Jermaine O’Neal’s recovery from knee surgery has taken a big step, according to Danny Ainge.
The Celtics’ president of basketball operations watched his recuperating center work out in Chicago this morning, and later said that O’Neal’s return to the team appears to be on schedule.
“It could be next week, which is about what we hoped for – the end of the month,” said Ainge. “He looks good. I watched him go through his workouts.”
The piece goes on to add that Jermaine has lost 12 pounds and has not had any swelling after workouts.
Sooooooo…. that sounds good. I wonder which O'Neal will actually be back first?
