Miami Heat guard Victor Oladipo will miss the rest of the season to undergo surgery, the team announced Wednesday. Oladipo’s surgery will take place on Thursday in New York; he has been out since early April with an injured right quadriceps tendon. According to Miami, there is no timetable for his return.
Oladipo’s tendon isn’t ruptured like it was when he underwent a similar surgery in January 2019. His prior injury kept him away from the court for a calendar year. The two-time NBA All-Star played four games for the Heat before the injury, averaging 12 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.
Injuries have plagued Oladipo in recent years, and he has not played in more than 40 games since the 2017-18 season.
