Jermaine O'Neal practiced with no restrictions yesterday at the C's Waltham training facility. This is great news for a team who's injury problems have struck hardest at the center position.
It was J.O.'s fist full practice in about a month, and it was obvious he was ecstatic to be back in action. Later on in the evening he tweeted: "I had my first full practice with the team today in more than a month and damn it felt good to be back out there with my brothers again! "
The Big Shamrock also practiced yesterday, and according to ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg, he will be a game-time decision today when the Celtics face the Pacers at the Garden. Semih did not practice on Saturday due to what the Celts said was a "groin pull."
Shortly after Jermaine tweeted about having a good practice, he put out another tweet hinting that he'll be on the court Christmas Day in Orlando.. That truly would be a welcome gift to the C's roster.
