Shaq Returns Tonight

by November 25, 2009

The Cavs won four of the five games he missed, but they’re ready to welcome him back to the lineup: “After missing five games with a shoulder strain, O’Neal said he expected to play Wednesday night at Detroit. Asked to put a percentage on his chances of returning that night, O’Neal grinned and said, ‘Twenty-seven percent.’ But he amended that later and said he expected to play as long as he doesn’t have any setbacks. ‘It felt pretty good,’ O’Neal said of his first practice in a couple weeks. ‘I got it banged up once or twice today, so I’ll go home tonight and hopefully it doesn’t feel too bad in the morning.”‘
