  • Heat's Victor Oladipo: Missing entire road trip

    Oladipo (knee), who has been ruled out for Wednesday's game in Portland, won't play in the remaining two games of the Heat's West Coast road trip Thursday at Golden State and Saturday at Sacramento, Shandel Richardson of SI.com reports.

    Oladipo has yet to make his 2022-23 debut while he continues to deal with chronic tendinosis in his left knee. The Heat have maintained plans to exercise patience with Oladipo, who has played in just 96 regular-season games since the start of the 2018-19 campaign due to injuries. Once he's cleared to make his season debut, Oladipo is expected to help pick up some of the scoring void on the second unit that was created by reigning Sixth Man of the Year Award winner Tyler Herro moving to the starting five this season.

  • Heat's Victor Oladipo: Not traveling to Portland

    Oladipo (knee) is not traveling to Portland for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

    Oladipo has yet to debut this season. Injury issues continue to plague his career. He hasn't officially been ruled out for the Heat's entire road trip, but it would be surprising if he joined midway through. Assuming he's out, his next chance to play at home would be Nov. 1 against the Warriors.

  • Heat's Victor Oladipo: Remains out Friday

    Oladipo (knee) won't take the floor again Friday against the Celtics.

    Oladipo was deemed questionable for the opener before ultimately being ruled out for the contest. With the Heat scheduled for back-to-back contests Friday and Saturday, the Heat have ruled the veteran out for the front end, and his status remains unclear for part two. Gabe Vincent, Max Strus and Duncan Robinson are the primary candidates to pick up additional minutes in his absence.

  • Heat's Victor Oladipo: Ruled out Wednesday

    Oladipo (knee) will not play in Wednesday's season opener versus the Bulls, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Oladipo is being held out of Wednesday's game due to left knee tendinosis, which is a chronic issue. It is unclear how much time Oladipo will miss, but it is concerning, considering Oladipo has not played over 36 games in a season since the 2017-18 campaign. With Oladipo out and likely receiving significant load management, expect Gabe Vincent, Max Strus and Duncan Robinson to see extended playing time.

  • Heat's Victor Oladipo: Deemed questionable for opener

    Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra confirmed that Oladipo will be listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls while the 30-year-old manages left knee tendinosis, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    On a positive note, Spoelstra noted that Oladipo's tendinosis is not in the knee he had surgically repaired in January 2019, a recovery that lasted just over a year. That being said, Oladipo's history could prompt the Heat to err on the side of caution with his usage to begin the season, though the team will likely wait and see how he's feeling during shootaround Wednesday before updating his status for the opener.

  • Heat's Victor Oladipo: Misses practice Tuesday

    Oladipo sat out practice Tuesday due to left knee tendinitis, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Oladipo and the Heat are scheduled to open the regular season Wednesday against the Bulls, so this issue popping up so close to the season isn't a great sign. Oladipo should play a key bench role when healthy, but it will be worth monitoring his status on injury reports leading up to the opener.
