MIAMI (Associated Press) — We don’t know if Victor Oladipo will be available or not. That’s a huge victory after three years of treatment and difficulties.
Oladipo is listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the Houston Rockets by the Miami Heat.
In other words, the two-time All-Star has an equal chance of returning to action for the first time in nearly a year, and barring a last-minute setback, it is widely anticipated that this will soon be the case.
Coach Erik Spoelstra of the Heat
Coach Erik Spoelstra of the Heat remarked, “He has incredible fortitude.” Getting hurt and missing much of the season is the worst possible situation for a professional sports player. One of the hardest things for an athlete to overcome is their mental health.
Despite your best efforts, you may not always feel like you belong. You’re not sure if all your hard work is paying off, and you have your doubts about the future once you’re healthy. Athletes have it rough there.

Oladipo could add even more depth to a Heat club that is currently 43-22 and leads the Eastern Conference by three games with 17 games still to play. In his career, he has averaged 17.5 points per game and was averaging 19.8 points per game while playing for the Miami Heat, Houston Rockets, and Indiana Pacers in the 2016–17 season when he got injured.
The Rockets are the franchise who traded him to the Heat a year ago for Kelly Olynyk, Avery Bradley, and a couple of future second-round selections.
‘He looks amazing,’ Heat forward Jimmy Butler said. He’s been toiling away at it for quite some time now, putting in endless hours of labour at both the gym and the rehabilitation centre. Also, I can’t wait for him to return.
The Heat had played 89 games without Oladipo, and he was out for their playoff run last year as well. During the three years since his initial injury, he has only participated in 56 games. He was out for a whole year after his initial operation and another 11 months this time.
Spoelstra Acknowledges that it will be Difficult to Give Equal Playing Time to All of the Players.
Time guard Kyle Lowry will return from a team-approved absence to deal with a personal problem at some point in the future, though no one has specified when.
Markieff Morris has been out of action since he was hurt in a fight with Denver’s Nikola Jokic on November 8. He has been practising, and an update on his potential comeback date is on the horizon. This lineup will soon include Oladipo as well.

Heat forward Caleb Martin predicted that the new player will be a “big boost” for the team.
Oladipo has participated in several Heat practises and made two rehab appearances with Miami’s G League affiliate in Sioux Falls (the Skyforce), but he has yet to make his season debut with the Heat. At the start of the season, he stated his intention to “have one of the best comeback stories ever.”

“I truly respect and admire how Vic is able to preserve his good mentality throughout this entire process,” Spoelstra said. There’s nothing else like it. That’s one of the things I really appreciate about him.
