NBA star Victor Oladipo successfully underwent surgery Monday, according to the Pacers.
The team tweeted a brief statement that afternoon saying he is expected to make a full recovery. No timetable was given for when he’s expected to return.
Before Monday night’s game, the team shared a message from the Indiana University alum on the video board.
“I’ll be back better than ever. Everybody stay feathery,” Oladipo said.

The Nigerian ruptured a quad tendon in his right knee during last Wednesday’s game against the Raptors. Thursday afternoon, the team said he would be out for the season.
As a show of support, Monday night’s game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse was a “gold out” game. Everyone in attendance received a gold “Together 4 Vic” shirt.
