Former Indiana All-Americans Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo, who will appear Wednesday evening at IU’s “on the road” tour stop at Lucas Oil Stadium, are expected to workout in IU’s facilities this week.
In addition to Oladipo and Zeller, five members of the Miami Heat will also workout in Bloomington: Dwyane Wade, a former player for Tom Crean at Marquette, Mario Chalmers, Norris Cole, Udonis Haslem and Josh McRoberts.
