Jermaine O'Neal - Out For The Season
Boston Celtic's C Jermaine O'Neal will have season ending surgery on his ailing left wrist.
The Celtics announced Monday night that O'Neal has a wrist condition that was irritated by a fall during a game against the Dallas Mavericks at the end of February. The wrist has not responded well to therapy, and the decision was made to proceed with surgery.
This may end O'Neal's tenure in the NBA, as he could barley stay healthy the past few years.
"I'm not sure what my basketball future is, but I want to thank the cities of Portland, Indiana, Miami, Toronto and Boston for 16 great years," O'Neal wrote on Twitter.
The Celt's, currently 7th in the Eastern Conference, are rumored to be looking at Ronny Turiaf as O'Neal's replacement.
