The Pacers were back in the gym on Thursday and enjoyed more healthy bodies going through the workout. According to reports, everyone except Malcolm Brogdon (back) and Edmond Sumner (hand) was available. Yes, that includes Victor Oladipo.
Vic even ran in the team’s full-court 5-on-5 portion without any conditions. The good news is he’s doing this after similar workouts up in Fort Wayne with the Mad Ants, so it appears he’s building up the strength in that knee, let alone his legs in general, without any setbacks.
After practice, the vets had to put rookie Goga Bitadze in his place with a prank that filled his new ride with packing peanuts. The best video of the reveal comes from Myles Turner’s Instagram feed as he narrates the action with input from Malcolm Brogdon and a strong supporting role from Alize Johnson and JaKarr Sampson.
