," Vogel said. Oladipo averaged 16.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers in 2015-16 and will be an elite fantasy option in 2016-17 if Vogel can help him take the next step.

Trail Blazers assistant coach David Vanterpool interviewed for Orlando's vacant head coaching position on Wednesday.

Vanterpool has interviewed for head coaching jobs before but he's never made the leap, and Orlando has also discussed their position with Frank Vogel and current assistant Adrian Griffin. GM Rob Hennigan said recently that "stability is very important," seemingly giving Griffin an advantage, but we shouldn't have to wait long for Orlando's final decision.

Victor Oladipo hasn't yet made a decision on whether he'll play for Nigeria in the Olympics.

Oladipo didn't have a bad season with injury at 72 games, so he doesn't likely need any offseason procedures. Going over the season, he had two concussions (three games in April, two games in November), a sprained wrist (two games), a back contusion (one game) and a right knee sprain (two games). He should be a fantasy stud next season.

Victor Oladipo is set to complete the NBA's concussion protocol on Thursday.

This news doesn't matter much for fantasy owners now that Oladipo's season is over, but it's good news to hear that he's recovered from his concussion. Dipo finished his third NBA season with averages of 16.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers on 43.8 percent shooting from the field. His post-All Star Break stats were even better and Oladipo will end up being an elite fantasy option if he can take the next step in 2016-17.

Victor Oladipo (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Oladipo did indicate that he's feeling better, but after suffering his second concussion in a five-month span, the Magic will err on the side of caution with their franchise two-guard. Mario Hezonja should continue to start in his absence, and he's worth a look just about everywhere, while there will be some increased opportunity for Elfrid Payton and Evan Fournier. Owners in re-draft leagues can go ahead and send Dipo to the waiver wire.

Victor Oladipo (concussion) and Aaron Gordon (concussion) will not play against the Bucks on Monday.

Oladipo is very likely to miss Wednesday, as well. With Oladipo out, Evan Fournier should play a ton while Mario Hezonja might get an extended look to help him prepare for his first full offseason as an NBA player. Oladipo's fantasy owners in re-draft leagues should probably drop him.

Victor Oladipo (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Heat.

Oladipo was diagnosed with a concussion after Friday's game, and he'll need to clear the league mandated concussion protocol testing before he is allowed to return to the court. Mario Hezonja will draw the start in his place, and he's someone to consider as a punt in DFS with the increased opportunity. With just two more game remaining for Orlando, Dipo may have already played his final game of the 2015-16 season.
Apr 10 - 4:41 PM

Victor Oladipo has been diagnosed with a concussion, according to head coach Scott Skiles.

Oladipo missed two games earlier this season with a concussion, and with just three more games remaining on the schedule for Orlando, there's a good chance this could end Dipo's season. It'll be Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Brandon Jennings and Mario Hezonja seeing some increased opportunity in Oladipo's absence, and Hezonja is worth a speculative add in deep leagues with Aaron Gordon also dealing with a concussion of his own.

Victor Oladipo received six stitches above his left eye and is doubtful to return to Friday's game against the Heat.

Oladipo took an elbow to the face via Hassan Whiteside, and it doesn't sound like he's going to make it back to the floor tonight for Orlando. He'll end his evening with 13 points, four boards, one assist, tow blocks, one triples and one turnover in 28 minutes. For now, we'll be considering him questionable for Sunday's rematch with Miami, and if he's out it'll be Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier and Brandon Jennings seeing some increased opportunity.

Victor Oladipo had a solid all-around game on Wednesday with 16 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

Oladipo sounded like he was channeling Scott Skiles when describing his team's recent success prior to the game. "I think we're getting a lot of simple buckets, as in transition and finding the open man," he said. "We just gotta continue to keep moving the ball, keep defending and let the defense create for the offense." Orlando fell tonight, 108-104, but their future is bright with Oladipo, Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon, Elfrid Payton and Mario Hezonja all under guaranteed contracts next season.

Victor Oladipo (ankle) started Sunday's game and scored 22 points on 9-of-18 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs, with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and zero turnovers in 39 minutes.

VO sprained his ankle on Saturday and recently overcame a wrist injury, but it seems like nothing can slow him down right now. Over the past two weeks he's averaged 16.4 points, 1.4 threes, 4.8 boards and 5.2 assists, with a ridiculous 3.6 steals and 1.4 blocks. Those defensive stats alone are carrying plenty of his fantasy owners to the championship.

Victor Oladipo (ankle) will play and start vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday.

He suffered a sprained ankle vs. the Bucks on Saturday, but it must be pretty minor if he's going to play in a meaningless game. His owners can safely keep him locked into lineups.
Apr 3 - 4:52 PM

Victor Oladipo (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

He suffered an ankle sprain on Saturday vs. the Bucks and his status is currently up in the air. If he is held out, Elfrid Payton will run the offense more and Evan Fournier and Mario Hezonja will be asked to carry more weight on offense as well. Stay tuned.
Apr 3 - 4:22 PM

Victor Oladipo filled it up during a 113-110 loss to the Bucks on Friday, scoring 18 points with three rebounds, five assists, five steals, four blocks and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Obviously his wrist issue is behind him. Oladipo getting hurt and missing a couple games last month might have been costly to fantasy owners because he's been one of the hottest players. Since the break, Oladipo averaged 19.7 points, 5.2 boards, 4.0 assists, 2.3 steals, 1.1 blocks and 1.5 treys. He has been a top-10 player per game in standard leagues.

Victor Oladipo scored 18 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers against the Pacers on Thursday.

The former Indiana Hoosier got a nice ovation from the crowd in this game. Obviously Oladipo's wrist injury is behind him and he should be ready to roll the rest of the way. The Magic care not for your tanking.
