Just ran into Raptors forward Jermaine O’Neal in the locker room and he still wasn’t sure whether he’d play in tonight’s game with the Lakers. His left ankle is still pretty swollen. That’s more of an issue right now than his knee.
“The knee feels pretty good actually,” O’Neal said. “It’s the ankle that’s still pretty sore. I’m going to go warm up and see how it feels.”
O’Neal has missed the last to games with the ankle injury. If he’s out, that obviously hurt’s Toronto’s attack quite a bit.
