This just in on JO
Who loves ya, babes? Still sitting in the ante room off the Raptor locker room and figure I better let you know this:
Jermaine O’Neal’s 99.999999 per cent out for tonight against Charlotte.
“I’m not 100 per cent sure he’s not going to play but it’s just a feeling,” Sam said just a little while ago. “He didn’t practice the last two days, he’s been getting a lot of treatment, he’s moving a little better.
“We’ll know for sure this afternoon. Because a guy didn’t practice, you play as if he’s not going to play.”
But the mood was prevalent that no matter what happens this afternoon, it’ll be something of a miracle if O’Neal’s in the lineup.
If he can’t go, Jamario Moon returns to the starting lineup although Sam did say you’d see three bigs – Chris Bosh, Andrea Bargnani and Kris Humphries – on the court lot.
That’s it for now, be back later tonight.
