Jermaine O’Neal’s Season Over?

Indiana Pacers forward Jermaine O’Neal told The Star on Sunday that he is willing to sit out the rest of the season, if necessary, to take care of his ongoing left knee problem. O’Neal said his knee, which he had surgery on last April, has not fully recovered and that he returned to the court too soon. ‘That’s really the prime option for me,’ O’Neal said Sunday afternoon, of sitting out the rest of the season. ‘We’re going to rehab now like it was the summer, with an extensive rehab. If that consists of a month or the rest of the season, I need to take the necessary steps to not come back on something that’s not really healthy.’ Click here for more from the Indianapolis Star.
