    THANK YOU...
    I needed to hear something like this. It's so easy to fall into depression when you hear bad news about something you love. But youre right, it's not the end of the world and JO will do his best to get back for the end of the season and the playoffs..
    Yeah, so did I. I have been a bit down since I heard about JO's status.

    Now you all know how it feels when a couple years ago when all the Kings players kept getting injured.

    It happens. I'm sure every team in the league has been through this once in its history. It'll all pass.

    If Reggie were coming back I would be for shutting everyone down and waiting for next year. But because this is it for him, all the bad news becomes more and more painful.

    OK... This season sucks, and when you have such a great team to start with, it sucks to say, "wait til next year". However, the closest thing that I can remember to a team being devestated by an injury or something like this is when David Robinson got injured leading to the drafting of Duncan. Obviously, we are unlikely to get the #1 pick, but as bad as this season is, I wouldn't mind replacing Reggie with a lottery pick.

    Ya know, in spite of Magic Rat's....uhhh....inspiring if naive comments, I'm also beginning to wonder if a lottery pick (in a weak draft as I understand it) can combine with a healthy JO, healthy Tins, Artest, a resigned DD, and a helluva chip on our shoulder to make for a great season next year! Can't Wait!!!!

    Sigh....I thought I stopped thinking about "next year" in March back in '85.

    next year only does something for me if reggie gets back...

    i am the utmost optimist when it comes to the pacers... even after the suspensions and all up until now i believed this team could contend for a championship, especially after the dale davis signing... a little part of me still does...

    but bottom line, it sounds like this injury, even if JO guts it out and plays this season, which im sure he will if only because of uncle reg, he wont be at full strength. and to make a run in the playoffs, this team needs a fullly healthy tinsley and JO for the stretch run...

    keep your heads up guys! If we are within a 3-4 game radius of the playoffs I believe JO gives it a shot. Not like the sixers are catching up. lol

    I don't how bad it is but. I had 3 of the four that form the rotor cuff torn completly into this was last part of Nov 04 and I am still not healed up. I know I am a lot older that JO and not even close the phy condition. But still this last one of mine has been a bear. The DR told me had the next to brand new shoulder. Sure hop that JO is not messed up like that

    I just read on Pacers.com that we should know how long Oneal is out either today or tomorrow. So everyone just pray to the basketball god that he can come back pretty soon!

    I'm among those that saw this article and said to myself "Well, that figures. When is the draft and who'll be available at the 12-14 slot?"


    As I've said before, we have been snakebit since before the season even started. I've come to believe that every team has a year like this and it's just our turn. Either that or God hates the Pacers.

    He doesn't want to go out like this. He knows how he feels and he feels he can't put forth the effort anymore. Plus, who in his right mind would want to go through another year of half the people on the board saying he shouldn't be starting?

    Concern grows for O'Neal
    Carlisle says All-Star's shoulder injury may be more serious than the team originally thought.

    Key matchup
    Pacers guard Anthony Johnson vs. Warriors guard Baron Davis
    Davis was acquired from New Orleans for Dale Davis and Speedy Claxton on Feb. 24. Baron Davis has been coming off the bench for Golden State as he recovers from a bruised Achilles' tendon. The Warriors are 3-4 since trading for Davis. He is averaging 11.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 6.3 assists in 28.3 minutes. He scored 21 points against Detroit on Wednesday. Johnson likely will make his second straight start in place of Fred Jones, who is bothered with the flu. Johnson had 13 points and nine assists in 38 minutes against Utah. Johnson, who has started 15 games this season in place of injured Jamaal Tinsley, lost his starting job to Jones last week.

    About the Warriors
    The Warriors (19-42) have the second-worst record in the Western Conference, but one of their victories was against the Pacers, 104-96 on Dec. 4. Golden State has dropped two of its past three. Jason Richardson is the Warriors' leading scorer, averaging 22.9 points a game in 52 starts for first-year coach Mike Montgomery.

    Reality is starting to set in for the Indiana Pacers: All-Star forward Jermaine O'Neal probably will be out longer than the five games he is required to miss for being placed on the injured list.

    How much longer? Nobody knows.

    "There's no official word yet, but I'm starting to be afraid this is more serious than we hoped," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said Thursday.

    O'Neal has spent most of the week in Los Angeles, visiting doctors and getting extra opinions on his right shoulder. Carlisle doesn't know whether O'Neal will need surgery. If he does, O'Neal's already shortened season likely would be over.

    O'Neal sprained his shoulder while attempting a dunk late in the first half of the March 3 game at Denver. The Pacers put him on the injured list the next day, meaning the earliest he could return is Wednesday against Utah.

    O'Neal quit wearing a sling just days after the injury but favored the shoulder while walking around Staples Center in Los Angeles.

    The Pacers, who are contending for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, are 2-1 since O'Neal's injury.

    The Pacers have been able to get by defensively with the help of Dale Davis, who was signed the day O'Neal went on the injured list.

    Davis has started all three games since joining the team.

    "Had we not been able to get Dale back on the team, we probably wouldn't have been able to win two of these last three games," Carlisle said. "He's been that important to us."

    Aaaaaand I just realized that while that thread is where we've already discussed the issue, the article wasn't actually posted on it. I'll merge the threads.
