Jermaine O'Neal Misses Practice; Gets MRI

New, comments

That title is both unsurprising and depressing all in one. Here we go again.

BostonHerald.com - Blogs: Celtics Insider" Blog Archive " O’Neal misses practice

Jermaine O’Neal was not at today’s Celtic practice. He was at New England Baptist Hospital earlier getting an MRI on his right knee. The results of the MRI are not yet available, and O’Neal is being listed as a game-time decision for tomorrow’s noon start against Memphis. O’Neal missed three games last week with a bruised left knee.

That's just frustrating. Hopefully he'll be alright and just needs some extra rest, but I can't must up much optimism there. What's more frustrating is that the team was just starting to look largely healthy again. Check out this stat from Paul Flannery of WEEI:

Coming into the game, the starting five had played together for a grand total of 99 minutes, per basketballvalue.com.

Get well soon Jermaine. (And get on the phone soon Danny, we need a center.)
