Victor Oladipo left Thursday's game between the Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors on a stretcher with an apparent knee injury.

Oladipo suffered the injury with 4:05 remaining in the second quarter when he tried to chase down a pass from Kyle Lowry to Pascal Siakam in transition. Oladipo fell to the floor, immediately looked at his knee and signaled to the sideline for medical attention. A towel was then placed over his knee.

Oladipo acknowledged Pacers fans at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse as he was taken off the court by putting his arms in the air.

Paul George and LeBron James are among the NBA players who have since tweeted their thoughts and prayers.

The team announced that Oladipo will have an MRI tomorrow to evaluate what is being called a "serious injury to his right knee." Further updates will be provided then.
