    Default J.O out for a week or two (EDIT - or 8!!)

    or three or.....

    http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl.../1088/SPORTS04



    The Indiana Pacers acquired a former All-Star on Wednesday, but they could be without their best player for some time.


    Forward Jermaine O'Neal said Wednesday night he hopes his injured left groin will keep him out of the lineup for only a week or two.
    "It's not feeling too good. I'm hoping it won't keep me out too long," O'Neal said in a phone interview. "The timing of this couldn't be any worse, especially with (Peja) Stojakovic coming. We need everybody so that we can start jelling. I can't be there to help the chemistry and help this team."
    O'Neal injured his groin early in the fourth quarter of the Pacers' blowout loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. He immediately went to the locker room. O'Neal had an MRI on Wednesday and the team should know the results today.
    O'Neal has been hampered by injuries this season. He missed three games with pneumonia and three games with a left ankle injury, all this month.
    "Any time you're without your best player, it's going to present a challenge," coach Rick Carlisle said. "There's no doubt Jermaine is our most important player, but collectively we're going to have to find a way to win games."
    The Pacers, who have lost four consecutive games, play Cleveland at Conseco Fieldhouse on Friday.

    At first, I thought that was part of the Indy Star story. I think I need some rest. Tough luck with JO, this is a bad time to lose an All Star for a couple weeks.

    Just when he got back. This is horse*****. No matter what we are down a player all the time. It would be good to see what a healthy team can accomplish. Oh well that is how this year has gone.

    This sucks! I guess he wouldnt have lasted long if he came back because our next few games are b2b's.

    No JO when we play the Pistons either?

    That doesn't bother me, he's never usually effective against the Pistons anyway.

    It's fine, according to the pacers website, we can just put peja on kobe and he's on lockdown for the game.

    If he can hold Kobe under 80 we have a good chance to beat those guys. Peja might go for 75 if they feed him the ball.

    Hey now! In case you didn't get the memo, you're only allowed to criticize the front of the laundry, not the back (I think it works both ways, but I'm not sure )..........

    I heard on WIBC noon news that J.O had an MRI yesterday and the results won't be known until later today (Thursday) so we don't know yet, it could still be bad

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Well, so much for seeing how Peja fits in to the Pacers scheme. I kept hearing how a low post presence was going to help his game come back.
    Now, after JO returns in March(?), we'll have a few months to get him back into shape and try to see how this all fits together before the end of the season.

    In the big picture--The Pistons are going to clobber the East anyway.

    Let him rest the season. Trade Peja for a decent prospect. Blow the roster up. Hire a 3rd mascot. I don't care anymore.
