ANALYSIS: Surgeon Dr. Jonathan Glashow spoke
with ESPN after the surgery:
"I repaired the quad tendon and did it a little differently than [he had] it done before," Glashow told ESPN. "The quad wasn't really hooked up. It was torn, and I reattached it. I was amazed he was playing with what he had. I'm very optimistic that I could clear him in six months, by November. I think he's going to play really well again.
"[The surgery] went extremely well, and it's healing beautifully. I'm confident he'll play next year."
Oladipo is set to hit free agency this summer at 29-years-old.
