Via the Herald: 

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?

    Forget coming back next week. Come back in June. If he comes back now, he’ll be out again in a week. Save him for 7 games in June!

    JO. He has got to prove himself. He has an obligation to this team that he hasn’t fulfill yet.

    Funny that it’s Danny Ainge pushing the news.
    Of course, he still has to keep the trade plan up.. and he’d better be lucky about it, because C’s got another brutal loss against a mediocre team like Memphis, Krstic and Murphy flat sucked badly.
    I don’t believe it.
