Jonesy and I just finished taping the latest VLOG here in Detroit but I thought I’d give you the quick written word as well … while we’re waiting for the video to upload …
Jermaine O’Neal WILL play tonight for the Raptors.
O’Neal has missed 11 of the last 12 games for the Raps. He came back – briefly – against the Pacers last Friday but then missed Toronto’s next two games against Phoenix and Atlanta.
*IF* a trade is out there (with Miami? or anybody else?) this is exactly what O’Neal / the Raptors need — a healthy J.O. proving he’s now good-to-go.
Unfortunately for T.O., Jose Calderon (hamstring) will not play and Kris Humphries (shin) is n/a as well.
Check for the VLOG in about 30 minutes.
