If you expected Jermaine O’Neal to recover seamlessly from injury, you’re probably the type of person who looks at a half-filled glass of water and sees Mila Kunis naked, begging you to come have fun. O’Neal’s injury, of course, is worse than expected, and let me advise you — YOU WILL NEVER GET MILA KUNIS! SHE’S MINE!!

Jermaine O’Neal said he’s got three choices: 1) take a cortisone shot, 2) a minor wrist surgery or 3) season-ending wrist surgery. He is still pondering his decision and hasn’t had the shot yet. He is going to make his decision in a few days. Said injury is more serious than expected.
Of course O’Neal is considering season-ending surgery one day after he was supposed to return in two weeks. I would say that season-ending surgery, if it happens, would be enough to keep O’Neal’s name out of most trade talks, but any team acquiring him probably knows he’s a mannequin on most nights regardless.
