Indian Pacer forward Jermaine O'Neal will miss at least 8 weeks with the groin tear he suffered in Cleveland earlier in the week.
What is it with this team? They are finally able to deal Artest, and now they lose O'Neal. I actually feel bad for Rick Carlisle. He is one of the best coaches in the NBA, but has been hit with horrible luck throughout his career. First he gets dumped by Detroit after back to back 60 win seasons, now he has had to coach a seriuosly under-manned Pacers team for consecutive years.
