Miami Heat guard Victor Oladipo was expected to play a major role in the team's rotation this season, but he has missed the first seven games with a chronic knee issue.

Oladipo has already been ruled out for Miami's game on Nov. 1 against the Golden State Warriors, and he could miss even more time as he works his way back into playing shape.

This isn't the first time Oladipo has dealt with knee issues, as he's played in just 96 games since the start of the 2018-19 season.

Oladipo still doesn't have a firm date for when he will return for Miami, although he has been warming up prior to home games to start the season.

The Heat have played Kyle Lowry, Max Strus, Tyler Herro and Gabe Vincent as their main guards with Oladipo ailing. Duncan Robinson has also seen minutes for Miami.

Last season, Oladipo averaged 12.4 points per game in eight regular season matchups with Miami before playing a big role in the playoffs. The team certainly would love if he could return soon after starting 2-5 this season.
