Victor Oladipo will be making his return on January 29th at home against the Chicago Bulls. Oladipo announced the news in a personal video to the fans.

When Oladipo makes his return, it will have been just over a year since he played his last game. Oladipo went out with a ruptured quad against the Raptors last year on January 23rd.

The Pacers have played well this season without Oladipo. They currently sit at 6th in the Eastern Conference and hold a record of 23-14. The team is a lot different from the last time Oladipo played though. It will take some time for him to mesh with his new teammates in live action against another team. His back-court mate, Malcolm Brogdon, has also struggled with injuries this year. Getting a few games in together before the All-Star break in February would be huge for the Pacers moving forward.
