Shaq Injury Update

Shaq left tonight’s game with what was initially described as a sore leg. Word after the game has labeled the injury as a sore hip. Shaq played just over six minutes before being pulled for Semih Erden who scored a season high 14 points in 30 minutes of play.

The initial expectation is that Shaq will sit out the next two games.

A hip can be a tricky injury to recover from and more will be known over the next couple of days. Shaq was long over due for a rest so the move to have him sit out a couple of games is not all that surprising. Should be interesting to see how Doc juggles the lineup over the next few games. Does KG slide into the 5 bringing Big Baby back into the starting lineup or does he give Erden his first start? What would you do? Let us know.
