The Indiana Pacers guard started Thursday's scrimmage against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Oladipo reversed course on his decision not to suit up in the NBA's restart recently, saying there was "a strong possibility that I might play" after his body responded well to basketball activity.

The two-time All-Star missed this season's first 47 games as he recovered from a torn quad tendon suffered in January 2019. Despite returning to action this past January, he said July 3 he had been advised to sit out the restart due to risk of reaggravating the injury.

Oladipo's presence figures to give the Pacers a huge boost in the bubble. He averaged just shy of 14 points in 13 games this season.
