Magic notebook: Victor Oladipo's availability for the season opener remains unclear: ht.ly/D4lpA

Josh Robbins

My guess -- guess -- is the Magic will be conservative with Victor Oladipo's return. It's not worth rushing him back too soon.

John Denton

After going through stretching, sprints & dunks, @Orlando Magic G @Victor Oladipo is held out of scrimmaging. He's riding a bike to stay loose.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo is sitting out the latest portion of the practice, which features some light work in transition.

Josh Robbins

The highlights so far have been dunks by Aaron Gordon, Victor Oladipo and Willie Green.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo, with a brace on his knee, is participating so far. Channing Frye (knee) is not participating.

Josh Robbins

An obvious point, but the Magic will pick up their 15-16 options on Oladipo, Fournier, Harkless & Nicholson before the 10/31 deadline

Tom Moore

#Magic's Victor Oladipo and Channing Frye still out tonight vs #Sixers

Josh Robbins

I get the sense that Oladipo's MCL sprain was less severe than Frye's MCL sprain.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo will not play Friday night against the Pistons. Neither will Channing Frye, JVaughn said.

Evan Dunlap

Why might Victor Oladipo break out as a sophomore? An ESPN Insider analyst explains sbnation.com/e/6665480

Mary Stevens

Tomorrow night the #Magic will be WITHOUT Victor Oladipo (sprained MCL) and Channing Frye (sprained MCL).

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo (knee) will not play tomorrow night against Flamengo, JVaughn said. Neither will Channing Frye (knee).

Rick Bonnell

FWIW, I think the Magic is on the right path. A Payton-Oladipo backcourt, plus Vucevic, reminds me a little of how Wiz built.

Rick Bonnell

No Victor Oladipo tonight for the Magic. He has a sprained knee.

Brian Schmitz

Victor Oladipo was developed slowly last yr and was behind Jameer Nelson + Arron Afflalo. Vaughn: Can't compare Oladipo, Payton situations

Brian Schmitz

Channing Frye, Victor Oladipo are on Magic's Charlotte trip. Coach Jacque Vaughn said both progressing from knee sprains, doing pool work.

Nobody is safe @Victor Oladipo http://t.co/dcCrSqzXVI

John Denton

#Magic coach Jacque Vaughn listed Victor Oladipo as "questionable" for tomorrow night but said he almost certainly WON'T play vs. #Hornets

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo (knee) is highly unlikely to play tomorrow night in Charlotte. Willie Green (knee) is questionable to play.

Hey IU fans! That's the back of Oladipo's head. Seriously. You're welcome. http://t.co/jIGiRhKjeb

Candace Buckner

Just before #Pacers starters intros, Paul George walked over to greet Victor Oladipo. Looks like PG will be seated on the bench for this gm

Josh Robbins

Paul George and Victor Oladipo are greeting each other right now at midcourt. Both are out tonight.

Candace Buckner

#Magic starters: Luke Ridnour, Evan Fournier, Nikola Vucevic, Tobias Harris, Aaron Gordon. Again, Victor Oladipo (sprained right MCL) is out

West (rest), Whittington (sore leg), Watson (sore foot) out tonight for #Pacers vs. #Magic. No Oladipo, Frye, Green for Orlando.

Scott Agness

John Denton

#Magic Victor Oladipo after sprints: "It's getting better every day. I feel like I'm getting there, getting closer." No timetable on return.

Scott Agness

Look who’s in town - @Victor Oladipo, though he’s being held out because of a MCL sprain. #iubb http://t.co/d1SUnM71y3

John Denton

#Magic G @Victor Oladipo is clearly ramping up his workload, getting in some sprint work before game. He sprained MCL in R knee last week.

Mary Stevens

The #Magic will be without Victor Oladipo, Channing Frye and Willie Green tonight against the #Pacers, per @Josh Robbins

John Denton

#Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said Vic Oladipo, Channing Frye & Willie Green will NOT play tonight vs. #Pacers All have minor knee soreness.

Josh Robbins

Willie Green partially participated in practice yesterday but won't play tonight. Also out: Oladipo & Frye.

Victor Oladipo of @IUBloomington & @IndianaMBB loves his trips back to Indiana. Story: ht.ly/CwRJe

Mary Stevens

Victor Oladipo will not play against the Pacers tomorrow night but he will travel with the team. He calls Indiana his second home. #Hoosiers

Mary Stevens

Oladipo also said the rookies performed phenomenal during their overtime win over the Miami Heat this past Tuesday.

Mary Stevens

Earlier today, Oladipo said he is making good progress with his knee and will take his time and not rush his return.

Mary Stevens

In case you missed it, Magic guard Victor Oladipo sprained the MCL in his right knee last week and will be out indefinitely.

John Denton

Still no firm timetable on return for #Magic G @Victor Oladipo but he said today that his knee is feeling better and he's increasing workload.

John Denton

#Magic G @Victor Oladipo became close friends w/ #Pacers @Paul George when VO played for @IUBloomington Vic plans to visit PGeorge today in Indy

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo won't be able to play Friday night, but he's looking forward to being in Indiana: "It's my second home."

John Denton

No timetable on returns of @Victor Oladipo or @Channing Frye but #Magic encouraged by them traveling. CF shot FTs on Tue, VO upping workload.

Josh Robbins

Heat superstar Dwyane Wade says "the sky's the limit" for Magic guard Victor Oladipo. Notebook: ht.ly/CpLzA

John Denton

#Magic lead #Heat 52-47 at half. ORL has 13 assists on their 22 FGs. Payton & Fournier running team well in absence of Oladipo.

Josh Robbins

As expected, Vic Oladipo, Channing Frye and Willie Green are all on the bench in suits.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo's injury moves rookie Elfrid Payton further into the spotlight. Article: ht.ly/ClTYJ

Mary Stevens

Changing Frye and Victor Oladipo sprained their MCLs in the first week of training camp. This will open up minutes for Harris and Payton.
