Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo left Wednesday's game against the Toronto Raptors with an apparent right-knee injury. Oladipo went down while chasing Pascal Siakam on a Raptors fast break with four minutes to go in the second quarter. Oladipo immediately grabbed his leg and was carried off the court on a stretcher. Shortly after, the Pacers announced that Oladipo will undergo an MRI tomorrow, though league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that the sixth-year guard might be done for the season.
