INDIANAPOLIS — Pacer star Victor Oladipo appears to be making significant progress in recovering from a season-ending leg injury.

He's been rehabbing in Miami, after being lost for the season in late-January when he suffered a ruptured quad tendon.

Video from a Miami gym shows Oladipo with a brace on his right leg, walking slowly and hitting three point baskets.

"They say you gotta crawl before you can walk. They say you gotta walk before you can run. Either way, I'm truly unbreakable," said Oladipo, while going through the drill.

There is still no timetable for Oladipo's return.

He suffered the injury in a game against Toronto at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Oladipo was averaging 19-points per-game for the Pacers this season.

The former Indiana University player came to the Pacers last season, averaged 23-points per-game and made the NBA All Star Team.
