Mike Wells gives us some good news from Jermaine O'Neal. After meeting with doctors in New York, it sounds like J.O.'s rehab is progressing to the point where he's expecting to return within a few weeks.
"It can be as long as three to four weeks or sooner depending on the progression. We've seen great strides in the last few days."
I really thought Bird's comments this time weren't directed at J.O. but at Granger, Dunleavy, and others playing now who just haven't been able to rise up and take the Pacers down the stretch of a game.
