INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The Indiana Pacers are getting their all-star back.

The team tweeted Wednesday afternoon guard Victor Oladipo is "available to play" after missing 11 games with a sore right knee. Oladipo last played in a game November 17, when he played just five minutes in a home win over Atlanta.


Head coach Nate McMillan said Oladipo will start for the Pacers, but will play limited minutes.


Oladipo is averaging 21.4 points and more than six rebounds per game this season. The Pacers were 7-4 in his absence and have won their last four games.
