08:21 AM ET 10.05 | Jermaine O'Neal sat out Monday's practice, and it is likely he will miss the rest of the week. The team was scrimmaging with about five minutes left in the session, and after fighting Shaquille O'Neal for a rebound, Jermaine felt his hamstring burn as he turned to go up court. He had never dealt with hamstring issues before, so he left the floor as soon as he felt the sensation.

This club looks like it could be really dangerous, but on the flip side, I can also see 4 or 5 guys out at the same time with some nagging injury ... health (once again) is going to be the key for this club.

Not too sure that means a whole helluvalot when:

A. He's not playing.

B. He's not playing.

And C. Bill Wennington, Luc Longley, and Will Perdue are readily available.

seeing alot of him last year iam glad him & his 20M are gone !

we have 4 C in our roster & while none maybe be a star they wont need to do much when you have the #2 SG, #1 SF & a top 5 PF !

If the Bulls won with those characters iam sure the Heat will manage with Big Z, J.Anthony, J.Magloire & D. Pittman !

They say Booze was really picking his nose and went too deep before hearing his hand crack. I mean how do you fall in your own house walking breaking your hand. I have a hard time believing it.
