INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers may lose their all-star Victor Oladipo for the rest of the season.

The I-U grad went down with a knee injury at home last night against the Toronto Raptors. He was taken off on a stretcher. The severity was evident as trainers draped a towel over Oladipo’s knee as they waited for the stretcher.

Pacers head coach Nate McMillan says Oladipo always brings his positive spirit to the team, and now the Pacers need to bring the same attitude to him.

An MRI was planned for today.

He is Indiana’s leading scorer with a 19.2 ppg average. Indiana went on to beat the Raptors 110-106.

James Harden scored 61 points in a 114-110 Rocket's win over the Knicks on Wednesday night, tying Kobe Bryants' Madison Square Garden record for the most points by visiting player. After the game, Harden spoke to the media, saying it he had a good time.

Detroit beat New Orleans, 98-94.
