News out of Celtics camp today is that center Jermaine O’Neal was forced to sit out yesterday’s game after his injured knee swelled up. O’Neal has been dealing with knee issues all season and has already missed 21 games this season due to injury. The Celtics have not ruled out surgery and could be without O’Neal for a considerable amount of time.
The Celtics are good enough to coast into the playoffs and can afford to rest O’Neal in hopes he’ll be able to make a contribution come playoff time.
With the injuries piling up and Shaquille O’Neal’s ineffective play, bringing back Rasheed Wallace is looking like a better idea every day.
