Before the game, Skiles said that the analytics showed there were better combinations of players and it was time to try something new. He said he struggled with the decision because Oladipo in many ways was the team’s best defender and most aggressive offensive player, but conceded that while the decision was tough it was necessary. As surprising as this move might seem from the outside, there has been a growing sense that Skiles was losing patience with the streaky shooting he was getting from his backcourt and the lack of a consistent three-point threat on the floor was making it unnecessarily hard.
After getting advice from several teammates, doctors and trainers about the long-term severity of concussions, Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo vowed that he would be patient in coming back and he wouldn’t play again until he was fully cleared to do so. That final clearance came on Wednesday afternoon – nearly one week after Oladipo sustained a concussion following a blow to the head – allowing him to return to the starting lineup with his Magic teammates. Per the NBA’s concussion protocol, Oladipo’s clearance came via a NBA-appointed neurologist.
