The Goods On The Game, Vol. 12, JO starts
I imagine, or hope, there's somebody out there waiting for this, so here it is.
Have just been told that Jermaine O'Neal, who strained his left knee in the fourth quarter of Friday's game against New Jersey, will be in his usual spot in the starting lineup this afternoon against Boston.
O'Neal worked out in the team's practice facility about an hour before tip-off and pronounced himself ready to do. Whether that means a full load of minutes, remains to be seen. If he's got much discomfort, or if the knee swells up, he might cut it back but, as of now, he's a go.
Talk to you, or at you,during the game.
