Indiana Pacers star Victor Oladipo shared his thoughts on the NBA suspension and whether it is possible for the season to resume.

Oladipo admitted this is a very difficult situation for everybody, but he would love to play basketball again, if the NBA finds a way to resume the season safely.

“Obviously you want to play the sport you love and spend so much time, blood, and tears preparing to play. But what is going on is a very serious matter and deserves to be taken seriously.

People have lost loved ones and everyone has to make sure that they are being as safe as possible. If there is a way that we can resume the season safely, I am all for it. But like everyone else, we will just have to wait and see,” Oladipo told TalkBasket.net on Tuesday.

Prior to the NBA suspension, the Pacers were fifth in the Eastern Conference with a 39-26 record. For his part, the versatile guard, who made his season debut on January 29, was averaging 13.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game this season.
