Indiana Pacers star guard Victor Oladipo is day-to-day after getting scratched in the left eye during his team’s 113-101 loss Tuesday to the Miami Heat in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.
The Pacers said Oladipo visited a clinic in the NBA’s Orlando bubble and an initial evaluation showed no immediate concerns. He will be monitored over the next few days.
Oladipo was limited to eight minutes before he suffered the injury with 3:26 remaining in the first, appearing to be hit first by the Heat’s Jae Crowder.
In 19 games this season, the seventh-year guard averaged 14.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists.
